Landa has announced its lineup of offset quality nanographic printing presses at drupa, that will include sheetfed presses running at 13,000 B1 sph, as well as 1 meter-wide (41˝) web presses printing on plastic packaging films. The company will also unveil Landa Nano-Metallography, a zero-waste metallization technology that will halve the cost of metallized printing compared to foil transfer processes.
Landa will double the size of its drupa 2016 stand to 3,000 sq. m. and will conduct live demonstrations of all of its nanographic printing presses, including the Landa S10 sheetfed press for folding carton and point-of-purchase, the Landa S10P perfecting press for commercial printing, and the Landa W10 web press for flexible packaging and paperboard. Landa will also be introducing its newest technology, Nano-Metallography, a zero-waste metallization process that will halve the cost of metallized printing, demonstrated on a narrow-web label press.
Landa will hold theater presentations five times a day for the entire duration of the exhibition. Reservations can be requested in advance at www.landanano.com/drupa, or, subject to availability, may be booked at kiosks on the Landa stand (Hall 9) during the exhibition.
"Fourteen years of nanotechnology research has enabled us to make tremendous breakthroughs in the quality, speed and cost of printing. Landa nanographic printing presses produce offset quality, and now at offset speeds and offset-competitive cost per print — on virtually any paper stock. This research has also spawned a new technology, Nano-Metallography, which will enable metallization graphics at less than half the cost of foil, with zero waste — and is quicker and simpler to use," says Benny Landa, chairman of the Landa Group. "We expect visitors to our stand at drupa to be completely blown away by the amazing performance of these products — for which we will be taking orders at drupa. Our presses will start shipping in early 2017."
Deborah Corn, PI blogger, principal and chief blogger to The Printerverse for Print Media Centr, and print production and integrated project manager, had the opportunity to recently speak with Benny Landa, and Yishai Amir, CEO, The Landa Group, to discuss the new presses and technology that are sure to be the epicenter of drupa 2016 buzz.

Headed by Indigo founder, Benny Landa, the Landa Group is comprised of four units: Landa Digital Printing, whose nanographic printing presses bridge the industry's "Profitability Gap", cost-effectively combining the versatility of digital with the qualities and speed of offset to produce short- to medium-runs with the lowest cost per digitally printed page in the industry; Landa Labs, the group's innovation arm, which explores nanotechnology for use in alternative energy, industrial coatings, cosmetics, packaging, drug delivery and other fields; Landa Ventures, which invests in early stage companies with complementary disruptive technology; and the Landa Fund, which helps underprivileged youth pursue higher education. Benny Landa continues to add to his portfolio of over 800 patents worldwide that provide the companies he founded with a solid intellectual property base.
