Rehovot, Israel, March 24, 2016 – Landa has announced that it will unveil its new Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press for flexible packaging at Drupa 2016. The meter-wide (41 in.), high-speed web press prints up to 8 colors at 200 meters per minute (656 ft/min) on plastic packaging films, paper, carton board and aluminum foil.
“Fourteen years of nanotechnology research has enabled us to make tremendous breakthroughs in the quality, speed and cost of printing for flexible packaging. The Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press produces gravure quality printing – at production speeds – on a broad range of substrates from plastic packaging films to metal foils, from paper to carton. Finally, there is a solution that meets the needs of the flexible packaging industry for affordable short-to-medium run lengths of highest gravure-quality packaging materials – with flexo-competitive costs and productivity,” says Benny Landa, Chairman of the Landa Group. ”We expect visitors to our stand at Drupa to be completely blown away by the amazing performance of this press – for which we will be taking orders at Drupa.”
