And because uptime is paramount to any print business, the Arizona 135 GT has a number of service features to ensure maximum uptime: the Automated Maintenance System provides hands-free print head maintenance and selective nozzle recovery in seconds, while On Remote Service allows the user to approve remote support from certified and experienced service technicians, which ensures the highest uptime.
Create high-margin applications on a wealth of media
Thanks to Arizona flatbed technology and the series’ UV-LED curing, a comprehensive range of durable applications can be manufactured on both rigid and flexible media with standard and porous surfaces, including glass, aluminum and other metals, canvas, wood, MDF, cardboard, tiles and plastic. With the accessory Arizona Static Suppression Upgrade Kit, the Arizona 135 GT can also print on hard plastic materials, such as acrylic, polycarbonate and styrene, while the Arizona Classic high-pressure vacuum system provides extremely reliable retention of media under print, and even skewed rigid media can be pulled down. And you can access even more options with the roll media feature, which can be upgraded on-site to create flexible media applications.

Achieve new levels of creativity with the Arizona Xpert prepress software
Arizona Xpert prepress software is included with the Arizona 135 GT, allowing users to design and produce high-value applications effortlessly. The software includes ready-made recipes to easily create applications, and it allows users to exchange recipes directly with customers, allowing designers to preview the final product with a 3D view in Arizona Xpert Extensions, minimizing design flaws. Arizona’s approach to print – “First time Right”, leads to less waste and fewer expensive errors, which in turn leads to better margins and faster turnaround times.
Arizona Xpert also offers the ability to produce even more cost-effective applications with structured surfaces – and to print applications with multiple ink layers.
Access to a sustainable flatbed printing solution
The Arizona 135 GT’s VariaDot technology uses variable droplet sizes between 6 and 30 picoliters. Thus, it not only produces razor-sharp images, but it also means that the Arizona printing process consumes up to 50% less ink compared to traditional flatbed printers. This makes the Arizona 135 GT an both environmentally and price-wise attractive investment. The unit’s environmental credentials include the use of UL GREENGUARD Gold-certified inks for all kinds of indoor applications, such as in schools and retail, and the low emissions also contribute to a healthier printing environment. In addition, the Arizona 135 GT has a low power consumption due to its Instant-On functionality and a short warm-up time thanks to its LED lamps. Among the energy-saving features are also its standard power supply voltage, an energy-efficient curing process and power-saving vacuum pumps. Finally, the new Arizona will, over time, be included in the Arizona Remanufacturing program so that this highly sustainable flatbed printer can have a different life.
