The Landa W10P Nanographic Printing press prints on virtually any coated or uncoated paper stock, ranging in weight from 30gsm to cardstock. Since Nanographic Printing creates zero strikethrough, the press produces magazine-quality printing even on the lightest, and cheapest, uncoated papers. Running at 200 metres/minute, it can print over two million magazine pages per 8-hour shift.
The press is ideal for high quality publishing applications such as magazines, journals, catalogues and direct mail. The metre-wide (41 in.) two-sided web press has twin printing engines, each with 4-8 colours.
‘Fourteen years of nanotechnology research has enabled us to make tremendous breakthroughs in the quality, speed and cost of digital printing. The Landa W10P Nanographic Printing® Press is up to 24 times faster than any other commercial quality digital press and can print more than two million magazine pages in a single 8-hour shift,’ said Landa Chairman, Benny Landa. ‘The Landa W10P is a technology platform that will help drive business growth and publisher profitability.’
Nanography® will enable customers to move their mainstream journal and magazine publishing, catalogs and direct mail pages from offset to digital, for a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) and improved margins. Magazine and journal publishers will leverage the technology’s benefits to offer more versatile products and attractive business models. The Landa W10P press will start shipping to customers in late 2017 and will not be shown at drupa 2016.
Throughout Drupa 2016, Landa will conduct live demonstrations of its sheetfed and webfed Nanographic Printing® Presses, including the Landa S10 for folding carton and POP, the Landa S10P perfecting press for commercial printing and the Landa W10 for flexible packaging. Landa will also be demonstrating its newest technology, Nano-Metallography®, a zero-waste metallisation process that will halve the cost of metallized printing.
