Canon Solutions America Hosts 2014 Anniversary Event

Canon Solutions America, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced the conclusion of the company’s inaugural Anniversary Event, 
held February 3-5, commemorating the first year as Canon Solutions America after the successful integration of Canon Business Solutions and Océ 
North America. 

Hosting the event in Delray Beach, FL, Canon Solutions America invited esteemed industry pundits from around the country for a comprehensive look 
into the valued relationship between the company and its customers. A relationship that helped stabilize Canon Solutions America during its extensive 
and challenging transition into one unified company.

“We are extremely thankful for the earnest efforts made by so many throughout our company and the support we received from our customers during 
the integration period,” said Toyo Kuwamura, president and CEO of Canon Solutions America. “This event helped celebrate the unique relationship our 
company shares with each of its customers as we continue our goal to meet their every need in the evolving market.”

During the three-day event, guests were invited to attend a series of presentations given by executive leaders from both Canon Solutions America and 
Canon U.S.A. Not only did the presentations provide attendees with the opportunity to hear updates and developments on various divisions within 
each company, but also a chance to see first-hand how key leadership in Canon Solutions America is building relationships with customers with an 
innovative and dedicated approach. One open panel discussion gave guests a chance to ask top executives important questions regarding major 
initiatives for Canon Solutions America and Canon U.S.A. throughout 2014. Another panel offered invitees an opportunity to discuss the future of the 
industry with select influential customers – Michael McCombs, senior vice president of Operations for RevSpring; Thomas Harter, president of 
Microdynamics Group; Steven Strooh, vice president of Beeline and Blue; and John Zulli, executive vice president of Operations North America at 
ARC. Said Mr. Zulli, "It was my pleasure to participate in the Canon Solutions America customer panel, to share my experience of working with the 
Canon Solutions America team. At ARC Document solutions, we do not consider Canon Solutions America a vendor, we consider them a partner, 
helping us to grow our business.”

“Without our customers what would we be? It is our job to ensure their success and maintain a partnership that benefits both parties,” said Kuwamura. 
“We wanted this event to focus on the voice of the customer and how Canon Solutions America is stronger than ever because of our commitment, as 
a unified company, to improving the efficiency of our vast customer base.” 

Several items of interest included the announcement by the Production Print division of new user groups, including the Digital Print Advisory Council 
(DPAC) and the User Group Steering Committee. Also of note was the company’s commitment to advancements in media and substrates. The Large 
Format division announced the installation of several ColorWave 900s, for which they are getting phenomenal feedback from customers.

One highlight of the first annual Anniversary Event was a visit to the Canon Solutions America Customer Experience Center in Boca Raton. Here, guests 
enjoyed the privilege of experiencing cutting-edge facilities containing many of Canon Solutions America’s top products, while gaining further insight 
into the company’s vast production and solutions portfolios. 

“The event was seen as a great success,” said Kuwamura. “We were honored to host a group of highly respected guests that were given the opportunity 
to see Canon Solutions America in a way they might never have experienced before. Above all, they saw our commitment to sustaining our relationship 
with the best customers in the industry.”

Canon Wins Three SGIA 2013 Product of the Year Awards

Canon Solutions America, Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., announced today that three of the newest Océ Arizona® Series printer models were given 
the SGIA Product of the Year Award, marking the seventh year in a row that an Océ Arizona Series printer has been honored with this award since the 
product line began shipping in 2007. The award was presented at the Specialty Graphic & Imaging Association’s (SGIA) annual convention and exposition 
held October 23-25 in Orlando, FL. 

The Océ Arizona Series printers won in the following categories:

Océ Arizona 640 GT, Flatbed Rigid Substrate UV (<$200K MSRP)
Océ Arizona 660 GT, Flatbed Rigid Substrate UV (>$200K MSRP)
Océ Arizona 660 XT, Flatbed Rigid Substrate White ink UV (>$200K MSRP)
 
The Product of the Year Awards compare output from competing devices using a common test file designed by SGIA. The prints are reviewed by a panel 
of judges, each with a background and expertise in digital printing and imaging. The judges look for color appeal, detail and tonality, and the output is 
also judged on how closely it matches the test print.

The entry image was processed using ONYX® ThriveTM Océ Edition print workflow software, a scalable print production solution based on Adobe® PDF 
Print Engine technology. ONYX Thrive software manages the wide format print production workflow process offering print service providers 
accurate, predictable, high quality printing results, and reducing costly errors. 

Latest Members of the Océ Arizona Series Family 

The Océ Arizona 600 Series printers made their worldwide debut earlier this year at FESPA in London and the first US showing at the recent PRINT 13 
held September 8-12 in Chicago, IL. The Océ Arizona 600 Series offers greater application versatility and production efficiencies than the Océ Arizona 
550 Series it now replaces. Many new features that were originally introduced in the Océ Arizona 400 Series have been implemented in the Océ Arizona 
600 Series: 

4 or 6 independent ink channels with support for varnish, double-opacity white ink printing, or additional cyan and magenta channels for higher print quality 
at faster speeds.

Océ PlotWave 340/360 Large Format Printing System

Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A, announced today the launch of its new Océ PlotWave® 340 and Océ 
PlotWave® 360 monochrome printing systems. The Océ PlotWave® 340/360 offers a new standard in user interaction and cloud integration for 
technical users to print, copy and scan low volumes of technical documents. This fast and flexible wide format system helps businesses save time 
and money on their document production.

Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Large Format Systems, Canon Solutions America says, “This new system was developed to address the practical needs of 
technical users who are working on projects with other parties via online portals or the cloud and require more flexibility from their multifunctional printing 
system. The Océ PlotWave 340/360 provides superior ease-of-use via a multi-touch panel; affording users the flexibility of the mobile and handheld 
technologies they are accustomed to using.”

Printing is as Easy as Using a Tablet 

Technical users are accustomed to handling their business with the latest tablet and mobile technologies. The new Océ ClearConnect multi-touch user 
panel enables users to pan, zoom, swipe and spread; making printing as easy and clear as using a tablet. Thanks to the intuitive gestured controlled 
touch software, users are able to print faster and can see the orientation of documents with a live preview while scanning/copying to help avoid costly 
errors. They can pull up a document, zoom it out and pan to different areas to check critical details. The easy shortcuts save users valuable time when 
printing.

Printing and Scanning in the Cloud and Everywhere Else

Technical users working via project portals or in the cloud can access documents directly at the printer using the Océ ClearConnect multi-touch panel. 
Files can be pulled to the printer from cloud-enabled workflows and scanned to the cloud of choice. This simplifies document workflows with other 
project members. In addition to the cloud, users can browse files and print them from a USB stick or network location. If a file is on a mobile phone, 
users can access the Océ PlotWave 340/360 printer and print via the Océ Publisher Mobile App through an existing WiFi. Or they can print from their 
desktop PC via Océ Publisher Select to manage more complex document sets.

Print More Productively

Time is of the essence for most organizations. With its powerful Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Standard 7 controller, technical users can print, copy 
and scan without sacrificing productivity. The Océ PlotWave 340/360 can print up to 4/6 D-size plots in one minute, with virtually no warm-up time thanks 
to Océ Radiant Fusing technology. This speed means that users can go from cold click to print in hand in less than 40 seconds, compared to a slow 
four minutes with conventional printers. It is designed for fast file processing and can handle all file formats – a HP-GL/2, PDF, DWF, JPEG and many 
more – and large files without sacrificing speed. True concurrent operation means the scanner can be used for copying or scanning while printing is 
taking place. This Eco-friendly fusing method not only provides instant-on machine availability, but also consumes less energy and emits less noise and 
ozone when compared to other fusing methods.

To help reduce costly mistakes, the new Océ Wide-format Printer Driver 2.0 for Windows also supports this system. Its straightforward design makes it 
much easier to print complex drawings correctly the first time. It includes a "What You See is What You Print" preview that clearly highlights potential 
errors that might occur with a selection. This includes misplaced fold lines or an error in document size. Users can correct their selection and avoid 
costly mistakes and time loss.

Océ Arizona 600 Series UV Flatbed Printers Offer High Capacity

Canon Solutions America, Inc. (CSA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., today announced the new Océ Arizona® 600 Series UV flatbed printers 
that are designed to deliver high total and peak production capacity while maintaining the uncompromising print quality favored by Océ Arizona Series customers. 

Four models are available:
•	Océ Arizona 640 GT:  four independent ink channels, CMYK printing, standard table size
•	Océ Arizona 640 XT:  four independent ink channels, CMYK printing, extra-large table size
•	Océ Arizona 660 GT:  six independent ink channels, multiple print configurations, standard table size
•	Océ Arizona 660 XT:  six independent ink channels, multiple print configurations, extra-large table size

Six-channel models offer versatility for higher production capacity or for new applications
Océ Arizona 660 models feature six independent ink channels that can be configured to suit the needs of the professional print provider. These models can 
be configured for maximum productivity or optimized White Ink utility; or with both White Ink and Varnish for maximum versatility. 

CM2 [C-M-squared] for productivity
For those shops that focus on retail signage or other standard graphics applications and require the highest throughput, channels five and six can be 
configured to enhance print speed by adding extra cyan and magenta nozzle capacity. Called CM2 [C-M-squared], this innovation results in Production 
prints with uniformity and smoothness comparable to those produced in Quality mode. Users can take advantage of this improved print quality to realize 
higher net productivity, since more demanding print jobs can now be printed in faster print modes. CM2-configured printers also feature Production-
Squared print mode with print speeds of more than 495 square feet per hour – nearly 25 percent faster than Production mode. CM2 printing offers 
higher quality in all the Production print modes and faster printing speeds. 
 
White Ink and Varnish for versatility
For those print providers that focus more on specialty applications, two other configurations for channels five and six are available to expand the 
application range:
•	White+Varnish:  Using white ink, print service providers can produce exceptional quality prints on a variety of non-white substrates – including backlit 
prints – that can command premium prices. Varnish can be used as a decorative element for attention-getting results at premium prices. These two 
features can be combined to create truly unique applications for sign and display or fine art applications. 
•	Double-opacity White:  Alternatively, when not required for use in printing varnish, the sixth channel can be used as an additional white ink channel to 
deliver double the opacity in a single printing pass for higher productivity when printing white ink jobs on non-white media or objects. This is particularly 
beneficial for printing on unusual media and for industrial applications. 

Additional features improve productivity
Océ Arizona 600 Series printers represent the latest generation in this market-leading product family. Featuring award-winning Océ VariaDot® imaging 
technology that delivers true grayscale tonal reproduction, these models include the following new features:
•	Active pixel placement compensation for optimum image sharpness, density and uniformity over the entire print area – both flatbed or across the Roll 
Media Option.
•	Precise vacuum system, configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphic arts media. There are six vacuum zones on the Océ Arizona 600 Series 
GT models and seven on the Océ Arizona 600 Series XT models. These zones have been configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphics 
arts media to help reduce or even eliminate manual masking, thereby decreasing operator intervention and increasing productivity.
•	Batch mode operation for streamlined, unattended production of complex, many-layered print jobs that require multiple prints on a single piece of media 
to achieve a specialized result. Batch mode can also be used to produce collated sets of prints (e.g. 50 sets of:  30” x 48” backlit acrylic, 28” x 40” 
poster, 78” x 158” banner, etc.) for easy fulfillment.

Upgrade path available
The Océ Arizona 600 Series printer family is designed to grow with a print service provider’s business. Owners can upgrade  at any time to add more 
application versatility or improve productivity. An Océ Arizona 640 can be upgraded to an Océ Arizona 660 to add six-channel capability, for 
CM2, White+Varnish, or Double-Opacity White printing.

Meet nearly any application need
Océ Arizona 600 Series GT models feature the standard table size of 49.2 by 98.4 inches, and Océ Arizona 600 Series XT printer offers the extra large table 
size of 98.4 by 120 inches. Both can print on rigid media up to 2.0 inches thick. A Roll Media Option is available for all models to print on flexible media up 
to 86.6 inches wide. Just like the ink channel upgrade mentioned previously, owners can also upgrade their Océ Arizona flatbed at any time with the 
addition of the Roll Media Option.

If a job can be printed digitally, it likely can be produced on an Océ Arizona printer. With the ability to print on a wide variety of media and objects, print 
service providers can capture revenue from applications ranging from standard sign and display (point-of-purchase displays, retail signage, backlit signs) 
to specialty and industrial applications where the decorated substrate is not meant primarily for display purposes (e.g. package prototyping, short-run 
packaging, wallpaper and interior decoration, and consumer product decoration). With one Océ Arizona printer, full mixed-media campaigns can be 
produced including rigid displays, banners, window cling, backlits, etc., to service a range of customer needs for maximum revenue.

Highly acclaimed UV flatbed printer series
All Océ Arizona Series printers – including the new Océ Arizona 600 Series – share the same award-winning image quality and robust architecture, offering 
our values of quality, reliability, productivity and user-friendliness. In all, Océ Arizona Series UV flatbed printers have earned more than 30 industry awards 
to date from organizations throughout the world.

Canon Solutions America Helps AEC Professionals Select the Best Approach for Printing Large Format Technical Documents

A key to success for any business, regardless of size, is effective control over expenses. In many AEC firms, one area that often gets overlooked – 
and oversimplified – is the cost to print large format technical documents. The decision to print in-house or outsource is one that should be based 
on more than just the cost of the print itself.

Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A, explores critical decision factors and cost considerations for selecting 
the best approach to printing large format technical documents. Ultimately helping AEC firms answer the question: should you bring printing in-
house or outsource?

Cost Considerations: Outsourced Printing

Beyond simply looking at document costs – which can be as high as $4.50/page for a D-sized black and white document – AEC firms should consider 
these key cost components of outsourced printing.

Shipping: Depending on how much printing is outsourced, these charges can easily be in the hundreds if not thousands of dollars over the course of 
a year. Shipping charges can also be doubled if documents are sent back to the printer for copying.
Waste: Extra prints that are ordered in addition to the required document quantities many times end up as waste. While ordering more documents may 
lead to a lower document cost per square foot, the savings are generally negated if the prints end up as waste. In addition, wasted documents are 
contrary to a company’s sustainability efforts. 
Employee Time: Employees must take the time to digitally prepare documents to be sent to the outsourced printer either by CD or uploaded to the 
vendor’s ftp site. These tasks can prevent employees from spending time on more productive jobs. 

The pros of outsourced printing include no device acquisition or maintenance costs, which can free up capital for other areas of the business. 
However, outsourced printing tends to cost more in general due to: smaller print quantities, payments to third-party vendors and document shipping 
costs. In addition, managing vendors can be complicated and drain internal resources. And, if scanning or copying is required, this can lead to 
additional costs. 

Cost Considerations: In-House Printing

While the cost of documents printed in-house are generally less than outsourced print jobs, there are operational and machine acquisition costs that 
factor into the overall cost to bring printing in-house. 

Device Acquisition: AEC firms should evaluate which acquisition model is right for their business, based on their budget and print volumes. This includes: 
outright purchase, lease or cost per copy. 
Supplies: The type of printer and volumes printed can cause black and white toner and color ink costs vary. To understand the true cost of supplies – 
including paper, inks or toner – an organization should talk to its hardware provider and get the exact cost; including the expected yields of the 
consumables. 
Labor: In low volume office environments each user submits and retrieves his or her own prints. For this reason, the printer must be easy to use for the 
novice, walk-up user. 
Maintenance: This cost is generally minimal for low volume environments and can be factored into a monthly lease agreement. A cost per print 
acquisition model can also keep costs low; organizations only pay for what they print and there is usually a low monthly fixed billing amount. 

In general, in-house printing tends to cost less because the organization is able to control what is printed, how it’s printed and how much is printed. 
Large format documents are mission critical to an AEC organization, so control over quality is very important and, sometimes, that quality assurance 
can only be done in house. In-house printing also affords flexibility and the ability to meet demanding deadlines that outsourced printing simply 
cannot. Of course, this all comes at a cost: the organization must purchase or lease and maintain the device, purchase supplies, implement 
future technology upgrades and dedicate facility space to the device. 

The bottom line: there is no one-size-fits-all approach to printing in-house or outsourcing. But, an AEC firm can make an informed decision – and the 
best one for the organization – by considering all of the key cost components, not just print cost, as well as the pros and cons of each approach.

Canon Solutions America Provides Guidance to the Construction Industry

Industry estimates claim that 10-30% of all building project costs can be attributed to waste, such as wasted labor time, wasted materials, inaccurate 
estimates, field change orders and unnecessary litigation1. However, there is an effective solution to this problem that is often overlooked by 
construction industry professionals - the use of color in construction documents.

Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A, Inc., outlines below how a simple change to color construction documents 
can benefit construction industry professionals in three critical areas.

Operating Costs – Requests for Information (RFI) Management
According to a report by the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), general contractors waste approximately $0.12 per square foot 
and $.016 per square foot during the design and construction phases of building, respectively, with RFI management2. However, construction 
workflows that leverage color throughout the design and construction phases can reduce costs for traditional design-bid-build projects. 

The improvements in collaboration gained through reduced RFIs and change orders actually outweigh the cost of color printing. Each incremental 
dollar invested in color printing can yield $4 in savings for a given project. These savings are a direct result of the use of higher-quality color 
construction documentation during the estimation, bidding and construction phases of building where collaboration involves multiple stakeholders.

Project Costs – Estimation Cost Contingencies 
General contractors typically enter the building project well after the project owner has approved the building designs. This often results in built-in 
contingency costs by contractors and subcontractors to mitigate the risk of insufficient design details. In fact, for moderately complex building 
projects, contingencies of 10 to 20 percent are considered common without the use of color 2D construction documents3.  It stands to reason that 
if contingencies could be reduced – by improving the speed and accuracy of estimating – general contractors would have an opportunity to win more 
business and increase their revenues. 

By incorporating color construction documentation during the planning and bidding phase of a project, the total number of estimation cost contingencies 
can be reduced.  Color allows for more accurate coordination and compliance review, as well as savings from more accurate coordination of services 
(i.e. mechanical, electrical and plumbing). Providing clear, color-coded construction drawings to subcontractors can also result in more accurate job 
costing and lower bids by subcontractors. 

Project Turn-Around Time – Shorter Project Schedules Delivered Under Budget 
Incorporating more accurate color construction documentation can help to ensure that communication between all stakeholders is improved, while 
also increasing value to the owner, reducing waste and maximizing efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication and construction. Additionally, 
the ability to accelerate project schedules through improved communication helps to reduce errors and omissions, enabling more continuous 
throughput of subcontractors and supplier assignments. Depending on the project, general contractors stand to benefit financially through project 
bonuses for completing project milestones early or under budget. 

Applying color construction documents to design-bid-build projects presents a significant near-term opportunity for improving project collaboration and 
reducing project-related waste. Construction industry professionals also stand to achieve quantifiable savings and grow their revenues by reducing 
RFIs, estimating contingencies and project schedules by making a change to color.

Océ Completes the Océ Arizona 400 UV Flatbed Printer Series with Four New Models

Océ, a Canon Group Company and international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, today announced four new 
models in the Océ Arizona® 400 Series of UV flatbed printers:  Océ Arizona 460 GT, Océ Arizona 460 XT, Océ Arizona 440 GT and Océ Arizona 
440 XT printers. Joining the Océ Arizona 480 GT and Océ Arizona 480 XT models introduced in October 2012, these additional models complete 
the Océ Arizona 400 Series of next-generation UV flatbed printers that feature exceptional quality, improved productivity, application versatility and 
the ability to upgrade as business grows.

The “right fit” for every customer
The Océ Arizona 400 Series includes six different UV flatbed printers featuring four, six or eight independent ink channels in two different flatbed sizes, 
offering a range of applications capabilities and capacity to suit nearly any mid-volume print service provider. And as a provider’s needs change, an 
upgrade path is available to ensure that the investment in an Océ Arizona 400 Series printer is protected from obsolescence.

Superior image quality supported by advanced technologies
Océ VariaDot® imaging technology is the key to the award-winning image quality of every Océ Arizona printer. Included in these new models, Océ 
VariaDot imaging technology can produce near-photographic quality with sharpness equivalent to 1,440 dpi or higher. Text as small as 2 pt. is 
perfectly legible, even when reverse-printed (white ink on a black field). 

Active Pixel Placement Compensation assures image sharpness, density and uniformity, wherever it is printed on the flatbed or on the Roll Media Option. 
This feature is standard on all Océ Arizona 400 Series printers.

Reduced operator intervention equals improved productivity
A variable vacuum system featuring six vacuum zones on the Océ Arizona 400 Series GT models – seven on Océ Arizona 400 Series XT models – is 
configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphics arts media to reduce or eliminate manual masking thereby decreasing operator 
intervention and increasing productivity.

A batch mode supports complex, multi-layered jobs – those requiring multiple passes for specialty applications. These jobs can now be streamlined using 
the new batch mode tools, eliminating operator intervention between operations. Included on all Océ Arizona 400 Series models, batch mode can 
also be used to produce sets of prints sequentially for easy collation and fulfillment.

Choose the model that suits today’s printing needs …
Océ Arizona 460 GT and Océ Arizona 460 XT models include six independent ink channels with the first four configured for standard CMYK printing. 
Channels five and six can be configured in two ways that offer flexibility to meet the demands of various jobs:

•	Varnish + White:  Using white ink, print service providers can produce exceptional quality prints on a variety of non-white substrates – including backlit 
prints – that can command premium prices. Varnish can be used as a spot or flood decorative element for attention-getting results at high-value prices. 

•	Double-White:  Alternatively, when not required for use in printing varnish, the sixth channel can be used as an additional white ink channel to provide 
double the opacity in a single printing pass for higher productivity when printing white ink jobs. This is particularly beneficial for backlit and industrial 
applications. 

Print service providers can use these two channels in whichever configuration best suits their needs, changing from Varnish + White to Double-White 
(and vice versa) as needed.

Océ Arizona 440 GT and Océ Arizona 440 XT models include CMYK ink channels only. This is ideal for those shops that do not initially need the 
capacity for Varnish or White Ink printing or already have that capability elsewhere but just need to increase CMYK capacity.

… and be assured of an upgrade path as business grows
The Océ Arizona 400 Series printer family is designed to grow with a print service provider’s business. Owners can upgrade at any time to add more 
application versatility and improve productivity. The following upgrades are available :
•	Océ Arizona 440 to Océ Arizona 460 adds Varnish + White or Double-White capability
•	Océ Arizona 460 to Océ Arizona 480 adds CM2 capability
•	Océ Arizona 440 to Océ Arizona 480 adds Varnish + White or Double-White capability plus CM2 capability

CM2 printing adds productivity while maintaining exceptional image quality
The last two ink channels included on Océ Arizona 480 models are used to enhance both print quality – beyond the award-winning level already 
available in every Océ Arizona printer – and print speed by adding extra cyan and magenta nozzle capacity. Called CM2 [C-M-squared], the additional 
cyan and magenta nozzle capacity offers Production print modes that rival the slower Quality-oriented modes in terms of sharpness, uniformity and 
smoothness. Users can take advantage of this improved print quality to realize higher net productivity since more demanding jobs can now be 
printed in the faster print modes.

Meet nearly any application need
The Océ Arizona 400 GT models offer the standard table size of 1.25 by 2.5 meters (49.2 by 98.4 inches) and the Océ Arizona 400 XT models offer the 
extra large table size of 2.5 by 3.05 meters (98.4 by 120 inches). Both can print on rigid media up to 50.8 mm (2.0 inches) thick. A Roll Media Option is 
available for both models to print on flexible media up to 2.2 meters (86.6 inches) wide.

All Océ Arizona 400 Series printers are suitable for a variety of display graphics applications including POP/POS, retail signage, backlit images, 
exhibition graphics, etc. They can also be used for specialty applications where the decorated substrate is not meant primarily for display 
purposes (e.g. package prototyping, short-run packaging, wallpaper and interior decoration, and consumer product decoration).

·         GIS (Mapping)

The result of more than three years of joint engineering and product development between Océ and Memjet, Velocity offers game-changing digital 
technology that prints up to 15 times faster than conventional aqueous inkjet systems – speeds never believed possible for large format applications. 

Professional print providers can use this technology to enter new markets, expand their services and help generate new revenues by producing high 
volumes of posters, maps and architectural plans with unmatched productivity compared to conventional inkjet solutions. To keep up with the demand 
for fresh, last-minute information, retail posters can now be printed with variable content much faster and more productively than with inkjet systems.

Breakthrough Productivity for Large Format, Digital Color Printing
Velocity combines Océ’s expertise in productive printing and workflow for large format environments with Memjet’s high-speed, digital color printing 
technology. Key features of Velocity include:

·         Print up to 500 3’x4’ prints per hour stacked and cut to size;

·         Six integrated media rolls up to 42” wide – 13,650 square feet of online capacity;

·         Dual tray integrated capacity stacker

Imagine printing 100 36”x48” (E-size) posters in just 12 minutes on Velocity – versus 3 hours on a traditional inkjet system. Or printing 250 E-size posters 
on Velocity in the 20-30 minutes it takes to set up an offset run, with the added benefit of variable content. Now, print providers have a powerful digital 
option for large format, high volume color printing that can help them enter new markets, expand their services and generate new revenues.

Océ’s Award-Winning Productivity and Workflow Capabilities Combined with Memjet’s High-Speed, Color Printing Technology

“Velocity is the result of our collaborative approach to innovation. The market has long waited for a productive color solution for the high volume segment,” 
said Erik van Eldik, Vice President Wide Format Printing Systems at Océ-Technologies B.V. “We selected Memjet as a technology partner because of the 
value that their impressive technology adds to the highly regarded productivity and reliability of our wide format systems. We focused on complementing 
our innovation assets and know-how with Memjet technology to create a product that the market was demanding as quickly as possible.”

Velocity uses the highly accurate, six-roll media input technology from the successful Océ ColorWave® 650 printer. The media input automatically 
switches between different rolls and media widths, providing a total capacity of 13,650 square feet feet. The Océ Double Decker Pro stacker, currently 
available on the Océ PlotWave® 900 printer, is used to deliver the highest possible productivity. It has a dual tray system which allows unloading and 
printing to occur at the same time, which effectively allows the system to print 13,650 square feet of output without interruption. The Velocity concept 
features an intuitive touch screen control panel from the Océ VarioPrint® 6000 series printer. It uses the Océ PowerM® controller, color image 
processing and workflow components of the Océ ColorWave 650 family to further enhance and accelerate production. This concept also 
supports a true Adobe® PDF workflow.

Memjet delivers an entirely new category of technology that makes possible high-quality color printing at never-before seen speeds and affordability. 
Memjet does this by putting more than 70,000 ink nozzles on a single printhead – 17 times the density of traditional inkjet printheads. Memjet’s 
printhead is 8.77 inches wide. The design allows Memjet-powered printers to deliver more than 700 million drops of ink per second on a page. 
Memjet wide format technology combines five Memjet printheads to operate as one, firing more than 3 billion drops of ink per second. 

Tim Greene of InfoTrends commented, “Velocity takes advantage of Océ's strengths such as paper handling for production environments, production 
workflow in the technical market and controller technology, and wraps them around Memjet's revolutionary technology and components. A 
partnership of this magnitude is very important to the global wide format market.  It is set to change the competitive landscape overnight and how 
super-fast wide format print can -- and will -- be leveraged by printers and their customers.”

Océ Arizona 480 UV Flatbed Printers Offer Expanded Application Versatility

Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, today announced the new 
Océ Arizona® 480 GT and Océ Arizona 480 XT printers that feature remarkable application versatility and improved productivity while maintaining 
the uncompromising quality favored by Océ Arizona Series customers. The Océ Arizona 480 GT printer will make its worldwide debut in Océ booth 
#435 at the Specialty Graphic and Imaging Association (SGIA) annual exhibition taking place from October 18-20, 2012 in Las Vegas.

Production efficiencies, application versatility are keys to growth
In a recent SGIA survey , the Graphics & Sign Community was polled to determine paths for business growth. The survey found that “in an effort to grow, 
even in an uncertain economy, sign and graphics companies are focusing on production efficiencies.” In addition, application versatility is seen as a 
key element to industry expansion. The report summary continues, “the most common method for graphics and sign companies to achieve projected 
growth is through market expansion, either within existing markets, or by developing new markets.” The new Océ Arizona 480 Series printers include 
features designed to increase throughput and broaden the range of applications that can be offered by print service providers.

Serious tools for serious craftsmen
Creative professionals dedicated to the production of high quality sign and display applications demand high quality tools. The Océ Arizona 
480 printers represent the latest generation in this market-leading product family. Featuring the same award-winning Océ VariaDot® imaging 
technology as in every Océ Arizona printer, these models offer even more application versatility and production efficiencies. New features include:
•	Eight independent ink channels with support for varnish or double-opacity white ink printing, including additional cyan and magenta channels 
for higher print quality at faster speeds.
•	Active pixel placement compensation for optimum image sharpness, density and uniformity over the entire printing area - both flatbed or across 
the Roll Media Option.
•	Precise vacuum system, configured to match the majority of standard-sized graphic arts media.
•	Batch mode operation for streamlining multi-layered jobs or facilitating set collation.

Eight independent ink channels for application flexibility, increased productivity
Both Océ Arizona 480 GT and Océ Arizona 480 XT models include eight independent ink channels with the first four configured for standard CMYK 
printing. Channels five and six can be configured in two ways that offer flexibility to meet the demands of various jobs:
•	Varnish + White:  Using white ink, print service providers can produce exceptional quality prints on a variety of non-white substrates – including 
backlit prints – that can command premium prices. Varnish can be used as a ‘spot’ (targeted) or ‘flood’ (overall) decorative element for attention-
getting results at premium prices. These two features can be combined to create truly unique applications for sign and display or fine art applications. 
•	Double-White:  Alternatively, when not required for use in printing varnish, the sixth channel can be used as an additional white ink channel to 
provide double the opacity in a single printing pass for higher productivity when printing white ink jobs. This is particularly beneficial for backlit 
and industrial applications. 

Print service providers can use these two channels in whichever configuration best suits their needs, changing from varnish + white to double-white 
(and vice versa) on demand.

Channels seven and eight are used to enhance both print quality - beyond the level already available in every Océ Arizona printer - and print speed by 
adding extra cyan and magenta nozzle capacity. Called CM2 [C-M-squared], the additional cyan and magenta nozzle capacity offers Production print 
modes that rival the slower Quality-oriented modes in terms of sharpness, uniformity and smoothness. Users can take advantage of this improved 
print quality to realize higher net productivity since more demanding jobs can now be printed in the faster print modes. The additional nozzle capacity 
over existing Océ Arizona models  also enables a Production print mode that is nearly 25% faster than normal Production mode on models not 
equipped with CM2 capability. In short, CM2 printing offers higher quality at faster speeds.

Active pixel placement compensation for assured image sharpness
Océ Arizona 480 GT and Océ Arizona 480 XT models use Océ’s new active pixel placement compensation to assure image sharpness, density and 
uniformity, whether it is printed on the flatbed or on the Roll Media Option. This is achieved by dynamically adjusting the location of individual pixels to 
account for localized variations in flatbed or platen height.

Precise vacuum system
There are six vacuum zones on the Océ Arizona 480 GT printer and seven on the Océ Arizona 480 XT printer. These zones have been configured to 
match the majority of standard-sized graphic arts media to reduce or eliminate manual masking, thereby decreasing operator intervention and 
increasing productivity.

Batch mode
Complex, multi-layered jobs – those requiring multiple passes to achieve the desired results – can now be streamlined using the new batch mode tools, 
reducing operator intervention. Batch mode can also be used to produce sets of prints (e.g. 50 items on 36” x 48” media and 30 items on 4’ x 8’ 
media sequentially for easy collation and fulfillment.

Meet nearly any application need
The Océ Arizona 480 GT printer offers the standard table size of 49.2 by 98.4 inches and the Océ Arizona 480 XT printer offers the extra large table 
size of 98.4 by 120 inches. Both can print on rigid media up to 2.0 inches thick. A Roll Media Option is available for both models to print on flexible 
media up to 86.6 inches  wide.

With print speeds of up to 272 square feet per hour of high quality production capacity over the broadest range of media and applications, 
graphics professionals needing to print 53,800-107,600 square feet per year will find it to be the right tool for the job. 

If a job can be printed digitally, it most likely can be produced on an Océ Arizona 480 model printer. With the ability to print on a wide variety of media 
and objects, print service providers can capture revenue from applications ranging from standard sign and display (POP, retail signage, backlit signs) 
to specialty and industrial applications where the decorated substrate is not meant primarily for display purposes (e.g. package prototyping, short-run 
packaging, wallpaper and interior decoration, and consumer product decoration). 

With one Océ Arizona 480 model printer, full mixed-media campaigns can be produced including rigid displays, banners, window cling, backlits, etc., to 
service a range of customer needs for maximum revenue.

Océ Outlines Considerations When Selecting a Wide Format Inkjet Printer

Wide format inkjet printers enable users to print bigger printouts than the standard media sizes and can easily produce images of startlingly vivid colors, 
sharp lines and precise details – something many traditional printing presses cannot. These devices range from small inexpensive consumer models to 
large, more expensive machines used in a business environment and provide a variety of options and capabilities. Applications include full-color 
presentations, signage, posters, banners, CAD drawings and GIS maps. 

When selecting a wide format inkjet printer, it is important to select the equipment that is best suited to your business’s specific needs and goals. Océ, 
a Canon Group company and an international leader in digital document management, outlines below how to determine which inkjet printing solution is 
right for you. 

The Three Main Print Technologies Used in Inkjet Printers

Wide format inkjet printers are constructed with a printhead and a series of nozzles to spray drops of ink onto paper. There are three main print 
technologies found in inkjet printers.

·         Aqueous: These thermal inkjet printers use a water-based ink and deliver speed, quality, reliability and versatility for indoor printing applications, 
such as signage, backlit displays and photography.

·         Solvent: These printers use inks that are not water-based. For example, piezo inkjet printer inks use petroleum or a petroleum by-product 
such as acetone as its carrier liquid. The resulting prints are waterproof and durable – often used for heavy graphics, banners and outdoor use. 

·         U/V: Some piezo inkjet printers use inks that are UV-curable (i.e. the ink dries when exposed to UV light). The resulting prints are waterproof, 
embossed and vibrant. The ink can be used to print on plastics and other non-porous substrates. 

Selecting a Wide Format Inkjet Printer

While there are a variety of devices available, your workflow and desired output will determine which wide format inkjet printer is right for you. In order to 
best make this decision, consider the following:

Output size: Wide format inkjet printers have larger maximum widths than standard printers – ranging from a width of 14” to 60”, with almost unlimited 
maximum lengths. While 36-inches is typically the maximum width required for CAD drawings, some users may need to produce paper documents in a 
44” width. 
 
Application quality: If the documents being produced are intricate with fine lines or small fonts, then you will require a printing system that can accurately 
and reliably produce every detail, with clarity. While 300 dots per inch (dpi) and 600 dpi are fine for most text-only documents, a higher resolution of at 
least 600 x 1200 dpi is desirable for graphics and photo applications. 

Media handling: If you use various sizes or types of media, it is important to be able to access multiple media rolls simultaneously. Evaluate how easy it is to 
load media. Some printers offer the ability to change one roll of media while printing on another. Also important is how and where the printer outputs the 
work after printing – in a basket or catch bin or collated and stacked. The capability you need is a function of the amount of printing you do and how 
many users are sending files to the same printer.

·         Print volume & workgroup productivity: If your site produces a large volume of prints or scans, make sure the printer you choose can keep up with 
your high volume workflow. With the advent of larger workgroups, older printing systems can become a bottleneck that can impede productivity. 
Waiting for large files to process and print, managing the print queue, preventing misprints, replacing consumables, tracking costs and protecting 
sensitive documents are issues that may arise as more people use the printer. Make sure the wide format inkjet printer you choose can grow with 
your business. 

·         Multifunction capabilities: Multifunction inkjet printers give users the option to print, scan, and copy all at the touch of a button, which can be 
very convenient, especially if your production will be growing in the future.

Users who often outsource prints larger than 8.5” x 14” – such as CAD drawings, large-scale photos, posters, banners and other large printouts – will 
benefit the most from owning a large format inkjet printer by reducing the cost of outsourcing each time a large printout is needed. These considerations 
will help determine which wide format inkjet printer is right for you.

Popular UV flatbed printer series
According to IT Strategies, a Hanover, MA industry research firm, the Océ Arizona product range  has the leading installed base of printers in the 
<$200,000 UV Flatbed category. Since the first shipment of an Océ Arizona Series printer in 2007, nearly 3,000 systems built on this platform have 
been shipped to date.

“The popularity of the Océ Arizona Series in the market is validation of the benefits and opportunities it provides to our customers,” said Attilio Mainoli, 
CEO of Océ Display Graphics Systems. “The Océ Arizona 318 GL model gives smaller shops – those that thought they couldn’t afford an Océ Arizona 
model – the same application versatility as our other Océ Arizona models at an affordable price point.”

Affordable flatbed printing
The Océ Arizona 318 GL printer delivers quality printing on the same robust platform as the Océ Arizona 360 GT printer at a price positioned for 
low-volume production environments – while delivering the same application versatility. The Océ Arizona 318 GL printer is available fully installed and 
operational for less than $100,000 . It is ideal for sign makers, smaller print providers, reprographers and other graphics producers that need true 
flatbed quality and capability but cannot afford a large capital investment. 

“For quite some time, we have been looking for a UV curable, rigid substrate printer to sell as an introductory model,” said Jamie Powers, Digital Specialist 
with Reece Supply, a distributor of Océ Arizona Series printers in the U.S. “Nothing that I have seen to date could provide the quality at a price point 
that I felt the small and mid-size sign shops need in order to compete with the larger print providers. After seeing the Océ Arizona 318 GL printer in

that are difficult to produce on printers that move the media through the printing system. This true flatbed architecture enables printing on irregularly-
shaped or non-square items, heavy substrates, unusually smooth media such as glass, or materials that have an uneven surface such as plywood or 
framed canvas.

Options increase flexibility
An available factory-installed White Ink Option enables under-printing for non-white media or objects, over-printing for backlit applications on transparent 
media and printing white as a spot color. The White Ink Option provides potential high-value, high margin application opportunities, and, since 2008, 
more than 90% of Océ Arizona printer purchasers have selected this option for their printer. 

A Roll Media Option is also available, giving print providers 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. Entire campaigns – including rigid signs, banners and posters – can be created 
on one printer, ensuring quality and consistency across all printed items.

A real Océ Arizona printer in every way
Like all Océ Arizona Series printers, the Océ Arizona 318 GL printer includes Océ VariaDot® imaging technology for award-winning, high-quality output. 
Océ VariaDot technology does not require “light” colors to achieve high image quality and as a result uses significantly less ink – less than half that of 
many competitive systems.

The Océ Arizona 318 GL printer includes a UV curing system designed by Océ that provides more UV energy to support difficult-to-cure media, while 
reducing heat at the media surface. It also features a new-style tabletop that allows very thin media to be printed directly on the table without 
mechanical distortion of the media into the vacuum holes. 

Highly honored UV flatbed printer series
All Océ Arizona Series printers – including the new Océ Arizona 318 GL model – share the same award-winning image quality and robust architecture, 
offering the Océ values of quality, reliability, productivity and user-friendliness. In all, Océ Arizona Series UV flatbed printers have earned 27 industry 
awards to date from organizations throughout the world. These awards validate the quality and innovation built into every Océ Arizona Series printer.

It prints at production speeds up to 926 square feet per hour of roll-to-sheet output with no post-print finishing required for standard-sized jobs. It also 
features collated set printing, so a print provider can print and deliver an entire campaign – including banners, posters and flyers – in a single business 
day. 

The Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer gives retailers the ability to move time-critical jobs in-house, which enables them to quickly react to regional, 
seasonal and competitive market conditions while potentially lowering costs over outsourcing.

For offset printers, the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer can help open doors to new business opportunities. Printers can take on short-run digital 
jobs – posters, banners, flyers and more – that are cost-prohibitive to run on their offset presses because with this system, there are no make-ready 
hard costs. 

Media handling options add flexibility and increase productivity
In addition to the standard top delivery tray, which can hold up to 100 plain paper prints, two media handling options are available for the Océ 
ColorWave 600 Poster Printer. 

A stacker is available that can automatically sort up to 150 sheets of paper and deliver them onto a flat tray at the back of the printer. The stacker is 
customer-installable and easily movable. It is especially suited to handle heavier media (120 gsm and up).

A take-up unit is available for roll-to-roll printing. This option is ideal for unattended printing on paper, banner material or self-adhesive vinyl that will later 
be cut on an automated cutter such as the Océ ProCutTM system.

Revolutionary poster printing technology
Specially designed for a poster printing application, the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer uses Océ TonerPearls® solid toner and Océ CrystalPoint 
imaging technology to produce consistent, high quality prints. Lines are crisp and sharp, revealing fine details and consistent, solid colors. 

Importantly, the Océ ColorWave 600 Poster Printer has been designed for consistency of print quality within a run.  Print 1,000 will have the same 
quality as print 1 within the job.

With Océ TonerPearls toner, there’s no fine dust, odor or harmful emissions so the printer can be placed nearly anywhere. The prints from the Océ 
ColorWave 600 Poster Printer can be used inside office buildings, meeting centers and retail stores as there are no emissions or fumes. 

The system’s ergonomic design makes it very easy to use. An operator standing in one spot can access nearly all functional areas of the printer, 
including the touch-screen operator panel, front loadable media drawers, Océ TonerPearls cartridges and the top media delivery tray.

Océ Announces New Template-Making and Masking Paper

Océ, an international leader in digital document management, today announced the availability of Océ VACUBOND paper for use with Océ Arizona® 
Series UV flatbed printers to simultaneously facilitate the printing of pre-cut pieces and keep the vacuum table clean.

Because of the stationary vacuum table design, Océ Arizona Series printers can be used to print directly onto pre-cut items of any shape, up to two 
inches thick. Océ VACUBOND paper can be used to print a template for accurate placement of these items on the vacuum table. An operator aligns 
the pre-cut items to the template and begins printing.

Océ VACUBOND paper then serves as a mask to protect the vacuum table, particularly when overprinting (printing full bleeds) pre-cut items. Océ 
VACUBOND paper strikes the perfect balance between sufficient vacuum pressure and strong pull-through to hold pre-cut pieces in place. At 48 
inches wide, it is conveniently sized for Océ Arizona Series UV flatbed printers to enable the operator to easily cover a single vacuum table zone 
with one cut of paper.

Availability
Océ VACUBOND is a 17-pound bond paper that can be recycled. It is available as a 48-inch wide by 500-foot long roll. To order, customers should 
contact their authorized Océ Imaging Supplies dealer or call 1.888.503.2235.

Océ Arizona Series UV Flatbed Ptinters Offer Greater Versatility and Productivity

Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, today announced the new 
Océ Arizona® 360 GT and Océ Arizona 360 XT flatbed printer models with enhancements over previous models that enable its customers to 
increase productivity and application versatility and open doors to technical and industrial applications. The Océ Arizona 360 GT printer will be 
on display in the Océ booth #4258 at the International Sign Expo in Las Vegas, NV, April 28-30, 2011.

The Océ Arizona 360 GT model features the standard table size of 49 by 98.4 inches while the Océ Arizona 360 XT model features an extra large table 
size of 98.4 by 120 inches. Both offer an Express Mode print speed of up to 377 square feet per hour, which is ideal for banner and outdoor work. A 
new High Definition print mode delivers incredibly fine feature reproduction including the ability to print text as small as two-point size, enabling print 
providers to offer higher-margin technical and industrial applications such as printing on lenticular lenses and membrane panels.

These new models include a UV curing system designed by Océ that provides more UV energy to support difficult-to-cure media while reducing heat 
at the media surface by 50%. This improves support for heat-sensitive media such as thin polystyrene or polyester films. 

Both models also feature a new-style tabletop that allows very thin media to be printed directly on the table without mechanical distortion of the media 
into the vacuum holes. This enables users to print very thin, flexible materials on the flatbed table, if they do not have the Roll Media Option 
installed. 
 
Océ VariaDot® imaging technology for high quality and cost savings
The Océ Arizona 360 GT and Océ Arizona 360 XT printers use UV curable inks and Océ VariaDot imaging technology to deliver near-photographic 
image quality for nearly any application. Printers equipped with Océ VariaDot technology can simultaneously jet smaller 6, 12, and 18 picoliter droplets 
for the production of sharp images with smooth gradients and quartertones. This technology also provides the ability to jet larger 30, 36 and 42 picoliter 
droplets for the production of dense, uniform solid colors. The result is near-photographic image quality with sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 
1,440 dpi or higher. Print providers should never have to refuse a job because of their clients’ expectations for high quality output, when using an Océ 
Arizona 360 GT or Océ Arizona 360 XT printer.

In addition to superior image quality, Océ VariaDot imaging technology requires only four-color inks to achieve the best image quality in the industry, 
based on the six DPI/SGIA Product of the Year Awards earned by the Océ Arizona Series of printers, more than any other UV flatbed printer on the 
market. The clever use of only four colors, jetted in variable-sized droplets, results in significantly lower ink consumption than printers that use fixed 
droplet inkjet technology or require six colors to achieve sufficient print quality. On average, all Océ Arizona Series printers consume less than 8 ml 
of ink per square meter, including all maintenance; less than any other flatbed printer Océ has tested to date.

Select the table size that fits the job
Designed as true flatbed systems, the Océ Arizona 360 GT and Océ Arizona 360 XT printers can print on a wide variety of rigid substrates up to 1.89 
inches thick. Each uses a vacuum system to hold media stationary on a flat surface, assuring accurate registration even on multiple imaging passes. 
Full bleeds can be printed, saving time and labor costs in finishing. 

The standard size table on the Océ Arizona 360 GT printer can accommodate a 49.2 by 98.4 inch rigid board, and is designed to handle the vast 
majority of display graphics jobs. 

The extra large size of the Océ Arizona 360 XT printer enables printing of oversized sheets and objects up to 98.4 by 120 inches in size. Two 
independent vacuum systems in the Océ Arizona 360 XT model also enable the printer to be used in a continuous imaging mode for rigid media up 
to 49.2 by 98.4 inches (or a standard four- by eight-foot board). Two rigid boards can be placed on different areas of the flatbed table. While one 
board is being printed, the operator can change the other. Since the system never has to stop printing for a media change, no time is lost between 
prints and significantly higher net productivity can be achieved. Up to 87 four- by eight-foot boards can be produced in a single eight-hour shift 
on the Océ Arizona 360 XT printer using Express print mode, making it a great solution for typical sign and display work that would otherwise go 
to the screen press.

Available options for both models
A Roll Media Option is available, giving print providers 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. 

A White Ink Option is also available that enables under-printing for non-white media or objects, over-printing for backlit applications on transparent media 
and/or printing white as a spot color. Because the White Ink Option enables users to take advantage of these high-value, high-margin application 
opportunities, more than 90% of Océ Arizona printer purchasers have selected this important option for their printer since its introduction in 2008.

Océ North America Qualifies M-real Substrates for Océ Arizona Series UV Flatbed Printers

Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced it has qualified several 
products produced by leading fiber paperboard producer M-real Corporation for the Océ Arizona® Series of UV flatbed printers. To date the products 
qualified include Carta Elega and Carta Integra paperboard and Kemiart topsheet used in corrugate packaging applications. 

The Océ Arizona Series of flatbed printers are very versatile in a variety of applications including digital packaging – from prototype creation to custom and 
short-run packaging on both paperboard and corrugate. By being able to print directly to rigid substrates up to two inches thick and a maximum eight foot 
by ten foot image area, the Océ Arizona Series of printers enables packaging companies and their customers to realize a host of digitally-derived 
benefits previously not cost effective when produced traditionally.

Océ North America Product Marketing Manager Randy Paar states, “Océ’s qualification of the M-real products now provides packaging companies 
entering into digital packaging an immediate, high quality, proven result that not only works on the digital flatbed but traditional offset or flexographic 
presses as well. This means the brand owner can much more confidently and quickly sign-off on a prototype and then see it go into production 
knowing that the final result will be accurately reproduced on the very same media.”

Qualification consisted of producing samples on the Océ Arizona printer at the Océ Knowledge Center in Itasca, IL followed by further evaluation by M-real. 
The resulting image quality and ink adhesion were exceptional using the Océ IJC256 Series inks, even when printed at high volume production speeds. 
Using the companion Océ ProCut™ digital cutting table for creasing and cutting, both ink and substrate demonstrated good structural performance with 
virtually no cracking, chipping or scuffing of the printed package with either paperboard or corrugated board. M-real Americas Technical Marketing 
Manager John Sarik states, “The samples of M-real’s Carta Integra and Carta Elega FBB (Folding Box Board) produced on the Océ Arizona printer l
ooked exceptional. They were presented at a company meeting where the images, screen work, and color reproduction were commented on as 
being top quality. Additionally, previous samples of Kemiart Lite and Kemiart Graph produced on the same printer as combined corrugated board 
showed very good color intensity, critical for POP display work, and fine detailed screening used in halftone reproductions.”

Océ ColorWave 300 System Features World’s First on Top Stacker for Inkjet Media

Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced the new Océ 
ColorWave® 300 Top Delivery Tray. This is the world’s first stacker that stacks many types of inkjet media on 
top of the printer, reducing space requirements to a minimum.

Océ ColorWave 300 Top Delivery Tray Ensures Reliable Stacking

Traditionally, collecting and stacking large format inkjet prints is cumbersome. Prints are usually delivered in a 
tray or bag in front or behind the printer. As a consequence, the order of the prints gets lost, and it can be 
troublesome finding the right print. Moreover, there is also a high risk of damaging the print. This situation can 
be improved with a flat stacking table behind or in front of the printer. However, these tables not only occupy 
considerable floor space but also consume significant energy by applying a heated roll to flatten out the curl of 
the inkjet media. 

With the Océ ColorWave 300, Océ introduced the world’s first true single footprint multifunctional system for 
large format color and B&W documents. When mounted on top of the Océ ColorWave 300 system, the Top 
Delivery Tray can stack up to 50 sheets of inkjet media.

Unique Océ Technologies

Unique Océ technologies within the Top Delivery Tray ensure neat and reliable stacking that save considerable 
time in collating the output. These technologies include:

Dynamic Anti-Curl Feature 
Inkjet media is delivered on 2” cores, which can result in strong curl of the paper, especially at the end of the roll. 
Curled paper is most difficult to handle and often creates paper jams in traditional horizontal stackers. The Océ 
ColorWave 300 Top Delivery Tray has a dynamic anti-curl (DAC) feature that deals with the curl dynamically. 
The DAC feature straightens the paper curl, without applying heat (energy).

Smart Media Path Design 
There is a huge variety of inkjet media including plain, coated, and photo paper. The Top Delivery Tray can 
stack many different media types and thicknesses because of the straight media path. The Océ ColorWave 
300 system with the Top Delivery Tray is designed in such a way that sharp curves are avoided. 

Drying Time Management
Depending on the ink coverage and the media type, drying time after printing must be taken into account to 
avoid damaging the prints. The Océ ColorWave 300 system determines the drying time of each media type 
automatically. The prints and copies will only be transported to the Top Delivery Tray when they are dry.

Air Separation 
When sliding large format prints on top of each other, resistance between two sheets can cause skewed stacking 
or media to be pushed from a stacker and fall on the ground. These problems are solved on the Océ ColorWave 
300 Top Delivery Tray by applying air separation between the sheets, reducing the resistance.

The Océ ColorWave 300 Top Delivery Tray

The Top Delivery Tray delivers additional benefits to users, including:

 

·         Conserves valuable floor space, no large stacking table required.

·         Decreases time spent, no manual collation required.

·         Saves money, no reprint of damaged prints required.

·         Reduces energy usage, no heated roll needed to flatten curled media.

New Océ Arizona 550 XT Extra-Large UV Flatbed Printer

Océ, an international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, today announced 
the new Océ Arizona® 550 XT UV flatbed printer with an extra-large flatbed table for oversized rigid media or 
objects. It includes a Production Mode print speed nearly twice that of the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer. The 
Océ Arizona 550 XT printer will make its debut in the international Océ booth at the FESPA exhibition in Munich, 
22-26 June 2010. It is expected to be available for order in the U.S. starting in late Q3-2010.

The Océ Arizona 550 XT printer is the next generation model in the award-winning Océ Arizona Series of UV 
flatbed printers. It uses UV curable inks and Océ VariaDotTM imaging technology to deliver near-photographic 
image quality for nearly any application. Designed as a true flatbed system, it can print on a wide variety of 
oversized rigid substrates up to 98.4 by 120 inches and offers a flexible media printing option for roll-based 
media up to 86.6 inches wide. 

Exceptional image quality, productivity and ink economy with Océ VariaDot imaging technology
The Océ Arizona 550 XT printer uses Océ VariaDot imaging technology that enables a printhead to produce ink 
droplets of variable size resulting in variable sized dots on the printed media. The ability to jet small droplets 
produces sharp images with smoother gradients and quartertones. The ability to jet larger droplets produces dense, 
uniform solids. The result is near-photographic image quality with sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 
1,440 dpi or higher. Print providers will never have to refuse a job because of their clients’ expectations for high 
quality output when using the Océ Arizona 550 XT printer.

In addition to superior image quality, Océ VariaDot imaging technology requires only four color inks to achieve 
the best image quality in the industry. The use of only four colors and of variable-sized droplets results in 
significantly lower ink consumption – up to 50 percent less – than six color printers with fixed droplet inkjet 
technology. 
 
Production print speeds
The Océ Arizona 550 XT printer features a Production print mode of up to 462 square feet per hour on rigid 
media without sacrificing any of the award-winning print quality for which the Océ Arizona Series is famous. 
With this productivity, print providers can confidently take on peak demand and rush jobs. It reduces the risk 
for businesses wanting to make the transition from analog to digital printing by providing all the print quality they 
need at production speeds. 

Ideal for banner and outdoor work
An Express print mode is also available with print speeds of up to 709 square feet per hour, nearly three times 
higher than the fastest print speed available on the previously-released Océ Arizona 350 XT printer. Express 
Mode prints have all the sharpness and color density of other print modes and are ideal for banner and outdoor 
work.

Extra large versatility
Nearly 110 four- by eight-foot boards can be produced in a single eight-hour shift on the Océ Arizona 550 XT 
printer using Production print speeds, making it a great solution for typical sign and display work that would 
otherwise go to the screen press. The extra width of the Océ Arizona 550 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 four- by eight-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 operator can change the other. 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. 

Print providers can offer innovative products and services to their customers
By using the extra-large flatbed and the white ink capabilities of the Océ Arizona 550 XT printer, print providers 
can innovate the products and services they offer for higher-value print applications. Print providers can print 
on irregularly shaped objects or non-square media, heavy substrates such as glass, or materials that have an 
uneven surface such as wood. This is an important advantage over competitive rigid-capable printers that use 
belt or friction-based media feed systems, as they can often only print on square-cornered, lightweight materials 
of uniform thickness. The true flatbed architecture enables printing on anything that is reasonably flat up to two 
inches thick. Print providers can add value to a metal cookie box, a DVD, a piece of furniture, a pane or 
architectural glass, a sheet of painted aluminum, wood, medium density fiberboard (MDF), or even a full-sized 
garage door. The Océ Arizona 550 XT printer offers unparalleled versatility for those print providers that are 
serious about innovation and higher margin printing applications. 

Costs a third less than comparable systems
Like all Océ Arizona printers, the Océ Arizona 550 XT model was designed using a cost-efficient engineering 
approach that makes it much more affordable than comparable systems. Print providers can own this high quality, 
high capacity printer for about 30% to 40% less than comparable, competitive UV flatbed systems. That reduces 
capital outlay for small- and medium-sized businesses and enables them to acquire the best-in-class print quality 
and application versatility. 
 
Available options
A Roll Media Option is available giving print providers 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. 
Print providers can use this system to expand into more exotic applications that command premium prices, from 
parts templates for manufacturing; CD covers and wallpaper, to fast food menus and fabric, and anything 
needed for sign and display.

The Océ Arizona 550 XT printer includes a White Ink Option that 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 print providers 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 print providers 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. Using white ink to its full effect will have a very positive 
impact on the margins that print providers can demand of their customers.

Océ Demonstrates Package Prototyping Application at Print 09

Océ Arizona 350 XT UV flatbed printer and Océ ProCut digital cutting tables produce on-demand package 
prototypes on a variety of rigid and flexible media

At Print 09 in Chicago, September 11-16, 2009, Océ will demonstrate how new digital technologies can 
advance packaging prototyping. In its booth 1863, Océ will show how the Océ Arizona® 350 XT UV 
flatbed printer and the Océ ProCutTM digital cutting table – key elements of the complete, integrated Océ 
Streamlined Workflow system – can be used to create package prototypes quickly and accurately.

Widely employed in the display graphics industry to create exhibits and point-of-purchase displays, the 
Océ Streamlined Workflow system can offer the same benefits of producing quick and accurate structural 
prototypes to design groups and packaging companies. Working with Arden Software, Océ will demonstrate 
how Arden’s IMPACT software can easily fit into the entire workflow to design, print and finish a package 
prototype. IMPACT software is a design package specifically written for print and packaging companies, 
display manufacturers and die makers. It includes dedicated tools for structural design, product development, 
virtual prototyping and manufacturing.

From design to finished prototype in minutes
The demonstration includes package prototypes designed in Arden’s IMPACT structural design software that 
provides support for solid board, in corrugated or point of purchase displays. It assists users in setting up and 
completing complex projects with ease. Its intuitive drawing tools, a large library of pre-programmed and 
reusable design styles, an intelligent layout feature, and realistic 3D modeling capabilities combine to make 
IMPACT software one of the most usable, efficient and productive design packages on the market. 

Visitors to the Océ booth will see firsthand how the finished design file is imported into the Océ ProCut system, 
where the dielines are assigned to the appropriate cutting/creasing tools. A bar code and registration marks
are added. The cut data is sent to the Océ ProCut digital cutting table. The print data (including bar code and 
registration marks) is sent to the ONYX® ProductionHouseTM RIP workstation for processing, then forwarded 
to the Océ Arizona 350 XT UV flatbed printer. Once printing is complete, the operator moves the finished piece 
to the Océ ProCut table, scans the barcode and initiates cutting. The Océ ProCut system retrieves the 
cut/crease data, and the prototype is automatically finished. What once took hours is now done in minutes.

The Océ Streamlined Workflow eliminates common errors made when a prototype is created manually, often 
in the cutting stage. Designers and packaging companies can print as many prototypes as needed for focus 
groups and client presentations – even create custom short runs for test markets – and be assured that every 
piece will be consistent in color and fit. Most importantly, the restriction of printing on white paperboard is 
eliminated.  With the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer plus the White Ink and Roll Media Options, users can print 
on nearly any rigid or flexible media of any color, up to two inches thick. Printing on the actual package 
substrate is possible using the Océ system.

The Océ Streamlined Workflow
The Océ Streamlined Workflow combines an Océ Arizona Series UV flatbed printer with the Océ ProCut 
cutter and sophisticated workflow software to manage cutting and nesting, plus the ONYX ProductionHouse 
RIP – a full ICC and Pantone®-certified RIP to process the graphics. The system addresses the very same 
issues in producing packaging prototypes as it does in the display graphics industry. The overall process is 
streamlined. Changes to the structural design and graphics can now be quickly realized on the final stock 
and with cost-effective press-proof quality results.

About the Océ Arizona 350 XT printer
The spectacularly large Océ Arizona 350 XT is a UV flatbed inkjet printer with near-photographic image quality 
and white ink support for printing on rigid or flexible media. 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. 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. The available White Ink Option 
enables under-printing for non-white media or objects, over-printing for applications on transparent media 
and printing white as a spot color.

About the Océ ProCut System
The Océ ProCut system includes a range of Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables to automate cutting operations, 
Océ ProCut Software for preparing the cut data in a seamless workflow, and expert pre- and post-installation 
service and support. It can be used to optimize basic trimming tasks for rigid substrates such as hard and soft 
foam board, plastic material, acrylic and styrene, and flexible media including paper, film, vinyl and fabric. It 
can also be used to finish more complex jobs such as contour-cut point-of-purchase displays, 
production-quantity decals, and structural projects such as package prototyping.

 Member of the Paperboard Packaging Council
Océ North America is a member of the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) and is actively working with 
the association to inform associates of the new technologies that can be used to streamline the production 
of high quality packaging prototypes.

Océ Demonstrates Innovative Display Graphics Opportunities

Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, today announced an innovative 
demonstration of sustainable display graphics to be shown at Print 09 in Chicago. The combination of Océ 
Arizona? 350 XT wide format UV curable flatbed printer with rigid, lightweight Re-Board? substrate results in a 
sustainable, versatile solution for a wide variety of display graphics applications.

Made from 40 percent recycled paper using water-based adhesives, Re-Board substrate is 100 percent 
recyclable. The strong, durable substrate is based on a unique structure of corrugated cells and layers of 
special liners. Re-Board substrate has been used in Europe by major corporations to create strong, 
environmentally friendly furniture, retail and trade show displays, portable emergency housing, and many other 
unique applications.  Now Océ brings Re-Board capabilities to the United States as part of the Océ Imaging 
Supplies product portfolio. At Print 09, Océ will demonstrate these far-reaching possibilities when Océ wide 
format color printing systems are paired with sustainable Re-Board substrate.

"When a product comes to market which meets the criteria for the three-Rs (Reduce-ReUse-Recycle), the 
industry needs to sit up, take notice and embrace it. Re-Board meets all of these requirements. Combining this 
100 percent conventionally recyclable material with the Océ Arizona 350 XT UV curable flatbed printer and 
Océ ProCutTM digital cutting system creates a unique earth friendly solution that is both functional and cool," 
said Vic Nathan Barkin, President, Vic Barkin Consulting. "Re-Board is manufactured using energy efficient 
methods without the use of hazardous materials and is composed of 40 percent recycled material. These 
important attributes, together with the innovative and limitless design and configuration possibilities of finished 
products, create a valuable niche in the marketplace from which graphic arts providers and their customers can 
benefit." Océ continues to introduce innovative sustainable solutions that enable customers to expand their 
offerings and attract new business opportunities."

The Océ Arizona 350 XT UV curable flatbed printer, which can handle oversized, rigid materials up to 98.4" x 
120", can easily image on almost any rigid or flexible media used in the display graphics market in brilliant CMYK 
color plus White. With the addition of Re-Board substrate, the result is a wide variety of sustainable and variable 
applications to help graphic arts professions grow their businesses in new ways. After printing, the Océ ProCut 
automated cutting system finishes printed boards with 100 percent accuracy and minimal material waste. A new 
V-cut tool cuts angles for three-dimensional structures, and the consistently notched boards are then bent into 
their final shapes. Print 09 attendees can view the results of this process in Océ Booth 1863. To demonstrate 
the innovative, sustainable solution, components of the Océ booth structure - including furniture and display 
items - will be constructed out of Re-Board for in use throughout the show.  

With the Océ Arizona 350 XT color printer, any graphic design can be printed on Re-Board substrate, so 
applications are limited only by the user’s imagination. This in turn offers unlimited potential for print providers to 
grow their print business by providing new opportunities to help customers. The ability to offer versatile, out-of-
the-box services is especially important in a difficult economy. With the combination of the Océ Arizona 350 XT 
printer and Re-Board substrate, graphic arts providers can open up entire new markets for applications like 
lightweight promotional furniture or emergency housing after natural disasters. 

"When Océ innovation in sustainable business practices in print combines with recycled, flexible Re-Board 
substrate, the result is a sustainable solution for all kinds of new applications. Marketers and commercial printers 
can expand their client base and grow their revenue streams with affordable ‘green’ display graphics and other 
applications. This is a great opportunity for print providers in a variety of markets including packaging, screen 
printing, exhibit display, retail POP display, and printshops using flatbed printers," said JT Maier, Vice President, 
Océ Imaging Supplies, Océ North America Wide Format Printing Systems division.

More companies now prefer environmentally friendly materials and processes. Re-Board substrate is a “greener” 
replacement for wood, plastic, MDF and metal. Applications that have been created with PVC, Styrene and MDF 
can be replaced by a greener solution that offers cost benefits along with sustainability. Reduced use of raw 
materials in manufacturing recycled materials and reduced CO2 emissions throughout the product’s life cycle 
make Re-Board an unusually beneficial substrate. Its energy-efficient manufacturing process uses no harmful 
products. With Océ digital printing systems, users also avoid harmful emissions and waste associated with 
offset printing. Just-in-time digital printing eliminates the need to manage and discard unneeded inventory. 
Re-Board end-customers realize cost savings in transportation because Re-Board is much lighter than traditional 
materials. Re-Board’s lighter weight decreases CO2 emissions during transportation and reduces logistic costs. 
Users will also find the lightweight Re-Board substrate easier to handle than alternative materials.

Océ Previews Posterizer Point Of Sale Signage Solution at GlobalShop 2009

Océ, an international leader in digital document management, announces the U.S. preview of its PosterizerTM 
integrated signage solution at Océ booth #5450 during GlobalShop® 2009, March 23-25, in Las Vegas, NV.  
Convincing, coordinated and innovative signage can motivate customers to spend more during every store 
visit.  Posterizer is a complete retail signage solution, including software, hardware, consumables and services, 
that makes it easy to produce point of sale (POS) signage that supports consistent branding initiatives - exactly 
when, where and how users need it. The solution was designed for both large retail merchandising departments 
and small retail chain stores. However, it can also be used by pick-and-pack distributors and other print providers 
that create signage solutions for retail partners.

The Posterizer signage solution was originally developed for two of the world’s largest retailers. Today more than 
4,000 retail outlets around the globe now rely on the Posterizer solution to create on-demand signage, shelf tags, 
labels, posters, banners, and digital displays of the highest quality.

 “In today’s challenging retail environment, those companies that can adapt quickly to shifting market conditions 
and capitalize on real-time sales opportunities will be best equipped to weather the storm,” said Sal Sheikh, Vice 
President, Marketing, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. “The turnkey Posterizer 
signage solution provides retailers with the most comprehensive, intuitive and cost-effective tool to create 
customized in-store retail signage that drives customer attention at the point of sale and ultimately helps organizations 
turn merchandise promotions into bottom line results.”
 
Significant Advantages In-Store

The Posterizer signage solution from Océ enables retailers and print providers to get marketing and merchandising 
ideas in front of customers as quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. As a result, companies can boost 
sales and increase profits by influencing buying behavior on the spot, drawing attention to high margin or profitable
items, and managing and moving unsold goods.

Engineered with the unique needs of retailers in mind, the Posterizer solution helps facilitate significant in-store 
advantages in four critical areas:

1.     Cost Control:  Back-office driven and highly intuitive, the Posterizer solution requires minimal on-site 
administration and no technical expertise – eliminating hidden staffing costs. Preset design templates facilitate 
cost effective in-store customization of POS signage. On-demand or on-schedule printing eliminates waste 
caused by unused signage. The print management function manages printing tasks for multiple formats and 
output devices, assuring efficient and productive use of resources.  Accurate tracking of signage usage improves 
the recovery of co-op funds for retailers.

2.     Real-time Accuracy: The Posterizer solution accommodates each organization’s unique profile, including 
company size and structure, existing IT systems and promotional strategies.  It enables retailers to design and 
generate master templates for a full range of POS signage and to automate the calculation of prices, discounts, 
rebates, conversions and special offers by easily linking to existing data bases – ensuring accurate signage
regardless of format.  Access to up-to-the minute pricing, promotions, inventory status and bar coding information 
by store assures data integrity and eliminates the need for assumptions, simplifying store-level decision making.

3.     Just-in-Time Flexibility: The Posterizer solution marries accurate back-office data with on-demand flexibility. 
With the ability to customize, print and hang POS signage within minutes at the store level, retailers can rapidly 
and cost-effectively respond to competitive opportunities and changing market conditions. Retailers also have 
the flexibility to create tailored POS signage tied to out-of-store or localized marketing efforts. Master templates 
can be easily populated with variable data, allowing for creative customization that drives localized sales 
impact while maintaining consistent messaging enterprise-wide.

4.     Brand Management: POS templates generated by the Posterizer solution incorporate pre-determined 
design standards, logos and trademarks, images and illustrations, colors and fonts, helping retailers preserve 
brand identity across multiple stores and in multiple sign formats. These master templates are linked directly to 
company databases and catalogs, securing brand identity and data integrity. 

A Truly Integrated Retail Signage Solution             

Océ’s consultative services enable users to establish key goals and build a comprehensive integration plan to 
facilitate implementation. This includes recommending appropriate software modules, suitable printers for perfect 
signage and the best use of printing supplies. Staff are trained to use the software to its fullest capability, ensuring 
the solution is fully optimized. Ongoing training and consultation – including national warehousing and distribution 
of media, toners and inks, on-site training and software help desk support – keeps the solution running and drives 
maximum ROI. 

Océ printers range from small color laser printers for shelf tags and end cap signage to the latest technology in 
large format poster printers so retailers and print providers can realize fast on-demand signage results without 
sacrificing quality or reliability. Additionally, organizations can produce environmentally friendly signage printed 
on recycled materials by sustainability-secure Océ systems. The Posterizer solution is ideally suited for use with 
the new Océ ColorWave™ 600 printer – a fast, cost effective, easy-to-use large format production color printer
that enables mass market retailers to rapidly produce high quality color signage to optimize sales opportunities –

Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Solutions Streamline Display Graphics Workflow from Prepress through Finishing

Océ expands its display graphics offering with a complete digital system that streamlines the workflow – from 
prepress to finishing – of rigid and flexible display graphics media. The new Océ ProCutTM digital cutting solutions 
include a range of Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables to automate cutting operations, Océ ProCut Software 
for preparing the cut data in a seamless workflow, and expert pre- and post-installation service & support. This 
complete system reduces labor and materials costs in the finishing stage while enabling customers to maintain 
high productivity levels and increase profit margins. It also opens the door to new business opportunities as 
customers can offer a wider range of services to their clients. 

The new challenges for digital print providers
Large format digital printing systems for graphics applications have increased in speed, quality and versatility. 
Many have the added ability to print on both rigid and flexible materials. The overwhelming majority of digital 
graphics prints require trimming or contour-cutting once printing is complete. Manual cutting takes time and 
inevitably generates errors resulting in costly reprints, material waste and missed deadlines. Trimming thick 
media and manually cutting contour prints are particularly vulnerable to this low productivity / high labor cost 
risk. Unusual shapes often result in excess media waste. Pre-cut media can be a time-saver on the finishing 
end, but is expensive and difficult to manage. Finishing is often the bottleneck in a display graphics digital printing 
workflow.

Océ ProCut digital cutting solutions are automated finishing systems that can be used to optimize basic trimming 
tasks for rigid substrates such as hard and soft foam board, plastic material, acrylic and styrene, and flexible 
media including paper, film, vinyl and fabric. They can also be used to finish more complex jobs such as 
contour-cut point-of-purchase displays, production-quantity decals, and structural projects.

Robust Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables
At the center of Océ ProCut digital cutting solutions are Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables, designed and 
manufactured for Océ in Switzerland by Zünd. This new generation of cutters was recently optimized to offer
extreme robustness, vibration-free performance and low-maintenance.

Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables offer an ideal solution to all finishing needs including trimming and contour-
cutting, through-cutting, kiss-cutting, routing and creasing. The tables are suitable for roll media, sheets or rigid 
substrates up to 1.97 inches thick.  Customers can choose from a variety of medium, large or extra large tables I
n the following sizes:
	Model	Working Area
	Océ ProCut 2500 M	52.36” x 98.42”
	Océ ProCut 2500 L	70.86” x 98.42”
	Océ ProCut 3200 L	70.86” x 125.98”
	Océ ProCut 3200 XL	86.61” x 125.98”

A modular tool system enables the operator to mount up to three tools at the same time to suit the needs of any 
job. For simple jobs, cut speeds can be maximized by removing nonessential tools – and excess weight – from 
the carriage. For complex jobs, e.g. those requiring through-cutting and kiss-cutting, the ability to mount up to 
three tools saves time by eliminating the need to stop the cutting process in order to manually mount another 
tool. Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Tables are built with quality and longevity in mind. They feature an aluminum-
composite table top, an innovative self-adjustable vacuum system and advanced industrial dust protection.  

Exclusive Océ ProCut Software for optimal workflow
Unique Oce ProCut Software is included to prepare the files for cutting. The Océ ProCut Prepress module 
enables quick and easy preparation of registration marks, barcodes and tool assignment. With a few simple 
mouse-clicks, the cut data is generated, saving hours in the prepress stage. With the Océ ProCut Prepress 
module it is also very simple to scale or tile a job before cutting. The Océ ProCut Nesting module gives users 
the ability to quickly and easily nest images based on their actual shape or nest multiple jobs on the same 
media. It trims media consumption and printing times and virtually eliminates the need for pre-cut media.  

Specialized vision software is included that compares the cut data to the position of the registration marks on 
the print and drives the cutter along the cut path with 100% accuracy. It also compensates for image or 
material distortion such as shrinking or stretching.  

 Océ ProCut Software offers innovative user-friendly features including an interactive graphical user interface, 
an intuitive editor for vector manipulation, an editable media library and backside-cutting functions. These 
features reduce operator training time and increase overall productivity as they help remove guesswork from the 
cutter’s operation.

Four simple steps from artwork to finished job
Océ ProCut digital cutting solutions stand alone by offering a single, fully integrated workflow. The system 
guides users through the prepress, printing, and finishing steps, regardless of the job, printer or RIP. 

Step 1:  Cut data preparation
Cut data preparation is accomplished in the easy-to-use Océ ProCut Prepress module:  simply drop PDF or EPS 
artwork in the Océ ProCut hot folder. The job is immediately displayed in the Océ ProCut job queue.  In a matter 
of seconds, the operator can identify all paths within the artwork and can freely assign each path to the relevant 
cutting "layers" such as through-cutting or creasing. With two more clicks, the operator can add registration 
marks and a barcode. The software then automatically generates a print file – sent to the printer complete with 
registration marks and a barcode – and a separate cut file stored on the network. The data are now ready to 
print and cut.

Step 2:  Intelligent nesting 
Nesting helps reduce media waste. Océ ProCut Software nests by actual shape rather than the PostScript® 
bounding box, and rotates the shapes as needed to fit as many as possible on a given media. To use the Océ 
ProCut Nesting module, the operator simply sends the job(s) to the nesting queue and specifies the number of 
copies.  Océ ProCut Software automatically and intelligently performs the nesting. When nesting is complete, 
the operator adds registration marks and a barcode, and the data are ready to print and cut. 

Step 3: RIP and print
The print file generated by Océ ProCut Software can be processed through RIP packages such as ONYX® 
ProductionHouse™ V7, then sent to a printer such as the Océ Arizona® 350 GT UV flatbed printer. The 
registration marks and the barcode – generated by Océ ProCut Software  – will also be printed onto the 
substrate. The completed print is ready for cutting.

Step 4: Automated cutting 
At cutting time, the operator simply places the print on the Océ ProCut Digital Cutting Table and scans the 
barcode. The vision software automatically retrieves the correct cut data from the network and – using an 
on-board camera – compares the position of the registration marks in the data to those on the printed job. 
Once the system has analyzed the exact image position, it starts cutting.  Sophisticated optical registration 
capabilities ensure perfect accuracy for any size or shape. The finished, cut pieces are ready for delivery with 
minimal operator intervention, 100% accuracy and reduced turnaround time.

Reduce costs and improve quality
Océ ProCut digital cutting solutions can significantly reduce labor costs compared to manual cutting because 
only one operator is required to run the highly productive automated cutter. Material costs can be reduced by 
eliminating job re-runs due to human error. In addition, advanced nesting capabilities enable the use of less-costly, 
large standard boards that can be cut in-house rather than using expensive, pre-cut materials or outsourcing the 
job.Customers can confidently offer their clients consistent, high quality finished graphics and reduced turnaround 
times. Cutting is always 100% accurate, and the system compensates for any material distortion that may occur 
during printing. 

Add new business
Customers can expand their businesses by offering premium-priced, contour-cutting jobs and production kiss-
cutting jobs for creating mass-produced decals. With the routing capability, customers can also finish jobs on 
materials they wouldn’t consider cutting by hand such as DIBOND® or acrylic. Structural projects, such as 
self-standing displays or packaging prototypes, are other possible applications for opening up new markets.

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

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.

New Océ Arizona 350 GT UV-curable Flatbed Printer

Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today announced the new 
Océ Arizona® 350 GT UV curable flatbed printer, which includes support for white ink printing and high
production print speeds. The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer will be on display in the Océ booth #1041 at the 
Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo, October 15-18 in Atlanta, and the Océ booth #2400 at 
Graph Expo, October 26-29 in Chicago.

The Océ Arizona 350 GT is the next generation model in the award-winning Océ Arizona printer line. It uses 
UV curable inks and Océ VariaDotTM imaging technology to deliver near-photographic image quality for nearly 
any application. Designed as a true flatbed system, it can print on a wide variety of rigid substrates and features 
a Roll Media Option for printing onto flexible media.  

The Océ Arizona 350 GT expands the popular Océ Arizona family of UV curable, flatbed printers, which also 
includes the Océ Arizona 200 GT and the Océ Arizona 250 GT printers.

White ink expands capabilities
The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer includes a White Ink Option that can be added at the factory or in the field. The 
White Ink Option enables under-printing on 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.

Production print speeds
The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer features production print speeds up to 239 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 full-sized 
(4’ x 8’) boards in a single eight-hour shift, or more than 1,615 square feet of flexible media. 

Printer basics
The Océ Arizona 350 GT combines a true flatbed design with a separate, dedicated roll-to-roll system. It can 
print onto rigid media up to 49" wide x 98" long x 1.89" thick. With the Roll Media Option installed, users can 
print onto flexible media up to 87" wide. It uses four-color (CMYK) plus White UV curable inks and Océ 
VariaDot imaging technology with near-photographic image quality. 

The Océ Arizona 350 GT is a true flatbed design that uses a vacuum system to hold media stationary on a flat 
surface, ensuring accurate registration even on multiple imaging passes. Full bleeds can be printed, saving time 
and labor costs in finishing. No minimum print size means just the necessary materials are used with no substrate 
waste. Unlike all other flatbed or rigid-capable printers, the Océ Arizona 350 GT prints along the long axis of rigid 
media to optimize throughput – the fewer the number of printing passes over the media, the higher the average 
productivity.

The Océ Arizona 350 GT joins the popular Océ Arizona family of UV curable, flatbed printers at the top of the 
range. 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.  All share the same robust architecture and deliberate design that offer the Océ 
values of quality, reliability, productivity and user-friendliness. 

Outstanding image quality, designed for productivity
The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer uses Océ VariaDot imaging technology that enables a printhead to produce 
dots of variable size versus printheads using fixed-droplet technology. Océ VariaDot technology creates these 
variable dots by dispensing ink droplets that vary in size from 6 to 42 picoliters. The ability to vary the drop size 
to as little as 6 picoliters produces sharp images with smoother gradients and quartertones. The ability to jet 
larger droplets up to 42 picoliters produces dense, uniform solids. The result is near-photographic image quality 
with a sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher.

In addition to superior image quality, Océ VariaDot imaging technology with four-color inks uses significantly less
ink compared to six-color printers with fixed-droplet inkjet technology. This lower ink consumption results in ink 
savings of up to 50 percent over fixed-droplet, six-color printers.

Opportunities for applications that command premium prices
The Océ Arizona 350 GT printer can 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 GT printer, along with the White Ink Option, 
opens the printing possibilities to more exotic applications that command premium prices.

A Roll Media Option can be added in the factory or in the field, giving 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. Once a rigid print is finished, the printhead assembly is positioned over the roll module 
and begins printing on flexible media, while the rigid material is swapped out and the new board is placed on 
the vacuum table and prepared for printing. When the flexible media printing is completed, the printhead 
assembly moves back to the table to resume printing on the rigid media. 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 GT printer is ideal for producing a wide variety of display graphics such as event graphics,

Océ Arizona 200 GT UV Curable Flatbed Printer Delivers High Quality Output for Light Production Environments

Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today announced that the 
Océ Arizona 200 GT UV curable flatbed printer is available for order in the United States.  The Océ Arizona 
200 GT printer delivers the same award-winning image quality as the Océ Arizona 250 GT printer but is 
configured for light production environments, making it accessible to print shops and sign makers with lower 
volume demands.  It produces near-photographic image quality with the flexibility of printing onto both rigid 
substrates and roll-based, flexible media.

Proven platform, fully upgradeable
The Océ Arizona 200 GT printer is based on the Océ Arizona 250 GT platform that combines a true flatbed 
architecture with a separate, dedicated roll-to-roll system.  It can print onto rigid media up to 49 inches wide x 
98 inches long x 1.89 inches thick.  By adding the Roll Media Option, users can print onto flexible media up to 
87 inches wide in an automated and unattended manner.

Like the award-winning Océ Arizona 250 GT printer, the Océ Arizona 200 GT uses Océ VariaDotTM imaging 
technology and four-color (CMYK) UV curable inks to produce near-photographic image quality at a true 
production print speed (sellable prints) of 101 ft2 per hour.  The availability of this new, more accessible Océ 
Arizona model enables smaller companies to adopt this exceptional Océ printing technology.  As production 
volumes grow, customers can field-upgrade their Océ Arizona 200 GT printer to an Océ Arizona 250 GT printer 
and realize production print speeds of up to 172 ft2 per hour.

Océ VariaDot Imaging Technology for stunning image quality
The Océ Arizona 200 GT printer uses Océ VariaDot imaging technology, the next evolution of piezoelectric 
inkjet technology that enables a print head to produce dots of variable size versus print heads using fixed-
droplet technology.  Océ VariaDot technology creates these variable dots by dispensing ink droplets that vary 
in volume from six to 42 picoliters.  The ability to vary the drop size to as little as 6 picoliters produces sharp 
images with smoother gradients and quarter-tones.  The ability to jet larger droplets up to 42 picoliters produces 
dense, uniform solid colors.  The result is near-photographic image quality with sharpness only before seen at 
resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher.

In addition to superior image quality, Océ VariaDot imaging technology with four color inks uses significantly less 
ink compared to six color printers with fixed-droplet inkjet technology.  The resulting lower ink consumption 
results in ink savings of up to 35 percent over fixed-droplet, six color printers, making it one of the most 
economical printers to use for sign and display applications.

True flatbed, true flexible media printer
The Océ Arizona 200 GT is a true flatbed system that uses vacuum pressure to hold media stationary on a flat 
surface, ensuring accurate registration even on multiple imaging passes.  Full bleeds can be printed, saving 
time and labor costs in finishing.  No minimum print size means only the necessary materials are used with no 
substrate waste.  Unlike all other flatbed or rigid-capable printers, the Océ Arizona 200 GT prints along the 
long axis of rigid media to optimize throughput – the fewer the number of printing passes over the media, the 
higher the average productivity. 

The Roll Media Option can be added at any time, giving customers the ability to print onto flexible media 
including vinyl, self-adhesive vinyl, scrim banner, textiles, paper and blue backed paper without compromising 
the rigid printing workflow.  Once a rigid print is finished, the print head assembly is moved to a position over 
the flexible media and begins printing, while the rigid material is swapped out and the new board is placed on
the vacuum table and prepared for printing.  When the flexible media printing is completed, the print head 
assembly moves back to the table to resume printing on the rigid media.  The roll media can be dismounted at 
any time without disturbing the rigid printing function, and there is no down time to reconfigure the system to 
change from one print mode to the other.  

The modularity of this system protects the customer’s initial investment because the Roll Media Option can be 
added in the field at any time without cost penalty.  The Roll Media Option can support roll-based stock from 
35.4 inches to 86.6 inches wide with a maximum print width of 86.2 inches.

Availability
The Océ Arizona 200 GT printer and the Roll Media Option are available now for order in the United States.  
For other geographies, please contact your local Océ office.  To drive the Océ Arizona 200 GT printer, ONYX 
ProductionHouseTM Océ Edition software is available as an option.

the path to an energy-efficient, carbon-free business environment." 

"We are delighted that Océ has joined the platform to highlight its activities and achievements in mitigating 
and adapting to climate change," said Climate Action Project Director, Sula Bruce. "It is essential that Industry 
leaders such as Océ promote the action steps they have taken to encourage other companies and to enable 
them to follow in their footsteps." 

World Environment Day is commemorated each year on June 5th in a different city. It is one of the principal 
vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances 
political attention and action. World Environment Day 2008 will be hosted in New Zealand, one of the first 
countries to pledge a carbon-neutral future. The focus of the global 2008 celebrations will be on the solutions 
and the opportunities for countries, companies and communities to "Kick the habit" and de-carbonize their 
economies and lifestyles. 

"Developed and developing countries stand to benefit environmentally, economically, and socially from more 
efficient, low-carbon technologies and strategies," said UN Under-Secretary General and UNEP Executive 
Director Achim Steiner in a press release issued October 1, 2007 to publicize World Environment Day. "What 
we need is action to slow, stop and then to reverse the growth of global greenhouse gas emissions. A 
transition to a low-carbon economy is essential to achieving this," said Steiner.

Océ Adds Versatility to the Océ Arizona 250 GT UV Flatbed Printer with a Dedicated Roll Media Option

“No Compromise” Printing for Rigid and Roll Media
March 18, 2008, Trumbull, CT – Océ, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, 
today announced it has added a Roll Media Option for the Océ Arizona® 250 GT UV flatbed printer.  The Océ 
Roll Media Option gives customers the ability to print on flexible media including vinyl, self-adhesive vinyl, scrim 
banner, paper, film and textiles without compromising the productivity of the rigid printing workflow.  It will be on 
display in the Océ booth #436 at the ISA International Sign Expo® in Orlando, FL, March 27-29, 2008.

The Océ Roll Media Option expands the functionality of the Océ Arizona 250 GT and increases opportunities for 
users by enabling roll-based printing of flexible media to create banners, point-of-sale displays, backlit graphics, 
aper-based posters and fabric panels.  The ability to exactly match print quality across a wide range of media 
gives users an edge in the competitive pay-for-print market when bidding on complex print campaigns.  The 
Océ Roll Media Option can be shipped with new orders or it can be added in the field – all existing Océ Arizona 
250 GT units can be upgraded without hardware modification.  The award-winning image quality of the Océ 
Arizona 250 GT printer is now extended to a vast array of flexible, roll-based media.

“No compromise” roll printing
Unlike most systems, the rigid and the roll printing areas do not interfere with each other.  The two printing 
surfaces can be used sequentially:  while one is printing, the other can be handled without disrupting the printing 
process.

Once a rigid print is finished, the print head assembly is positioned over the Roll Media Option and begins printing 
on flexible media.  Meanwhile, the rigid material is swapped out and a new board is placed on the vacuum table 
and prepared for printing.  Once the flexible media printing is completed, the print head assembly moves back to 
the table to resume printing on the rigid media.  The roll media can then be unloaded without disturbing the rigid 
rinting function.  There is absolutely no down time to reconfigure the system to change from one print mode to 
the other.

Unique technologies ensure accurate, high quality prints
As an added benefit of this architectural approach, the patent-pending system used to move the gantry assembly 
over rigid media can also be used to make micro-corrections in position when printing on flexible media.  This 
enables the printer to actively correct for any media advance errors encountered as the flexible media is advanced 
through the printing path.  Unique to the Océ Arizona 250 GT, this technology results in the highest quality roll media 
printing yet seen in a UV curable inkjet system.  It greatly reduces the amount of wasted prints when media advance 
errors occur because of anomalies in the roll stock.

The Océ Roll Media Option is a ‘touch-free’ system – at no point does any part of the printer or the transport contact 
the printing surface of the media.  Unlike roll-based systems that use pinch rollers, this feature enables customers to 
print on media sensitive to mechanical marking without marring the printing surface.

Roll Media Option features
The Océ Roll Media Option can support roll-based stock from 35.4 inches to 86.6 inches wide.  Maximum print 
width is 86.2 inches.  A cutting guide slot is included to enable the user to cut media in a perfectly straight manner 
while viewing the finished print.  A wind/rewind foot panel to control roll-to-roll movement is included.  This feature 
is used to advance and rewind media during loading and unloading and also enables the operator to view any part 
of the roll before cutting and dismounting.

The Océ Roll Media Option for the Océ Arizona 250 GT is expected to be commercially available in the second 
quarter of 2008.  For existing Océ Arizona 250 GT customers, the field-upgrade to install the Océ Roll Media Option 
can be accomplished in one-half day or less.

Océ Arizona 250 GT printer basics
The Océ Arizona 250 GT is based on a new Océ-developed platform that combines a true flatbed design and a 
separate, dedicated roll-to-roll capability.  It can print onto rigid media up to 49 inches wide by 98 inches long and 
1.89 inches thick.  With the Océ Roll Media Option, users can print onto flexible media up to 87” wide.  It uses 
four-color (CMYK) UV curable inks and Océ VariaDotTM imaging technology with near-photographic image 
resolution and delivers a true production print speed (sellable prints) of 172 square feet per hour.

Awards
The Océ Arizona 250 GT won the Digital Printing & Imaging Association (DPI) 2007 Product of the Year Award 
in the category Output Device Rigid Substrate UV.  DPI Product of the Year Awards compare output from 
competing devices using a common test file designed by DPI.  The prints are reviewed by a panel of judges, each 
with a background and expertise in digital printing and imaging.  The judges look for color appeal, detail and tonality, 
and the output is also judged on how closely it matches the test print.

The Océ Arizona 250 GT flatbed UV printer was designated “a truly innovative product” when it won the viscom 
INNOVATION AWARD 2007 in the Large Format Digital Printing category.  The award was announced during the 
viscom 2007 international trade fair for visual communication, held in Düsseldorf, Germany in September 2007.  

The Océ Arizona 250 GT won the DPI Vision Award, which is given to an exhibiting manufacturer whose new 
product has the best chance of positively impacting the digital imaging industry.  The decision is based on the 
product’s relevance to the market, potential industry influence and prospective value to the product’s end users.  
The award was presented in September 2006.

Océ Introduces Océ CS9060 High Quality Indoor / Outdoor Eco-Solvent Inkjet Printer

Sept. 10, 2007 - Chicago - Océ, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, today 
introduced the Océ CS9060 high quality eco-solvent inkjet printer for creating indoor and outdoor display graphics 
prints.  The Océ CS9060 printer is on display in the Océ Wide Format Printing Division booth #4463 at Graph 
Expo in Chicago, September 9-12, 2007.

The Océ CS9060 printer is ideal for customers entering the digital printing market or companies that are already 
active in this market and want to expand their production capacity.  The Océ CS9060 printer is also an excellent 
solution for corporate in-house production of exhibition graphics, posters, signage, billboards, etc.  It is designed 
for light production environments where high quality output and outdoor durability are required.  Sample 
applications include point-of-purchase displays, transit advertising, exhibit graphics, banners, museum graphics, 
wayfinding and window displays.

High Quality Output, Production Print Speeds and Easy to Use Anywhere
The Océ CS9060 printer is an affordable, high quality, environmentally safe and easy-to-use system that offers 
indoor and outdoor versatility.

The Océ CS9060 printer accepts roll media up to 64 inches wide and can print on a variety of paper, vinyl, textile

Océ Arizona 250 GT: Near-Photographic Quality in a Highly Productive, Flatbed & Roll-to-Roll UV Curable Inkjet Printer

Sept. 26, 2006, LAS VEGAS – Océ (Nasdaq: OCENY), a global leader in digital printing solutions, is 
demonstrating its next generation Océ Arizona 250 GT printer that offers printing without compromise for a 
broad range of applications.  The Océ Arizona 250 GT printer uses UV curable inks and Océ VariaDot 
imaging technology to deliver near-photographic image quality, includes a true flatbed platform to print onto 
a wide variety of rigid substrates, and features an optional roll-to-roll module for printing onto flexible media.  
The printer is on display beginning today at the Specialty Graphics Imaging Association’s Annual Convention 
and Trade Show in Océ booth #734.

“The Océ Arizona 250 GT embodies the Océ product values of quality, reliability, productivity and 
user-friendliness.  It was designed to produce the best possible image quality ever achieved in a flatbed printer.  
The quality truly has to be seen to be believed,” said Gido van Praag, President and CEO of Océ Display 
Graphics Systems, Inc.  “But we also understand the market demands more than just image quality.  We 
designed it to also provide media flexibility, enhanced productivity, investment protection and a lower total 
cost of completing most applications – a total package that provides breakthrough performance not available 
anywhere else.”

Printer Basics
The Océ Arizona 250 GT is based on a new Océ-developed platform that combines a true flatbed design and 
a separate, dedicated roll-to-roll capability.  It can print onto rigid media up to 49” wide x 98” long x 1.89” thick 
(1.25 m wide x 2.5 m long x 48 mm thick).  The optional roll-to-roll module can print onto flexible media up to 
87” (2.2 m wide).  It uses four-color (CMYK) UV curable inks and Océ VariaDot imaging technology with 
near-photographic image resolution and delivers a true production print speed (sellable prints) of 172 ft2 
(16 m2) per hour.

Breakthrough Features
Image Quality.  The Océ Arizona 250 GT uses Océ VariaDot imaging technology, the next evolution of piezo 
inkjet technology that enables a print head to produce dots of variable size versus print heads using 
fixed-droplet  technology.  Océ VariaDot technology creates these variable dots by dispensing ink droplets 
that vary in size from six to 42 picolitres.  The ability to vary the drop size to as little as 6 picolitres produces 
sharp images with smoother gradients and quarter-tones.  The ability to jet larger droplets up to 42 picolitres 
produces dense, uniform solids.  The result is near-photographic image quality with sharpness only before 
seen at resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher.

The quality of images printed on the Océ Arizona 250 GT exceed the quality of those printed on current 
six-color printers using outmoded, fixed-droplet-sized print head technology.  Text as small as 6 pt. is legible.  

Uses Less Ink. In addition to superior image quality, Océ VariaDot imaging technology with four color inks 
uses significantly less ink compared to six color printers with fixed-droplet inkjet technology.  The resulting 
lower ink consumption results in ink savings of up to 35 percent over fixed-droplet, six color printers.

Rigid or Flexible Media, Designed to Fit the Workflow. The Océ Arizona 250 GT is a true flatbed design that 
uses a vacuum system to hold media stationary on a flat surface, ensuring accurate registration even on 
multiple imaging passes.  Full bleeds can be printed, saving time and labor costs in finishing.  No minimum print 
size means just the necessary materials are used with no substrate waste.  Unlike all other flatbed or 
rigid-capable printers, the Océ Arizona 250 GT prints along the long axis of rigid media to optimize throughput 
– the fewer the number of printing passes over the media, the higher the average productivity.

The Océ Arizona 250 GT can 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, l
ightweight materials of uniform thickness. The Océ Arizona 250 GT opens the printing possibilities to more 
exotic applications that command premium prices.

An optional roll-to-roll module can be added in the field, giving 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. Once a rigid print is finished, the print head assembly is positioned over the roll-to-roll module 
and begins printing on flexible media, while the rigid material is swapped out and the new board is placed on 
the vacuum table and prepared for printing.  When the flexible media printing is completed, the print head 
assembly moves back to the table to resume printing on the rigid media.  The roll media can be dismounted 
at any time without disturbing the rigid printing function, and there is no down time to reconfigure the system to 
change from one print mode to the other.  The modularity of this system protects the customers’ initial 
investment because the roll-to-roll option can be added in the field at any time without cost penalty.


Designed for Productivity
A number of features are included to keep the printing workflow moving smoothly:

Ink System.  The UV curable ink is packaged in bulk, 2-litre ink bags minimizing change-out.  A quick-change
 ink system reduces waste, mess, and operator intervention. Intelligent ink bag sensing alerts the operator to 
an ink change requirement before running out of ink and ensures the correct ink color is installed.  The 
regulated ink system maintains consistent ink temperature for optimal printing, making the ambient 
environmental control less critical and less expensive for the end user.

Nozzle-out Mapping.  Two print heads per color enable malfunctioning nozzles to be bypassed, protecting the
 image quality, reducing waste and optimizing productivity.

White Space Skipping.  Large unprinted areas are skipped, increasing throughput.

Beyond Display Graphics Applications

The Océ Arizona 250 GT 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,” the Océ Arizona 250 GT can produce applications beyond the
 norm including custom furniture, glasswork, fixture enhancement, fine art, or nearly anything that the 
imagination can conceive.

and delivery solutions, announces new releases of Océ PRISMA workflow software--Océ TrueProof 2.10 and 
Océ PRISMAproduction 3.10--to support expanded Océ Job Appropriate Color solutions, including Océ 
VarioStream 9230 3/3 printing. Other enhancements contribute to more integrated production workflows to help 
customers reduce costs, simplify management, and capture more color printing business. Further productivity 
and cost improvements are possible as Océ TrueProof eliminates the need for hardware dedicated only to 
proofing or for interrupting production printing operations for proofing. 

"Océ’s strategy is to constantly innovate and improve product capabilities to keep pace with customers’ evolving 
needs. These latest enhancements reflect the growing adoption of Job Appropriate Color and the expansion of 
Océ VarioStream 9000 capabilities delivering on our market commitment. These comprehensive workflow 
solutions and the enhanced Océ VarioStream 9000 platform help customers achieve breakthrough performance 
that drives greater productivity and profit," said Joyce Virnich, Vice President of Marketing, Océ Digital Document 
Systems. 

New Support for Electronic Proofing for 3/3 Applications
Océ TrueProof 2.10 includes electronic proofing for 3/3 color-capable systems like the new Océ VarioStream 
9230. Electronic proofing eliminates the cost of downtime, consumables, personnel and setup for hardcopy 
proof prints. Now users can have an exact 3/3 press proof without halting production printing just to generate 
a few hardcopy proofs. Online electronic proofing also makes a dedicated cut sheet proofing printer unnecessary. 

Océ TrueProof is the only product on the market that offers pixel-precise proofing with front and back registration 
for an exact replica of output as it will print. In-house users can proof work before outsourcing or sending jobs to 
their CRD group. Application programmers and designers can save a job as a PDF and email it to customers, 
resulting in greater convenience and faster approval cycles. Océ TrueProof output can even be used as a 
signature proof. 

Océ PRISMAproduction Gains 3/3 Support and Tighter Workflow Integration
Océ PRISMAproduction software has been enhanced to support 3/3 (two colors plus black duplexed) workflow 
for the Océ VarioStream 9230. A new Oceans graphical user interface allows customized workspaces for 
different users to facilitate greater ease of use and functionality. For example, the GUI can be set up for specific
tasks assigned to an operator or for an administrator requiring security access.

The latest version of Océ PRISMAproduction software allows tighter integration into the most complex production 
environments. Release 3.10 is JDF-capable and provides JMF feedback, ensuring compatibility for operations 
using these standards to drive workflow across devices. UP3i support has been expanded to include additional 
pre- and post-processing devices, giving operations more flexibility within their production workflow. 

Océ PRISMAproduction and Océ TrueProof work together to improve workflow for customers using any member 
of the expanded Océ VarioStream and Océ VarioPrint families, as well as non-Océ devices. 

Océ PRISMAproduction works with Océ and non-Océ equipment, so users can manage the entire print shop 
from a single point of control. DigiPath connectivity is now available for Xerox® DigiPath® Versions 3 and 4, 
plus older versions streamlining workflow. 

CIS is integrated within Océ PRISMAproduction instead of at the mainframe to allow converting, sorting and 
indexing of AFP print files closer to production workflow. Users can now add bar codes, UP3i finishing commands, 
and many other workflow elements without referring back to CIS on a mainframe. New SQL-based database 
access simplifies accounting processes so users can establish more accurate decision-making practices. 
Previously, accounting information was contained in a separate file, requiring users to extract and import data to 
a spreadsheet. Now in addition to Excel, managers can use Crystal Reports, MS Access, and other popular 
applications. Users can build and access their own queries for reporting or use preconfigured report formats.

In addition to 3/3 highlight color support, the new Océ PRISMAproduction release enhances grayscale printing 
to meet specific requirements of technical and medical documentation as well as other applications. The 
crispness of black and white images is sharper, and granularity is reduced, resulting in exceptional image quality. 
As a result, printers can more confidently take on applications that require absolute image clarity.

Océ Helps Texas School District Integrate Students Displaced by Hurricane Katrina

Océ announced that with the help of the Océ Special Education Platform (OSEP), the Mansfield Independent 
School District (MISD) in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area was able to integrate in just one week 200 special needs 
students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. As a result, the students were able to continue their developmental 
programs with minimal interruption. 

OSEP is a flexible, automated environment that eliminates tedious manual processes associated with 
administration of Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and other Special Education documents. IEPs must be 
created, managed, updated and distributed among every classroom teacher, Special Education teacher and 
stakeholder for every child several times a year. This process creates a document management nightmare and 
poses a serious administrative burden for school systems, with no guarantee of compliance or confidentiality. 
OSEP solved these problems for MISD. 

Like most public school systems, the MISD Special Education department primarily used paper forms to capture, 
archive and distribute IEPs. "We were generating a ream of paper per child per year," said Special Education 
Director for MISD, Jane Melms. "When you consider that we serve 2,500 special needs children, with more 
coming in every day, the amount of paperwork is staggering." 

"The MISD Special Education team was able to minimize paperwork, reduce the time to get IEPs to 
stakeholders, and enable a smoother transition for children transferring in and out of the district, including the 
influx of displaced students," said Joyce Virnich, vice president of marketing for Océ Digital Document Systems. 

MISD had just completed phase I of their document management implementation at the end of August, 2005, 
with back-file conversion of some 650,000 existing documents. MISD documents that required a roomful of file 
drawers could be stored on a hard drive small enough to fit in the palm of one hand. Day-forward scanning is 
handled by an Océ VarioPrint 2060 multi-functional system. After Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast, 
the district was able to quickly assimilate IEP documents for 200 more Special Education students displaced 
by the storm. 

The OSEP project had already begun to pay for itself even before the unexpected influx of additional students. 
MISD saves money by improving staff efficiency and productivity and redeploying two employees to high-value 
tasks. Before, when a request for documents came in from another school or district, the records manager 
would have to queue the request, pull the documents, photocopy them and package them for mailing without 
timely receipt confirmation. Now staff can locate documents and email them immediately, complete with 
acknowledgment of receipt. "We can now search an entire million-page, indexed repository through a browser 
rather than physically searching through paper documents. And the images appear much cleaner than our old 
paper documents," said Melms. "When you're growing at a 10 percent clip and don't have to hire new 
employees to keep pace, the result is measurable cost savings. With the Océ program, we can now spend 
more time concentrating on the children."

Océ Announces New Application for Océ Universal Clear Inkjet Film

Nov. 15, 2005, CHICAGO ­ Océ (Nasdaq: OCENY), a global leader in digital document management and 
delivery solutions, today announced that Océ Universal Clear Inkjet Film can be used to create film positives 
for screenprinting applications.  This film offers exceptional optical clarity and can attain very high black ink 
image density, which is ideal for creating digital film masters used to burn screens for screenprinting applications.

Océ Universal Clear Inkjet Film offers a cost-effective solution for creating in-house, short-term film positives.  
Additional overall savings can be realized when using this film with lower cost dye inks.  Because of its hybrid 
coating design, this film's ability to produce high-density blacks with dye inks makes it an economical short-term 
alternative to more expensive combinations such as pigmented inks on microporous coated films or traditional 
photographic methods.

Océ Universal Clear Inkjet Film, when printed at 1440 dpi with Epson® dye inks and Océ complimentary ICC 
profiles, offers a Dynamic Range (DR) of greater than 4.0 (Dmin 0, Dmax >4.0); when printed at 720 dpi it offers 
a DR of 2.7 (Dmin 0, Dmax >2.7), tested using an 18A UV density filter [see footnote 1]. This film has an 
exceptionally clean, clear background resulting in minimum exposure time required to burn the screen.

"The combination of Océ's clear film technology, free ICC profiles and the lower cost of dye based inks offers 
a very economical solution for creating short-term digital screen print positives," said Dan Halkyard, Director, 
Wide Format Marketing, Océ Imaging Supplies.  "We set out to find new and innovative ways for customers to 
use our products to help them become more successful.  These films possess superior technology to create 
film positives at a cost-effective price, and they can also be used in display graphics and GIS applications."

Additional Uses for Océ Universal Clear Inkjet Film

This 4 mil clear polyester based film can also be used in indoor display graphics applications such as window 
signage and in geographical information systems (GIS) applications such as mapping overlays. Océ Universal 
Clear Inkjet Film can be used with thermal and piezo inkjet printers using both dye and water-based pigment ink 
for display graphic applications.  It can be combined with optically clear adhesives and laminates to increase its
functionality and durability while maintaining its superior level of clarity.

Océ Printer Provides Outdoor Durability with Expanded Color Gamut

Océ’s new CS6060 low-solvent, high-performance, large-format inkjet printer is available for order in the United 
States and Canada. The Océ CS6060 delivers high quality 720 dpi graphics with outdoor durability of up to three 
years at production printing speeds. It uses low-solvent inks that provide a wider color gamut than traditional 
solvent inks for more vibrant output. 

The 64-inch wide printer offers 720 dpi by 720 dpi resolution at print speeds of up to 176 square feet per hour in 
four-pass mode. It is a six-color printer that utilizes super-wide piezo inkjet print heads, featuring 512 nozzles per

Océ Demonstrates Industry¹s First Entry-Level UV Hybrid Inkjet Printer for Sign Making Applications

MIAMI, FL, Jan. 23, 2004 ­Océ (Nasdaq:OCENY),  a global leader in digital document management and delivery 
solutions, is demonstrating  the Océ Arizona 60UV hybrid inkjet sign printer in its booth #1971 at the Graphics 
of the Americas conference in Miami, FL, January 23-25, 2004.  The Océ Arizona 60UV is an entry-level printer 
that uses UV (ultraviolet) curable inks to produce large format display graphics on rigid and flexible substrates.  
The Océ Arizona 60UV is unique in that it is the first inkjet printer to combine both flatbed and roll-to-roll printing 
capabilities with UV ink technology at an entry-level price.  Other hybrid models in its price range use either 
aqueous or solvent inks, and other flatbed UV systems are priced several times higher than the Océ Arizona 
60UV.

The Océ Arizona 60UV uses piezo printing technology and UV-curable inks to produce outdoor-durable graphics.  
Using the collapsible, rigid-media tables included with the system, an operator can print directly onto rigid
substrates up to 60 inches wide by 96 inches long by 3/8 inches thick. Printing directly onto a variety of uncoated 
rigid substrates such as foam-core style mounting board, PVC sheets, styrene, aluminum-plastic composites and 
more is easy and profitable with the Océ Arizona 60UV. Roll-based media, such as banner and PSA vinyl, in widths 
up to 64 inches can also be used.

"The Océ Arizona 60UV gives lower-volume shops some of the same capabilities as their bigger competitors," said 
Joyce Virnich, Vice President of Marketing for the Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America, Inc.  
"The ability to print onto both rigid and flexible media gives these shops the ability to compete on price and turnaround 
time. Being able to produce rigid or flexible prints on one piece of equipment enables these shops to grow their 
businesses with an affordable capital investment."

UV curable inks promise several advantages over solvent-based inks.  Since UV-curable inks "cure" instead 
of "dry,"  nozzle dropout caused by ink drying in the print heads is avoided.  This reduces maintenance and I
ncreases printer productivity.   UV-curable inks image well on a wide range of media, and on certain materials 
deliver better printing performance than solvent-based systems.  In addition, there is no concern regarding fume 
exhaust.  This eliminates the need to install a fume extraction system and enables the Océ Arizona 60UV to be 
placed in most any working environment. Ideally suited for sign shops, reprographics houses and franchise operations, 
the Océ Arizona 60UV offers affordable, quality, outdoor durable graphics for a wide range of applications such as 
point-of-purchase displays, exhibit graphics, backlit signs, banners, real estate signs and more.  Intended for 
operation in light production environments, it is user-installable.

The Océ Arizona 60UV uses Océ ColorBlend six-color printing technology to deliver an apparent resolution of 
600dpi.  Print speeds are up to 55 square feet per hour in four-pass mode.  It uses Océ Arizona 7200UV inks, 
packaged in 0.5 liter bottles.  The Océ Arizona 60UV requires Onyx Workflow Software version 6.0 or later.

forms printing systems are highlighted in the findings, ranking first in both the High and Low Monthly Volume 
Scenarios. In IDC’s 2002 study, Océ VarioStream and Océ VarioPrint product families also achieved lowest 
cost of ownership in the industry for both continuous form and cut sheet output.

Several Océ digital printing systems received top rankings in several scenarios used by IDC in the 2003 study. 
In two-up mode for 200+ppm, the Océ VarioStream 7300 Twin held the top position for lowest cost per page 
based on the High Monthly Page Vvolume scenario used by IDC. The Océ VarioStream 6100 achieved top 
ranking for devices ranging in speed from 100-199 ppm, while the Océ VarioPrint 5115 had the lowest cost per 
page among cut sheet models in this segment. In another scenario based on a lower fixed monthly page volume 
assumption, the Océ VarioStream 7300 was first in both one- and two-up output for 200+ppm devices, while the 
Océ VarioStream 7200 had the lowest cost per page in two-up mode for 100-199 ppm output and the second 
lowest cost per page in one-up mode. Additionally, the Océ VarioStream 6100 held the lowest cost per page in 
both one- and two-up modes for devices ranging in speed from 100-199 ppm in this page volume scenario.

"We are very pleased that Océ VarioStream and VarioPrint digital print solutions delivered the lowest total cost 
of ownership for the scenarios tracked by the IDC report that most closely align with the ways customers actually 
use their print solutions," said Carl Joachim, vice president of marketing for Océ Digital Document Systems. "The 
reality is that for total cost of ownership to provide the bottom line business value customers seek, it must perform 
in real world scenarios that customers experience each and every day."

In addition to Océ’s achievement of lowest total cost of ownership in high and low fixed monthly volume scenarios
for the second straight year, IDC noted in its Quarterly Tracker Report that Océ has the leading position in total 
U.S. 2003 continuous form printer shipments year to date. Océ’s achievement of lowest total cost of ownership 
translating into continued market share gains is document by other industry researchers as well. This is reflected 
in the 2002-2007 CAP Ventures Print On Demand Market Forecast where Océ has a leading position of continuous 
form product placements, and, given the cut sheet system’s unique versatility, the company is gaining share in 
the cut sheet arena. This leadership is further underscored by the October 30, 2003 Gartner Research Brief by 
Lynn Ritter titled Océ Makes Good on Cut-Sheet Promise which stated, "Océ is number one in the continuous 
form market, according to Gartner Dataquest unit shipment numbers."

Document experts consider cost of ownership to be a key factor in purchasing and operating decisions, yet it 
can be one of most difficult variables to determine accurately. Using a detailed quantitative analysis, the 
assessment of IDC research professionals provides critical information for professionals making decisions about 
printer investments and managing their business operations for maximum profitability. 

"Printing costs involve more than just hardware and toner. Machine capacity, varying monthly volumes, and 
maintenance costs must also be factored. This report by IDC examines all these factors that make up cost of 
ownership, although soft costs are not addressed. The results of this study show that Océ has made cost of 
ownership one of their top priorities," said Dan Corsetti, IDC senior research analyst. IDC is a leading provider 
of technology intelligence, industry analysis, market data, and strategic and tactical guidance to builders, 
providers, and users of information technology. 

Whole-cost advantages also are dependent on the reliable and versatile performance uniquely available from 
Océ production-class solutions. Océ PRISMA software further enhances cost of ownership by providing unified 
operations management for maximum uptime and efficiency and consistent cost per page. As a result, experts 
in commercial printing, finance and brokerage firms, insurance companies and many other industries count on 
Océ to deliver the cost-effective performance and rock-solid reliability that allow them to work with complete 
confidence and achieve their business objectives.

Innovative Short Run Color
Further showcasing the ability to do more with less, in Booth 3200 the Océ CPS 700 color production system 
will produce vibrant, full-color output for many different applications. The Océ CPS 700 short run color solution 
is recognized for its consistent color quality across entire print runs. Now in its next version, 3.1, the Océ CPS 
700 color workhorse offers higher performance, increased throughput and greater reliability. 

The easy-to-use Océ CPS 700 makes it affordable to add color to business documents. The printer’s broad 
functionality satisfies a host of applications with just one system, so users can capture opportunities that would 
be impossible with less capable devices. For added versatility and volume, users can cluster two or more units 
for higher volumes, or operate them singly for short run color work. Operations gain the advantage of high volume 
capacity without the investment in limited, single-purpose equipment.

The 25 ppm Océ CPS 700 uses patented Océ Direct Imaging Color Technology for consistent color quality 
within and across print runs with no interruptions for recalibration. As a result, commercial printers incur less 
downtime, while achieving greater reliability and productivity. Even in a clustered configuration, all the Océ CPS 
700 devices will maintain total color consistency from run to run, from first print through to last, and from unit to unit.


Solutions for Workflow Management
Also shown at Booth 3200 will be the Océ suite of PRISMA workflow management software solutions, 
demonstrating how customers can more effectively manage commercial print workflow throughout the entire 
production process. PRISMA is an architected family of workflow management software that allows organizations 
to maximize the performance and cost-effectiveness of their multi-vendor operations independent of location, 
system or print device. 

At Graph Expo, Océ PRISMA solutions are implemented throughout Océ Booth 3200 in a variety of solution 
configurations, including Océ TrueProof software. Océ TrueProof provides 100 percent accurate dot-for-dot 
electronic matching of Océ VarioStream and Océ VarioPrint output. Front-to-back page registration is made 
clearly visible and measurable, eliminating the need for hard copy proofs, light tables and rulers.

Inc. "The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 bring best-in-class performance to their market segments and round out 
the functionality of the Océ VarioPrint 2000 family. As the powerhouses of the line, the two new systems deliver 
broad value to markets and applications across the board."

All-in-One Investment
The new systems replace the enormously successful Oce 3155 and 3165 models, which were among the first 
digital printers on the market and widely recognized for their extreme reliability. The Océ VarioPrint 2000 family 
provides cut-sheet imaging for multi-purpose networked or distributed document work centers, including office

possible performance. This reliable, versatile family of printers represents an all-in-one investment that can be 
used by more people more often for more purposes. Within one platform, the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 
provide top quality tools for both document input (scanning) and output (printing, copying). Full digitalization of 
the print flow, including "scan once, print many" functionality, saves time and boosts organizational productivity 
and responsiveness, both internally and to customers. 

Like other products in the Océ VarioPrint 2000 family, the new multi-function printers are superior in their ability to

scanning and one-pass duplexing. Increased reliability and output consistency are achieved through patented 
Océ Copy Press technology, which delivers the highest quality output available in the market today. Generous 
on-line paper and toner capacity minimize interruptions to attend to the machine, so frequent monitoring is not 
necessary. As a result, employees get more done in less time so they can focus on other mission-critical 
responsibilities. 

Improved Workflow for Variety of Applications
The new Océ VarioPrint models provide the most productive multifunctional technology to corporate and commercial 
print users in a variety of industries and markets. Finance, government, telecommunications, manufacturers, 
commercial printers, corporate print centers and many others will find the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 the ideal 
solutions for a myriad of today’s applications. The systems improve production workflow for high-quality office and 
on-demand applications like booklets, manuals, invoices, presentations, memos, personalized packets, reports, 
packing lists, and other documents needed by an enterprise. The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 support true 
convergence with the quality and versatility required for typical office documents, along with the security and 
productivity needed for transaction documents.

Government, legal and other markets will benefit from the digital on-demand printing of time-sensitive technical, 
legal, or regulatory documentation. These organizations gain the security of always having current content, along 
with reduced warehousing and inventory waste. Océ further accommodates organizations needing the highest 
security by providing a unique Digital Mailbox system and the optional assignment of a secure PIN code. 

With powerful functionality and simple operation, the new systems can be part of an established enterprise document 
strategy, or the growth path for companies just adopting digital output. Users at any level can operate the 
easy-to-handle systems. With their production-class performance, the systems are ideal for high-end office and 
centralized corporate printing environments needing monthly print, scan and copy volumes of up to a recommended 
300,000 impressions every month, and where ease of use, versatility, easy network integration, and seamless 
workflow are key requirements. The Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070 can also be used for printing tasks that are 
not cost-effective to assign to higher-speed production presses, such as proofs, or very short runs of documents.

Commercial Printers Gain Broader Service Offering
With the Océ VarioPrint 2060 and 2070, Océ gives quick printer and copy shops the tools to take on a wider 
range of value-added services and turn work around more quickly, while maintaining competitive quality and 
pricing. In print-for-pay production environments, uses can implement better workflow and increase operational 
efficiencies. Finishing and other competitive services such as scanning, archiving and variable data printing 
provide profitable growth opportunities. Impressive flexibility in copy materials and sizes expand possibilities for 
more applications from one system. Support for a wide range of paper formats and media types provide total 
versatility for all the jobs a commercial printer or central printing department might encounter.

Optional ScanLogic Software enables network scanning of analog documents and Océ Image Logic technology 
ensures optimal image quality. Together they help deliver the industry’s finest quality files to a customer’s network 
for complete document management capabilities.

The new systems can be operated in connection with Océ PRISMA+POD output management system, as well 
as Océ Doc Works Exec and Océ Office Exec to further optimize print-on-demand workflow. Users gain the 
ability to select print options and features without having to configure print devices. Océ software will intelligently

Océ Wins Award for Océ TDS Wide Format Printers

Chicago, IL, July 23, 2003  Océ (NASDAQ: OCENY), a leading supplier of digital document management and 
delivery technology, announced that Océ has received the BERTL’s Best Award for the Digital Monochrome 
Wide Format Printer Range of the Year 2003.  The award citation refers to the Océ TDS series printers as the 
product line that delivers outstanding flexibility and functionality suitable for a wide range of wide format printing 
purposes.

Versatile, well designed range

According to BERTL, Océ has received this award for its versatile, well-designed range of wide format digital 
imaging products.  These are varied enough to meet the needs of different sectors of the market, from low-end 
to professional-grade.  The three different systems in the Océ TDS line-up have a wide range of capabilities, 
offering wide format print solutions for every user.

Built to last for years

The build quality and durability of the Océ products also receive praise in the award citation.  "In today’s ‘
disposable’ marketplace, very few products are built to last for decades.  Océ’s wide format digital imaging 
devices are a notable exception to that rule.  The company builds its products to last for years.  For example,
the Océ TDS800 is guaranteed for 50 million square feet or 7 years.  Thanks to the use of high-grade components, 
the products last through years of abuse in busy print environment.  For these reasons, the Océ TDS400, Océ 
TDS600 and Océ TDS800 are BERTL’s Monochrome Wide Format Range of the Year 2003."

Commendable reputation for customer care

Reference is also made to Océ’s commendable reputation for customer care.  "The company is renowned for 
its excellent service and support, and has a reputation for solving problems that arise quickly, efficiently and to 
the satisfaction of the customer."

Image quality, reliability and productivity

Concluding its review of the Océ products, BERTL states that the Océ TDS400, Océ TDS600 and Océ TDS800 
systems are each targeted at a different segment of the wide format digital imaging industry.  "Taken as a whole, 
the product range is commendable for its capabilities, image quality, reliability and productivity."

The main criteria applied by BERTL in its product assessment are the quality of output, ease of use, cost and 
functionality.  Another important aspect when considering an entire product range is versatility, in terms of how 
well the range meets the needs of the lowest-level users and the quality of the highest-end solutions offered.

"We are honored to be distinguished among the world’s most reputable and prestigious leaders in the wide format 
digital imaging industry.  The BERTL’s Best award further underscores Océ’s enduring commitment to being a 
customer-focused, service-driven company with outstanding products and above all complete solutions designed 
to meet a wide range of client needs," said Mal Baboyian, President and CEO of Océ-USA, Inc.
