Print pioneer Benny Landa has announced the launch of six new digital presses using his new Nanography technology at drupa. Shrouded in secrecy until yesterday, the process uses the NanoInk developed by Landa Corporation and promises 'to fundamentally change printing as we know it'.
In the sheet-fed market, the S5 is an entry-level B3 option offering single-sided printing at up to 11,000spm, while the B2-sized S7 extends this to 12,000spm with double-sided production. The S10, a B1 press, can also produce simplex folding carton applications.
Web media for commercial printing, labels and flexible packaging are catered for by the W5, W10 and W50 presses. The 22" (0.56m) W5 claims up to 200m/min single-sided on various label, film, foil and sleeve stocks, while the 40" (1.2m) W10 is pitched at mainstream packaging converters. The W50 takes NanoInk technology into the high-volume, double-sided field on coated or uncoated paper for a wide array of printed matter.
In an intriguing innovation, all six engines feature a 3m touchscreen control system with an intuitive UI. Key functions are represented through real-time status updates and images, while the Vital Signs Mode capability presents key indicators in large fonts for high visibility across the production floor.
