BRAMPTON, ON., May 16, 2017 – Canon, a world leader in imaging solutions, has announced the shipment and sale of the 6,000th printer in the industry-leading Océ Arizona Series of flatbed printers. The 6,000th printer is an Océ Arizona 2280 XT, the latest model in a range of products that has seen eight major platform introductions over the last ten years, in several different form factors, and in more than 120 configurations. The 6,000th Arizona printer joins thousands of other satisfied Arizona customers in almost 70 countries on six continents.
Océ and its distribution partners firmly established the mid-volume flatbed market with the introduction of the Océ Arizona 250 GT in 2007. As the first flatbed printer in the market to use grayscale, variable droplet piezoelectric printing technology, the new Arizona printer demonstrated print quality at a level that compelled more than 500 customers to purchase units in the first few months of availability and garnered awards from industry bodies the world over. Since 2007, the Arizona Series has been widely recognized for its industry-leading quality position in the flatbed market, winning more than 50 industry awards including 16 Product of the Year Awards from the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association, more than double the number of the next nearest competitor.
“The Océ Arizona Series has become an important tool for wide-format print production in the Canadian market” said Patrick D’Souza, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Canon Canada. “The reliable Arizona series printers have enabled our customers to produce high quality printed products ranging from fine art reproductions and retail point-of-purchase signage to industrialized product decoration. New applications from this technology platform are being discovered all the time and our customers are finding new ways to use them every day. Now, with over 6000 units installed globally, it really speaks to the level of trust our customers have in our products and our service teams.”
