Canon U.S.A., Inc. announced the new Arizona 2300 Series UV curable flatbed printers for the wide-format print market.
This series is designed to help customers speed up production, improve operational efficiencies and fuel growth opportunities through its new applications.
Featuring a true stationary flatbed table structure, this series is built around the entirely new Arizona FLOW technology, a unique vacuum technique that supports a zone-less, multi-origin table layout.
FLOW technology offers up to 20% more productivity, as it requires less masking and taping, and is supported by easy-to-use, three-sided pneumatic registration pins to better secure the substrate in place on the table.
Users can also easily and accurately print double-sided, as well as confidently print on odd-shaped, heavy, smooth or pre-cut media without the use of a jig.
For added convenience, no operator time is required for taping the media down.
Through its FLOW technology, printing on unusual and more challenging media, including canvas, wood and glass, or even printing large images tiled over multiple large boards, can be accomplished far easier than ever before.
Additionally, this series also provides customers with the ability to print up to 1,001 ft2/hr.
The Arizona 2300 offers UV-LED curing for 40% less energy consumption than Canon's traditional curing systems and has been safety-certified for the North American market by TÜV and DGUV.
The right ink droplet size is used across each print for low ink consumption, and the series’ UV inks have been UL GREENGUARD Gold certified, making prints safe for use in schools and hospitals. An air filtration option is also available to maintain a healthy working environment for customers with less than ideal surroundings.
“We are committed to the research and development of our flatbed series with a focus on smart productivity, application versatility and sustainability. With our customers in mind, the Arizona 2300 Series will make the production process smarter and more automated, enabling our customers to have the time to focus on what matters the most: growing their business,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive VP and GM, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the addition of the new Arizona 2300 series to our portfolio, we have a range of large format solutions to suit any and every print need of our customers. We are confident the new flatbed printers will enable them to boost profits, expand their application possibilities and open up new market opportunities while achieving operational excellence.”
The new Arizona 2300 Series became commercially available on Sept. 1, 2020.
