Gandy Digital of Mississauga officially launched its new Gladi8tor UV flatbed inkjet printer during the FESPA 2015 trade show in Cologne, Germany. The system features what the company refers to as an inline 8-blade print head configuration, which allows for a double CMYK set-up to deliver twice the speed – up to 240 square metres – relative to the company’s Domin8tor and Pred8tor models.

The new Gandy Gladi8tor provides a double white ink capability to address issues of white ink density on transparent or non-white substrates. It also offers a new layered print option for the production of multi-layered colour images and white. Gandy explains the Gladi8tor’s ability to sandwich white or doubled-sided banners with white and black between images, allows for the production of new applications like backlit jobs.

The new Gladi8tor, incorporating a vacuum table, is available in two print widths. The Gladi8tor 1224 has a print size of 1.22 x 2.44 metres (4 x 8 feet) and the Gladi8tor 2030 has a print size of 2 x 3.05 metres (6.6 x 10 feet). The Gladi8tor 1224 also comes with a 2.44-metre (8-foot) wide roll-to-roll option.

Using 6-piolitre variable dot Ricoh printheads, the Gladi8tor is available in two production settings, with the first using six colours (CMYK&LM&LC) plus double white and the second using eight colours and a double CMYK set-up to deliver twice the speed. With automatic head height adjustment, customers can also print on a range of substrates of up to 50 mm (two inches) thick.
