Gandy Digital's high resolution UV Flatbed with Roll to Roll capability, Pred8tor, introduced less than 6 months ago has quickly become a popular choice among the major printers across the world. Evolve Group in its effort to expand its capability and offer more services to its multi national clients chose the Pred8tor for its ability to print the sharpest images never available before on a large format printer. Glynn Frodsham, Chairman of Evolve Group says "the Pred8tor was a natural fit. Now we can print in store displays and at the same time product labels and brochures with sharp text equal to offset quality giving us the ability to fully service our customers varied needs." "The Pred8tor has great speed giving a quick turn around was a great added benefit, not to mention the extremely friendly user interface with the portable I-Pad". " the Pred8tor is a true Flatbed with Roll to Roll capability gives Evolve Group great flexibility that we can offer to our customers."
The 'Domin8tor' goes from 'Strength to Strength'.
Gandy Digital success story continues at Drupa with 3 Domin8tor printers sold to Grafimon and Zwart op Wit in Belgium and Sitton in Israel.
The Domin8tor with its new larger 2m X 3.05m print size, UV Flatbed, has caught the attention of 2 Gandy Digital existing customers who already own and appreciate the quality and ease of use of the Pred8tor.
Johan from Grafimon in Belgium says the bigger print size will be a great compliment to their Pred8tor. Johan couldn't believe how Gandy Digital is able to print such crisp lettering on a bigger table size than the Pred8tor 1.22m X 2.44m print size. Johan says "we can now consider digital printing as an alternative to offset / litho printing". Johan also mentioned the time saving feature of automatic head height adjustment as this allows Grafimon to change materials quickly without the tedious job of manually measuring.
Oren from Sitton was excited with the larger print size on the Domin8tor as it is possible to print two 1.5m X 2m panels at one time. This gives Sitton even more speed and flexibility in his production. Sitton also needed more production as the quality of the Pred8tor has allowed him to do more of his customers needs, especially the smaller prints used in many in store displays and even his customers product literature.
Oren mentioned how the automatic head cleaning was a great time and print head saver as there is no chance of error. Oren is also ordering the automatic loading and unloading that will be available from Gandy Digital. The Domin8tor is the second new model introduced by the Innovator of the year, James Gandy in less than a year. The first model Pred8tor already has many units installed worldwide with great results.
