The Landa S10P Nanographic Printing Press with perfector is aimed at printers concentrating on two-sided general commercial printing, including advertising pieces, catalogue production, direct mail and high-end magazines. Enabling just-in-time mainstream efficiency, the B1 format Landa S10P press prints on off-the-shelf substrates at speeds of up to 13,000 sheets/hour. It comes with a brand new DFE developed by EFI.
The Landa Nanography process offers brilliant dot sharpness and colour uniformity. In addition, expanding the 4-colour (CMYK) system to a 7-colour “high-definition” (CMYK+OBG) system practically eliminates the need for spot colours, the time spent on creating and mixing colours, and on-press colour switching.
And Landa’s DFE (Digital Front End) enables the press to fit naturally into any environment – full offset, digital-only and hybrid offset/digital. The DFE inside the Landa S10P is based on EFI Fiery technology, but it’s brand new. The Landa DFE connects to leading upstream applications such as web-to-print and MIS systems, as well as to production workflow and downstream finishing equipment.
Key benefits of the Landa DFE include:
- Driving 4-8 colour printing with Landa’s Nanographic Printing Press at 13,000 SPH
- Supporting the unique requirements of the packaging, commercial printing and publishing markets
- High-speed production of today’s most sought-after job types, from single copy jobs, to versioned jobs, to variable data printing (VDP) and every-page-is-different (EPID)
- Built-in, open standards connectivity for streamlining operations in a versatile workflow environment.
The machine itself is touted to have a very low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), the ability to print on all off-the-shelf substrates with no pre-treatment and have the industry’s broadest colour gamut. The Landa Touchscreen, a large user interface, is said to enable even an untrained operator to quickly master the press. Operators will find machine controls on either side of the screen to enable operation from either the feeder or delivery end of the press. Graphic displays include job management information and real-time status of every function on the press.
