Various optional input and output configurations

As versatile as Oce Arizona 318 GL printer is in its base configuration, several popular options are available to enable even more possibilities.

White Ink Option (factory-installed)

The Oce Arizona 318 GL flatbed printer has an available factory-installed White Ink Option. This popular option, allows users to print any combination of color and white ink in 2 or 3 layers simultaneously, on rigid or flexible media. The high-value application possibilities include backlit images and specialty prints on any non-white media or the printing of almost any flat object imaginable. It even supports Day/Night imaging for prints that are alternatively back or front lit, such as restaurant menu boards. And of course, white can also be printed as a spot color.

Roll Media Option

The Roll Media Option offers new possibilities for all Oce Arizona family UV printers. Supporting flexible media rolls from 90 to 220 cm wide, it features printing on almost any flexible media including banner vinyl, self-adhesive vinyl, paper, textiles, backlit films, window cling, canvas and more.

Static Suppression Option

Customers with very dry environments may experience excessive static electricity on hard plastics such as acrylic and polycarbonate rigid sheets.  The Static Suppression Upgrade Kit provides the ability to print on sheets with excessive static without compromising image quality, or slowing the printer.

The Océ Arizona 318 GL prints with a minimum environmental impact

The Océ Arizona 318 GL printer complies with a long list of health and safety directives and standards covering a range of topics from electric and mechanical safety to electrical and particulate emissions and immunity. These include CE, TÜV (equivalent to UL, CSA and others), Berufsgenossenschaft and more. It also complies with the European RoHS directives for heavy metal content.

The Océ Arizona 318 GL uses UV curable inks that do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOC) and require only office grade ventilation; reducing the volume of air that must be heated/cooled from the printing environment, resulting in substantial energy savings. The Océ Arizona 318 GL also consumes less than 16 Amps of electricity at 220/240 VAC, which is less than half that of many competitive systems.

Finally the Océ Arizona 318 GL does not require an external source of compressed air, making the operational and energy costs even lower.
