Landa’s new ultra-fast, offset-quality Landa Nanographic Printing® presses will offer digital printing at offset-competitive cost per print. The lineup of offset-quality Nanographic Printing® presses at drupa will include sheetfed presses running at 13000 B1 sheets per hour as well as one metre-wide (41 in.) web presses printing on plastic packaging films.
The company will also unveil Landa Nano-Metallography™, a zero-waste metallisation technology that will halve the cost of metallised printing compared to foil transfer processes. Landa’s quicker and simpler process will streamline the production of metallised print and improve customer profitability.
Landa Nano-Metallography™ is operable with the full spectrum of conventional printing technologies, including narrow-web flexo, offset and screen for the production of labels, sheetfed offset for folding carton and commercial printing, web-offset for publishing and wide-web flexo and gravure for flexible packaging.
‘Current metallisation processes are prohibitively expensive due to the high cost of foil and tremendous waste,’ said Benny Landa, Chairman of the Landa Group. ‘Our Nano-Metallography™ technology will enable metallisation at less than half the cost of foil, with zero-waste – and it’s microwave compatible. We expect this technology to be available to customers in 2017.’
