The ISA show in Las Vegas April 4th-6th will see the first showing of Gandy's 'Viper'. The company says it will change the speciality printing market by introducing 'on the fly' digital LED UV printing to multi-surfaced objects which would previously have been an expensive, wasteful and time consuming process.

The 'Viper' has a minimal setup cost and utilizes a 24x24 (600mm x 600mm) inch print area  and jig which is bespoke to your merchandise. The jig is interchangeable and mounted to the 24x24  print plate producing perfect registration every time.
Printing on the Viper enables different key-ways of the product to be produced at the same time.
Gandy ViperMaterials and products printed on the Viper range from ipad covers to iphone cases, key chains  to golf balls. Almost anything can be printed on the 'Viper' with a height of 12 inches (300 mm)  or less. Gandy Engineerings 'Viper' also has a low ink consumption which yields a higher ROI.
The 'Viper' uses a 6 colour configuration driven by Ricoh Gen 4 print heads which deliver a 6 pl droplet.
A '2' or '3' droplet per pixel mode is also available producing higher ink densities when required  for specific applications. The operator can also choose to print solid 4 colour with 2 inline rows of white at the same time with a final print speed of 80 seconds per bed (24''x24'' jig).
There is no loss in production printing at either 4 color or 4 color and white modes. Printing with  UV ink offers the end user excellent adhesion and durability on a wide gamut of plastics and materials.
Automatic ink level monitoring is displayed 'live' on the specially designed GUI with full control  on the Apple iPad (industry first).
Laser controlled head height censoring eliminates the risk of expensive head strikes, nozzle damage  and down time. To improve print resolution and clarity even more the 'Viper' is also equipped as standard with an 'anti static system' and uses the latest UV curing technology with LED UV lights.
This curing process produces no heat which is beneficial to heat sensitive plastics and materials.
Colour Configurations available:
4C - C,M,Y,K.
4CR - C,M,Y,K, Clear.
4WCR - C,M,Y,K, White, Clear.
4WW - C,M,Y,K, White, White.
