Landa Steals drupa Spotlight with Presses
The three web presses can print in up to eight colors and are aimed at commercial printing, publishing, labels, and flexible packaging:
• The Landa W5 Nanographic press is a 560 mm (22˝) web width press capable of single-sided printing at up to 200 m/min (656 ft/min) on plastic films and shrink sleeves (12 to 250 microns) and on label stocks, tube stocks, aluminum foil and paper (50 to 300 microns).
• The Landa W10 Nanographic press is a 1,020 mm (40˝) web width press, capable of single-sided printing at up to 200 m/min (656 ft/min) on film stock (12-250 microns) and on paper (50-300 microns). As Landa NanoInk will be FDA-compliant for food packaging, the W10 should be of interest to mainstream packaging.
• The Landa W50 Nanographic press is a 560 mm (22˝) web width press for high-volume, digital production and is capable of double-sided printing at up to 200 m/min (656 ft/min) on any coated or uncoated paper (40-300 gsm). It is ideally suited for publishing books, magazines, periodicals, annual reports, journals, directories, manuals, direct mail with personalization and versioning...and more.
"Landa Nanographic printing presses are intended not to replace offset printing, but to complement it. For the foreseeable future, offset printing will continue to be the preferred method for producing run lengths of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands," Landa added. "But the market is demanding shorter and shorter run lengths—and that's where Nanography comes in—to enable print service providers to produce those short to medium run lengths economically—at offset speeds. That's what we mean when we say that Landa Nanographic Printing brings digital to the mainstream."
