EFI and Landa Form Strategic Alliance

Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI, and Benny Landa, Chairman and CEO of Landa Corp., conclude their strategic agreement for Landa's new high-performance DFE powered by EFI Fiery technology.

Landa also commented: “Our unique Nanographic Printing process enables us to offer offset-quality digital printing and a combination of format size and throughput speeds unprecedented in the graphic arts industry. Reaching this remarkable and exciting goal requires partnering with best-in-class providers. That is the reason we chose Fiery technology and EFI as our development partner—to deliver the highest quality ultra-high-speed front-end platform to match the quality and performance of our Nanographic Printing presses.”

End-to-end digital printing solution for mainstream applications

Landa selected EFI because of its technology leadership and expertise in high-speed digital systems and color and print management. Landa customers can use the new DFE to create an end-to-end solution that naturally fits into their printing operation, whether full offset, all-digital or hybrid offset/digital.

Landa Nanographic Printing Presses will be installed next to offset presses and use the same substrates. With the new DFE, Landa Nanographic Printing Presses will integrate into a printer’s existing prepress, production, and business management workflow and finishing equipment. The Landa DFE will also ensure consistency, accuracy and compliance to leading color standards. It will enable high-speed, variable-data printing on any off-the-shelf B1 format (41″/1,050 mm) substrate.

High-end processing with integrated workflow capabilities

As with current EFI Fiery platforms, the new DFE will integrate with EFI’s industry-leading MIS/ERP systems, as well as with leading third-party prepress and workflow platforms, for streamlined job
management and processing.

Fiery is the first and only DFE platform that carries a 100 percent perfect pass rating from industry organization VIGC’s PDF RIP Audit. The Fiery DFE technology EFI is developing for Landa will use scalable, robust systems offering the processing power needed to drive large volumes of offset-quality digital images, including personalized/variable-data content.

The new Landa DFE will enter beta testing as part of the beta installations of the B1 (41″/1,050 mm) format Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press slated for Q4 of this year.
