Landa Reveals Press Upgrades, Shipment Schedule
REHOVOT, ISRAEL—Landa announced major developments to its Landa S10FC and S10C Nanographic printing presses, enhancing print quality and upgrading the press design.
"We have been working closely with our customers to ensure that our Nanographic printing presses will provide the performance, print quality and feature set for high-speed production," said Landa Founder, Chairman and CEO Benny Landa. "In addition, the new Landa Operator Cockpit will set a new standard for operating any production press, whether digital or offset."
Research and customer collaboration have led to a new concept in press operability and the addition of several new features. The Landa Operator Cockpit, an integrated production management center located at the delivery end of the press, enables operators to monitor and control the press. Operator-centric with ergonomic design, the Landa Operator Cockpit surrounds the operator with touchscreen press controls, job management tools, video feeds from all key press functions, production-related vital signs and a lighted inspection table.
New ink ejectors improve print quality and increase press productivity. With a resolution of 1,200 dpi, they boast higher print quality levels that match offset resolution and gray levels. In addition, the new ink ejector architecture improves the reliability of the ink ejection and enables redundancy in case of nozzle failure.
Additional developments and features include:
• Advanced paper handling system—An automatic paper handling system supports both paper and plastic substrates. Reducing many of the labor-intensive tasks related to paper setup, it also accelerates the changeover to new substrates and maximizes uptime. Continuous paper feeding and delivery capabilities let converters and printers operate without stopping to replace the paper pile. An auxiliary delivery tray will enable operators to automatically collect proofs without interrupting the normal production process.
• Optional inline coating unit—An optional conventional inline coating unit will enhance Nanography-printed products with both flood and selective coating. The coating unit will support flexo rollers and plates, as well as a variety of UV and aqueous coatings.
