Canon launches new Arizona 135 GT UV

Print Solutions

Canon has launched the new Arizona 135 GT flatbed printer, offering sign makers, print companies and offset and screen printers, a smart technology investment to fulfil new business opportunities. Whether you are starting out in the rigid applications, large format graphics industry or are looking to further diversify into new applications, the Arizona 135 GT delivers the benefits of the Arizona series – high image quality, impressive productivity and reliability, application versatility and excellent total cost of ownership – at a smart investment level.

Manufactured with the same industrial build quality and heritage as all other Arizona models, the 135 GT further demonstrates its value by being able to create impressive applications across an extensive range of not only rigid media but, with its field upgradable Roll Media Option, of flexible media too.

Designed for productivity and application versatility, the easy to use Arizona 135 GT produces exceptional image quality. This is thanks to its VariaDot greyscale printing technology, which uses advanced drop size selection techniques to deliver photorealistic images. With the ability to handle substrates of up to 125 x 250 cm in size and up to 50.8 mm thick and to print at speeds of up to 34.2 m² per hour, the 135 GT is a smart investment from just 2000 m² per year.

The productivity of the Arizona 135 GT is enhanced by its functionality, including nesting, batching of complex jobs, step and repeat, mirroring and reassignment of print modes. Accurate print registration avoids errors and the ability to make last minute adjustments at the printer saves valuable time. And with uptime being crucial to any print operation, the Arizona 135 GT incorporates a number of service features to maximise availability: Automated Maintenance System provides hands free printhead maintenance and selectively restores nozzle function in seconds; while On Remote Service allows the user to authorise remote assistance by experienced service technicians, ensuring the highest possible uptime.

Thanks to Arizona flatbed technology and its UV-LED curing, a vast range of durable applications are achievable on rigid or flexible media with standard or porous surfaces, including glass, aluminium and other metals, canvas, wood, MDF, cardstock, ceramic tiles and plastics. The optional Arizona Static Suppression Upgrade Kit also enables the a 135 GT to print on hard plastic materials, such as acrylic, polycarbonate and styrene, while the Arizona Classic high pressure vacuum system provides extremely reliable media hold down during printing, even for warped rigid media. Even more opportunities are accessible with the flatbed printer’s field upgradeable Roll Media Option. This allows users to produce flexible media applications up to 220 cm wide, including thin and heat sensitive media, and to run roll to roll jobs unattended overnight.

The 135 GT comes with Arizona Xpert pre-press software, enabling the design and production of high value applications with ease. Including ready made recipes for easy to create applications, the software allows users to exchange recipes directly with customers, so that designers can preview the end product with a 3D view in the Arizona Xpert Extensions, minimising design errors. The approach to first time right printing leads to less waste and fewer costly mistakes which, in turn, leads to better overall margins and faster turnaround times. Xpert also offers further high margin opportunities for textured surface prints – the ability to print applications with multiple ink layers.

The Arizona 135 GT’s VariaDot technology uses variable drop sizes from 6 to 30 picolitres. Not only does this produce pin sharp images but it also means that the a printing process consumes as much as 50% less ink than regular flatbed printers.
