The Fascin8tor can print directly onto mesh without a liner for applications including outdoor billboards

The firm said the machine would deliver large-format prints with very low ink consumption, without compromising print quality and regardless of speed.

It is aimed at printers looking to increase their productivity, extend their application portfolio and maximise their job profitability.

The device, which prints at 1,200dpi and handles substrates up to 50mm thick, uses Gandy Digital’s Blade technology and combines eight Ricoh Gen4 printheads per colour.

The printer uses fixed dot printing, which the manufacturer said ensures cost-effective, high print quality in all printing modes and speeds.

The machine can print directly onto mesh without a liner for applications including outdoor billboards.

Gandy Digital managing director EMEA Shmulik Lagziel said: “The launch of Fascin8tor underscores our continued effort to deliver large-format print solutions that meet the direct needs of users.”

The Fascin8tor will be available to order from Fespa Digital – which takes place in Amsterdam from 8 to 11 March - and deliveries will start from June, to coincide with Drupa.

Pricing for the machine has not yet been disclosed.

Gandy Digital will also show a range of its other machinery at Fespa Digital (Hall 1, Booth H21) including the Softjet, a direct to fabric roll-to-roll sublimation printer that uses environmentally safe water-based inks, and the Sl8te, a hybrid roll-to-roll and flatbed LED printer.

Also on show will be the Termin8tor, a high-resolution roll-to-roll printer that prints at speeds of up to 320sqm/hr.

At last year’s Fespa, Gandy Digital launched large-format digital UV flatbed printer the Gladi8tor, which Lagziel said “proved a tremendous success”.
