Landa Digital Printing has launched the next generation of its B1 digital print technology, the Landa S11 and S11P nanographic printing presses, which are set to become commercially available at drupa 2024.

The new Landa models are explained to offer production versatility while reaching speeds that produce up to 11,200 sheets per hour.

Utilising artificial intelligence technology, the new Landa presses will also offer a new PrintAI module which has been stated to enhance print quality further. The new module is perceived as a ‘perfect fit’ for even the most demanding folding cartons and commercial print applications requiring micro text and other brand protection features.

Gil Oron, CEO of Landa Digital Printing commented, ‘Following the success of our customers with current Landa S10 and S10P models and based on deep understanding of the industry’s future needs, we are taking Nanography to its next level. The new Landa models enable printers and packaging converters to not only increase print quality, but also elevate productivity and profitability while further reducing job turnaround times.’

The new Landa S11 and S11P models include a new ink drying system that enables transfer of dry ink from the blanket to the media, at the higher speed of 11,200 sheets per hour. Unlocking additional productivity and improving economic benefits, the new high-speed capability is considered key for printers and converters looking to produce more jobs, with shorter deadlines.

The new Landa S11 and S11P can be customised to the exact requirements of every customer. This means that each new press comes with a choice of four or seven colours, a continuous printing capability, an optional in-line coating unit, and the opportunity to purchase the 11K Module elevating productivity to 11,200 sheets per hour and/or the PrintAI module.

Mr Oron concluded, ‘As a mature and proven technology platform, we’re proud that over 50 Landa presses are now at the heart of many businesses in 14 countries around the world, with more than 20% of our customers having placed a repeat order for a second or third press.

‘While much of the new S11 series is based on the same robust and proven S10 platform, customers can expand their service offering or break into profitable new markets. More widely, there’s no question that the B1 digital print revolution is underway, with Landa presses helping many print houses and converters to meet some of the industry’s biggest challenges.’

The W11 for flexible packaging has also been confirmed, with the digital flexible packaging press to be part of the company’s drupa 2024 presence through a technology showcase and proof-of-product samples.
