upfront upfront Canon Debuts Océ Arizona 6100 Series Flatbeds At the 2014 Canon Solutions America VIP Event in Vancouver this past April - a two-day event comprising Océ customers worldwide as well as press and analysts - Canon announced its launch of the Océ Arizona 6100 Series, a new flatbed-printer platform comprising the 6-color Océ Arizona 6160 XTS and the 7-color Océ Arizona 6170 XTS. Customers attended general informational sessions on Canon as well as formal introductions to the new machine, plus were taken on a tour of the Vancouver factory (where the Arizona printers are assembled), and provided with a variety of networking activities and more. The new printer series, designed as a dedicated flatbed system, features an extra-large 8 x 10-foot vacuum table with two independent printing zones, each with its own high-flow vacuum system, allowing for simultaneous printing as well as media loading/unloading. Hence, one board can be staged and ready while the other is being printed, enabling non-stop production; alternatively, the two zones can be combined into one to enable 8 x 10-foot prints. The printers can accommodate materials up to 2-in. thick. The new flatbeds also feature: * Approximately 27,000 piezoelectric nozzles in a seven-row printing carriage; * Print output at speeds up to 1668 sq ft/hr; * CMYKcm inkset on the 6160 XTS; CMYKcm + white on the 6170 XTS; * A newly designed Automated Printhead Maintenance System for automated, hands-free printhead cleaning; * Océ VariaDot printing technology as well as active pixel-placement compensation to help ensure accurate, uniform print geometry over the entire flatbed; The Arizona 6160 XTS is upgradeable to the 6170 XTS printer with the addition of one ink channel for white ink; both Arizona 6100 Series models will also support an additional ink channel for future development. A hardware/software interface allows for easy integration with third-party automation and workflow systems, Canon reports. The Océ Arizona 6100 Series models made their worldwide public debut at the recent FESPA show in Munich, Germany; the printers are scheduled to make their US debut later this year. 16,766 8 THE BIG PICTURE JUNE/JULY 2014 The number of visitors to the recently completed FESPA Digital show in Munich, the largest-ever number of visitors to the event in its eight-year history, show organizers report.
