Canon Océ Arizona 1200 Flatbed Printers Introduced For Commercial Printing Sectors
We’ve mentioned this a few times in our news updates. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) like to be in the news. One of the ways through which they do this is by launching new printer series containing models with specific features targeted at specific industries. An OEM that appears in the news at regular intervals is Canon. We last reported on Canon at the beginning of December because the OEM had launched 4 new Pixma G series printers. Before that, it was in October that we had reported on Canon when it had launched its fastest Océ ColorWave printers.
Seeing Canon’s history, it seems the OEM takes anything between 30 and 45 days to prepare its next appearance in the news. So, it’s not at all surprising that at the turn of this month, Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers were launched by the Japanese OEM. The Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printer series contains three printer models which are the Canon Océ Arizona 1240, Canon Océ Arizona 1260, and Canon Océ Arizona 1280. The new machines launched by Canon are aimed at various commercial industries such as photo lab, reprographics, specialty print, and sign and display printing service providers.
The Canon Océ Arizona series of printers have been around for some time now with these latest printer models being the fourth generation of this series. There are already more than 5,000 Canon Océ printers active all over the globe. Each of the three new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printer models is capable of churning out prints at a speed of 35 square metres in the Express Mode.
Moreover, these machines are available with two different flatbed sizes which span 1.25 metres x 2.5 metres and 2.5 metres x 3.08 metres. Along with this, a buyer will also have the option of incorporating equipment that can handle flexible medial rolls spanning 2.2 metres in width.
The print quality of these devices is also exceptional since each of them features Océ VariaDot level quality. Each Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printer model supports six different colours with the option of adding colours like white, light magenta pink, and light cyan. There are even seven options when it comes to the nozzle sizes. Available nozzle sizes range from 7 pl to 42 pl.
Canon chose to boost the registration process of the new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers as well by incorporating a system called the Active Pixel Placement. Active Pixel Placement allows the flatbed to be scanned by the printer so that ink deposits can be adjusted and refined. According to the company, because of this little boost, registration in the new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers is slightly more even when it comes heavy materials and oddly shaped media. Additionally, the vacuum system on these flatbed printers is also stronger and more accurate.
Furthermore, the new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers also incorporate other innovations. One of these features is the pneumatic media registration pins. The introduction of the pneumatic media registration pins means that when it comes to rigid media, the loading process becomes easier and more precise.
Another of these features is the ultraviolet lamp curing system which is far more flexible and versatile than previous variants. In fact, the ultraviolet lamp curing system in the new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers is actually cooler than its past brethren.
One more feature introduced by Canon counters the fact that many user simply forget to clean their print heads and nozzles regularly. This can lead to early breakdowns and problems in the printer. This feature is called the in situ automatic print head maintenance.
Apart from all the new innovative features, the new Canon Océ Arizona 1200 flatbed printers carry features that can be seen in the Canon 6100 series of printer models that were announced by the OEM in 2014.
7 New Printers and MFPs Introduced By Lexmark With Along With Claims of Fastest Print and Scan Speeds
Last time we spoke about Lexmark on this blog, we were reporting on rumours in the upper echelons of the print industry that Lexmark may be purchased by Konica Minolta. Despite those rumours, Lexmark has continued with the business of selling printers by launching 7 new printers and multifunction printers (MFPs).
The 7 new printers and MFPs launched by the OEM fall in its A4 smart MFPs and colour laser categories. Not only has the OEM launched these new printers and MFPs but also claimed that they are leaders in their respective classes with respect to their classes and categories. The newly launched machines include printers falling in the Lexmark CX800 series, the Lexmark CS800 series, the Lexmark CX700 series, and the Lexmark CS700 series.
Every new printer announced by Lexmark carries the Kofax Total Agility feature whose purpose is to enhance the devices’ omnichannel capture strategy. This, in turn, improves efficiency of the printing process in various ways. Every model in this new line also has a tablet like interface.
Amongst all the printer models being included in the new line, the highlight is the Lexmark CX860. The Lexmark CX860, according to the OEM, leads all A4 colour laser MFPs in the market when it comes to the number of flexible media supported, the input and output capacities, and even the toner capacity. As per Lexmark, the features in the CX860 rival the features typically available in A3 class printers.
Along with this new line of printer models, Lexmark also announced a new business process solution known as Kofax Onboarding Agility. Kofax Onboarding Agility, as the name suggests, improves the onboarding process for the printer users. It is, essentially, a smart process application solution framework that simplifies the entire process.
