The Océ Arizona 550 GT printer, the latest addition to the Océ Arizona family, the world’s best-selling UV flatbed printers for the display graphics market, will be the star attraction on Océ’s stand at Sign & Digital UK in Halls 6-8 at the NEC, Birmingham, from 13-15 April 2010.

The Océ Arizona 550 GT printer will be among numerous state-of-the-art technologies and products being showcased on Océ’s Stand E10 in Hall 8 at the show.

The Océ Arizona 550 GT UV curable flatbed printer, the highest-capacity model yet to be released, can produce prints at 40sq metres per hour, twice as fast as any previous models in the series. It will have pride of place alongside the Océ Arizona 350 GT UV curable flatbed printer, both powered by ONYX® ProductionHouse™ Océ Edition market-leading RIP software.

Other products at Sign & Digital UK will include the Océ ColorWave® 600 printer – the first high-speed TonerPearl® colour printer using patented Océ CrystalPoint® technology. Solutions for creating durable graphics on coated and uncoated media will also be shown.

At the show, Océ, an international leader in digital document management and delivery, will be partnering Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for Zünd Systems Technik AG, the Swiss manufacturer of digital flatbed cutters. The two companies will be displaying the Zünd G3 L2500 digital cutting system.  Products from Océ Imaging Supplies will also be shown, and Océ will host daily competitions, in which prizes will be awarded to visitors.

Océ and its partners will use the event to demonstrate the latest labour-saving innovations, designed to reduce waste and increase productivity. There will also be online access to the popular Océ Media Guide (www.mediaguide.oce.com), which provides detailed advice and guidance that helps printing professionals select the best media for their printers and applications.

Derek Joys, Océ UK’s Display Graphics Systems’ Programme Manager, said: “Once again our stand will be a must-see part of the show experience for all our customers and prospects, as well as other visitors. Sign & Digital UK is an important platform for us to demonstrate with world-leading technologies our commitment to this all-important market sector.”
