Landa has broken cover to announce that it will show off several of its Nanographic printing presses running on its stand at drupa. But Landa has retained his sense of showmanship, demonstrating the presses in a theatre on the stand, with visitors having to reserve places in advance or take pot-luck at the exhibition.
Landa will show two versions of its B1 S10 sheetfed press, running at 13,000 B1 sheets per hour. One will be configured for folding carton and POP, while the S10P is a perfecting press for commercial printing.
Benny Landa himself commented: “Landa Nanographic printing presses produce offset quality, and now at offset speeds and offset-competitive cost per print – on virtually any paper stock.”
Landa will also show its one metre-wide W10 web press for flexible packaging and paperboard. This prints up to 8 colours at 200 metres per minute on plastic packaging films, paper, carton board and aluminum foil. Naturally, Landa claims that this will produce “gravure quality printing – at production speeds.”
Landa will also introduce a new technology, Nano-Metallography, a zero-waste metallization process that will halve the cost of metallized printing. Landa says that it can be used with most conventional printing technologies, including narrow-web flexo, offset and screen as well as wide-web flexo and gravure. It will be demonstrated on a narrow-web label press.
Landa will be taking orders for these presses at the show, with the first presses scheduled to ship in early 2017.
