Canon Océ Arizona 1280 GT

Canon Océ Arizona 1280 GT

Building on its market-leading predecessor, the new Océ Arizona® 1280 GT true flatbed printer offers unparalleled image quality alongside outstanding versatility across both flexible and rigid media applications.


The ultimate print quality

The Océ Arizona 1200 series of printers, including the new Arizona 1280 GT, takes the industry-leading Océ Arizona 400 series to a new level. The Arizona 1280 GT represents the highest quality true flatbed printer designed for mid-volume users. With its award-winning 8 channel Océ VariaDot Imaging Technology, the Arizona 1280 GT can use Light Cyan and Light Magenta inks to deliver the smoothest highlights and quartertones for fine art and photographic applications, or it can use the proven CM² ink configuration for fast and smooth production printing as demanded by sign and display applications.


Sustained quality across all media

By enhancing the Arizona range’s industry-proven true flatbed architecture, the Arizona 1280 GT delivers stunning print quality on rigid media. For added versatility, choose the integrated Roll Media Option to achieve uncompromising print quality with flexible media applications. You’re assured of accurate, uniform print geometry across the entire print area thanks to Active Pixel Placement Compensation.


Breathtaking application versatility

With the ability to print on a wide variety of media and objects, print service providers can capture revenue from a wide range of applications. The Arizona 1280 GT includes white ink for printing on non-white or transparent media and varnish for access to high value applications using spot varnish. Enjoy offering applications including standard sign and display (POP/POS, retail signage and backlit signs) through to specialist applications where the decorated substrate is not meant primarily for display purposes, e.g. package prototyping, short run and custom packaging, membrane switch overlays, relief printing, and object decoration. Maximise revenues by creating complete full mixed-media campaigns with just one Arizona 1280 GT.


Flexible, versatile and productive

With its standard table size, almost any imaginable assignment is easy to achieve using media or objects of any size – up to 50.8mm thick and as large as 1.25m x 2.5m. Adding the Roll Media Option extends your choice of applications to almost any flexible media up to 2.2m wide. An optional innovative Automated Printhead Maintenance System provides completely hands-free printhead cleaning in less than 25 seconds per colour, ensuring consistent nozzle performance print after print. The third-generation UV curing system ensures impressive results with even the thinnest, most heat-sensitive media. Impress customers and work more efficiently using the high-speed Production Fast mode that delivers high-quality output at an impressive 26.0 m²/h.


Superb reliability and precision

You’ll rapidly achieve beautiful prints time after time thanks to the Arizona 1280 GT’s smart productivity features. Pneumatic registration pins on the flatbed table enable consistent and easy loading of rigid media in perfect register. While a six-zone vacuum system, optimised for standard rigid media sizes, virtually eliminates the need for manual table masking.


Enhanced ease of operation

Great new printing operations such as Step and Repeat and Mirror are now available on the printer’s control panel. So you can easily make last minute adjustments to your production plan. An updated vacuum system provides both high-flow vacuum for effective pull-down of warped rigid media and high-pressure vacuum for reliable media hold-down during printing.


Machine type
Mid-volume UV flatbed printer

Printing method
Piezoelectric inkjet

Number of nozzles
8-channel piezoelectric inkjet system with one 636-nozzle, variable droplet printhead per channel.

Ink configuration

Image technology
piezoelectric inkjet system with variable droplet printheads

Print resolution
Variable droplet sizes from 6 to 42 picolitres. The ability to vary the drop size to 6 picolitres produces sharp images with smoother gradients and quartertones. The ability to jet larger droplets up to 42 picolitres produces uniform colors. The result is near-photographic quality with sharpness only before seen at resolutions of 1,440 dpi or higher. Text as small as 2 pt. is perfectly legible (with High Definition mode).
