Press release from the issuing company

New Gandy Digital Pred8tor+ high adhesion UV ink enables increased application durability and profitability

Gandy Digital, the Canadian manufacturer of market-leading digital inkjet large format printers, will launch its latest UV flatbed printer at FESPA 2015 (Hall 7 Booth #M26). Offering ground-breaking production flexibility through multiple speed and colour configurations, the new Gandy Digital UV flatbed printer will enable customers to dramatically increase productivity, application variety and job profitability – all with a very short return on investment time. 

Gandy Digital will also premier its new Pred8tor+ high adhesion UV ink, enabling increased productivity and the production of a wide range of durable and profitable indoor and outdoor large format applications. Ideal for flat and rollable signage and graphics printed on to acrylic and coroplast or corrugated plastic, the new Gandy Digital Pred8tor+ high adhesion inks minimise print cracking caused by graphic transportation. This reduces the need for costly reprints and enables print houses to boost profitability and increase customer service.

Showcasing roll-to-roll and UV flatbed printers including the flagship Domin8tor, Sl8te and the fabric roll-to-roll sublimation printer, SoftJet, Gandy Digital will also highlight its market-leading customer support programme - driving market confidence and facilitating recent Gandy Digital business growth.

Shmulik Lagziel, Managing Director EMEA, Gandy Digital comments: “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.
