Wide-format equipment manufacturer Gandy Digital will launch its Pred8tor+ high-adhesion UV ink and a new UV flatbed printer at next month’s Fespa 2015 exhibition in Cologne.
The manufacturer said the ink will enable increased productivity and the production of a wide range of durable and profitable indoor and outdoor large-format applications.
The ink, which is suitable for flat and rollable signage and graphics printed onto acrylic and corrugated plastic, is said to minimise print cracking caused by graphic transportation.
The company will also unveil a new UV flatbed printer at the show. Although few details about the machine have been released so far, Gandy said it will offer high production flexibility through multiple speed and colour configurations, which will enable customers to significantly increase their productivity and profitability.
Other products on show on the firm’s Fespa stand will include the Domin8tor and Sl8te UV flatbed printers and the recently launched SoftJet fabric roll-to-roll sublimation printer.
Gandy Digital EMEA managing director Shmulik Lagziel said: “At Fespa 2014 we launched our new high-volume printers, Pred8tor and Domin8tor, with a host of new features including a crash sensor, high-density inks and upgraded software. These provided huge speed advantages as well as increased application and competitive capabilities.
“Thanks to these advanced product features, we enjoyed huge growth in 2014 with sales up by 50%. Having listened to customers, and with additional and significant R&D investment, we go to Fespa 2015 with new and exciting technology and a portfolio of products that will enable our customers to continue to succeed and grow.”
Gandy Digital will be exhibiting in Hall 7, Booth M26 at Fespa, which will take place in Cologne, Germany from 18-22 May.
