New Océ Arizona 350 XT UV-curable Flatbed Printer for Huge, High Quality Prints

The award-winning Océ Arizona family of digital flatbed printers has expanded yet again with the introduction 
of the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer with a dramatically enlarged flatbed table. This latest model in the Océ Arizona 
family is capable of producing rigid prints as large as 98.4 by 120 inches. A White Ink Option and a Roll Media 
Option are also available. The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer will make its U.S. debut in Océ booth #4343 at the 
International Sign Expo, April 16-18 in Las Vegas.

Extra width increases rigid printing capacity
The extra width of the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer enables it to be used in a continuous imaging mode for rigid 
media up to 49.2 by 98.4 inches, or a standard 4- by 8-foot board. Two rigid boards of this size can be mounted 
on separate vacuum areas of the flatbed table. While one board is being printed, the other can be changed by 
the operator. Since the printer never has to stop printing for a media change, users can significantly increase 
their net print production on boards of this size.

With the Roll Media Option installed, users can print onto flexible media up to 87 inches wide. The media roll 
can be unloaded at any time without interrupting rigid printing, and there is no down time to reconfigure the 
system to change from one print mode to the other.  

These features were designed to deliver a true production printer regardless of media. With the Océ Arizona 
350 XT printer, digital print providers can offer complete visual communications packages on a wide variety of
media and be assured of high throughput, superior image quality and print consistency.

Production print speeds
The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer features production print speeds up to 248 square feet per hour on rigid media 
and up to 188 square feet per hour using the Roll Media Option. This enables users to print nearly sixty 4- by 
8-foot boards in a single eight-hour shift, or more than 1615 square feet of flexible media. 

A member of the award-winning Océ Arizona Series
Joining the world's best-selling UV curable, flatbed printer line, the new, larger Océ Arizona 350 XT printer 
supports all the upgrades and options available for the Océ Arizona Series including the White Ink Option, 
Roll Media Option and Static Suppression Option. When fully equipped, the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer can 
image on almost any rigid or flexible media used in the display graphics market in brilliant CMYK color plus 
white. It can produce a variety of visual communications from banners to backlits and foam-board to furniture. 

Additional features to popular Océ Arizona family
The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer adds an extra large table platform to the popular Océ Arizona family of UV 
curable flatbed printers. The other Océ Arizona models can print onto rigid media up to 49" wide x 98" long x 
1.89" thick. The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer uses four-color (CMYK) inks with a White Ink Option and prints 
at speeds of up to 239 square feet per hour. The Océ Arizona 250 GT printer uses four-color (CMYK) ink and 
prints at speeds of up to 172 square feet per hour. The Océ Arizona 200 GT printer also uses four-color (CMYK) 
ink and prints at speeds of up to 101 square feet per hour. 

Available options help customers grow their business
The Océ Arizona Series of printers offers a secure investment with upgrade paths and available options that 
can be added as business needs grow. All can be equipped with a Roll Media Option in the factory or in the 
field. The Océ Arizona 350 XT and the Océ Arizona 350 GT printers can be upgraded to include the White Ink 
Option in the factory or in the field. The Océ Arizona 200 GT printer – designed for light production environments 
can be upgraded to the Océ Arizona 250 GT version to take advantage of higher production speeds. All Océ 
Arizona Series printers use UV curable inks and Océ VariaDotTM imaging technology to deliver near-
photographic image quality for nearly any application. And they all share the same robust architecture and 
deliberate design that offer the Océ values of quality, reliability, productivity and user-friendliness. 

White ink expands capabilities
The available White Ink Option for the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer enables under-printing for non-white media 
or objects, over-printing for backlit applications on transparent media and printing white as a spot color. Under-
printing white ink provides a base for non-white surfaces upon which color can be added, giving users the 
ability to expand their range of offerings to include specialty applications. Over-printing white ink provides a 
diffusion layer for backlit applications that will be viewed from the unprinted side, enabling users to produce 
high quality backlit images for point-of-purchase applications. The ability to also print white ink as a spot color 
enables white features of images to be highlighted for greater effect.

Opportunities for applications that command premium prices
The flatbed table on the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer is so big, users can print on oversized items such as 
garage doors. It can also print on irregularly shaped or non-square items, heavy substrates such as glass, or 
materials that have an uneven surface such as wood. This is an advantage over competitive rigid-capable 
printers that use belt or friction-based media feed systems as they can only print on square-cornered, lightweight 
materials of uniform thickness. The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer, along with the White Ink Option, opens the 
printing possibilities to more exotic applications that command premium prices. 

The Roll Media Option gives customers the ability to print onto flexible media including vinyl, self-adhesive vinyl, 
scrim banner, paper and blue backed paper without compromising the rigid printing workflow. The media roll 
can be unloaded at any time without interrupting rigid printing, and there is no down time to reconfigure the 
system to change from one print mode to the other.

Beyond display graphics applications
The Océ Arizona 350 XT printer is ideal for producing a wide variety of display graphics such as event graphics, 
point-of-purchase displays, limited-term signage, banners, backlit and reflective rigid displays, transit advertising, 
and directional signage. But because of its ability to print on a range of materials not predetermined simply by 
“square, flat and thin” and its support of white ink, the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer can produce applications 
beyond the norm including custom furniture, glasswork, fixture enhancement, fine art, or nearly anything that 
the imagination can conceive.
