In line with its tradition of being pioneers in the field of out-of-home printing, Metro Multimedia Technologies (Digital) – MMT (D) – has recently installed India’s first Océ Arizona 250 GT at it’s production facility located in New Delhi.
The Océ Arizona 250 GT, a UV curable flatbed and roll-to-roll inkjet printer, opens the door for producing specialised applications that command premium prices. It uses UV curable inks to print on rigid media up to 1.25 m wide x 2.5m long x 48 mm thick (49” wide x 98” long x 1.89” thick). A vacuum system holds media stationary on a flat surface, ensuring perfect registration even on multiple imaging passes or double-sided printing applications. It can print full bleeds, saving time and labour costs in finishing. Plus there is no minimum print size so substrate waste is fully eliminated.
Unlike conventional rigid capable printers that use friction or belt feed systems, the Océ Arizona 250 GT can print on just about anything. UV curable inks enable printing on inexpensive, uncoated, rigid and flexible media. This system can handle irregularly shaped or nonsquare items, heavy substrates and materials with an uneven surface, like wood.
It also helps to reduce operating costs through Océ VariaDot imaging technology, which uses 4-colour inks instead of 6-colour inks. Two less ink colours and lower ink consumption results in ink savings of up to 50 percent over fixed-droplet, 6-colour printers.
