Leading European packaging printer Edelmann Group (Heidenheim, Germany) and Landa Digital Printing (Rehovot, Israel) have announced that 60 leading converters and printers from around the world attended an open house at Edelmann’s Heidenheim facility recently to see Europe’s first Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press producing commercial jobs at 6,500 B1/41-inch sheets per hour. Visitors also heard how the Landa S10 complements Edelmann’s offset technology, and how its brand customers now request its new Nanographic Printing capabilities “because of the freedom it offers – to order what they want, when they want it – all with high and consistent print quality,” said the companies.
“In the print and packaging world, everyone is clamoring to know if our Landa S10 is running as expected,” said Oliver Bruns, CEO of Edelmann Group. “We repeatedly get asked if print quality is good and if we’re running seven colours. They also ask if we’re achieving 6,500 B1/41-inch sheets per hour and if we’re able to produce commercial jobs. The simple answer to all of that is, yes of course. The Landa S10 is built to be a full-production machine 24/7. The colours are brilliant and vibrant, intense and lively. I haven’t seen any other technology that comes close. Before installing the Landa S10, we were limited in the solutions we could offer our customers. B1/41-inch digital printing with seven colors and at 6,500 sheets per hour has eliminated these previous constraints. The S10 installation has been a great success, and we now expect to be out of beta testing in a matter of weeks,” Bruns confirmed. “I love the colour from our S10, but crucially, the Landa technology allows us to get a good ROI and that’s just as essential. High speed and great efficiency enable us to earn money with this press.”
Yishai Amir, CEO of Landa Digital Printing, added: “We’re obviously thrilled with the success of the Landa S10 at Edelmann, and we are looking forward to moving them out of beta within weeks. This success echoes our own business progress on all fronts. With a continued ramp-up of production and go-to-market operations, we will have presses installed and printing across three continents by the end of 2019.”
