PLATE-FREE GRAVURE QUALITY

The webfed Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press offers gravure quality printing with the efficiency and versatility of plate-free digital printing on a broad range of substrates from plastic packaging films to metal foils, from paper to carton. High-resolution ink ejectors printing at 1,200 dpi ensure exceptional color definition and multiple gray levels. Printed images appear vivid, sharp, and uniform, rivaling anything produced with gravure or flexography.

 

The Landa W10 press is equipped with Landa’s Active Quality Management (AQM) that maximizes the quality of every print. A unique solution developed by Landa together with AVT, Techkon and EFI, Landa Active Quality Management automatically scans each printed sheet, identifies defects (e.g., color consistency, print uniformity, registration, missing nozzles, etc.) and initiates corrective action where applicable – all without any operator intervention.

 

SHARPNESS AND COLOR BEYOND COMPARE

 

The Landa Nanography® process offers unprecedented dot sharpness and color uniformity compared to inkjet or offset lithography technologies. (Note: images are actual microscopic photographs.)

Technology

MAINSTREAM FLEXIBLE PACKAGING PRODUCTIVITY

The Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press delivers true mainstream flexible packaging production using large format and off-the-shelf plastics and other substrates – without any pretreatment or priming. With throughput that reaches up to five times that of other digital presses, it frees up your flexo equipment to do what it does best – long-run production.

Integrating seamlessly into your existing operation, the Landa W10 press works side by side with your flexo/analog equipment – no special clean room environment is required.

 

ADVANCED DFE FOR ANY ENVIRONMENT

The unique Landa DFE® (digital front end) fits naturally into any environment whether analog only, digital-only or hybrid analog/digital. Based on the leading EFI Fiery® technology, the Landa DFE brings digital print quality and performance to new heights. The DFE is tightly integrated with the Landa press software to ensure frictionless communication between prepress, print and finishing operations. The Landa DFE connects to upstream prepress automation applications and ERP/MIS systems, as well as downstream finishing equipment.

Twenty-First Century USER EXPERIENCE

The Landa W10 press offers a breakthrough in user experience with an ergonomic, intuitive feel that requires minimal training for press operators. The standalone Landa Operator Control Station offers at-a-glance access to all functions and allows the operator to quickly view the press status, monitor the delivery, inspect output, and view real-time video feeds of printing inside the press.

 

In addition, when the operator is away from the W10 console, a digital tablet enables the operator to monitor the press vital signs and perform remote maintenance and troubleshooting.

THE LOWEST TCO FOR DIGITAL PACKAGE PRODUCTION

By significantly reducing operating costs compared to other digital printing solutions, the Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press offers the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). It supports off-the-shelf plastic packaging films, metal foils, paper and carton substrates, without any pretreatment or priming—just like analog solutions based on gravure or flexography.

 

The Landa W10 press uses a four-color process system (CMYK) and highly opaque white, using low cost, water-based inks to create brilliantly colored, high-coverage images. The color process system can be extended to seven colors (CMYK+OBG) to increase the color gamut and practically eliminate the need for spot colors, and the related time spent on creating and mixing colors and on-press color switching. The Nanographic Printing® process also yields minimal waste, eliminating the need for plates or make-ready.
