Digital document management and large format printing solutions provider Océ Display Graphics, Trumbull, Con., announces that Elmhurst-based Tree Towns Reprographics has installed the Arizona 550 GT flatbed printer.  The Arizona 550 GT replaces and upgrades Tree Towns’ highly successful Arizona 250 GT printer.

Oce 550 GT

The Océ Arizona 550 GT printer is the next-generation model in the award-winning Océ Arizona Series of UV flatbed printers.  It uses UV curable inks and Océ VariaDot  imaging technology to deliver near-photographic image quality for nearly any application, both indoors and outdoors.  Designed as a true flatbed system, it can print on a wide variety of oversized rigid substrates up to 98.4 by 49.2 inches and can print on board media up to 2” thick.

The Océ Arizona 550 GT printer features a Production print mode 3x faster than the 250 GT, up to 462 square feet per hour on rigid media.  The Arizona 550 GT prints without sacrificing any of the award-winning print quality for which the Océ Arizona Series is famous.  The 550 GT can also print in Economy print mode at up to 721 square feet per hour, or 22 four- by eight-foot boards per hour.

Tree Towns’ Océ Arizona 550 GT printer includes a White Ink Option that enables under-printing for non-white media or objects, over-printing for backlit applications on transparent media and/or printing white as a spot color. The ability to also print white ink as a spot color enables white features of images to be highlighted for greater effect.
