Indigo-d Benny Landa has unveiled two new ‘11K Nanographic’ seven-colour B1 digital machines with AI and a top speed of 11,200 sheets per hour to compete with offset printing.

Landa Digital Printing claims the new S11 and S11P machines offer substantial improvements on the S10 and S10P, but they will continue to offer upgrades to the older models – comparing constant improvements to the Landa S10 and S10P technology platforms in the same way that the software in an electric vehicle such as a Tesla can be constantly improved and upgraded.

Also announced was a W11 machine with white ink specifically created for flexible packaging that will be launched at drupa, although an operating machine will not be present at the exhibition.

Landa Digital Printing claims they can currently manufacture 100 machines annually and at this stage have 55 machines installed in North America, Europe and China.

There are currently no other plans to sell machines to other parts of the world this year, including Australia and New Zealand.

New Landa S11P Nanographic Printing Press

Presenting to more than 70 global journalists for the pre-drupa press conference at Messe Düsseldorf, Indigo founder Benny Landa, was celebrated like a rock star with numerous rounds of applause as both a visionary and genius by some members of the press, while others continue to remain sceptical of his ability to create another revolutionary printing technology.

In a statement, Landa Digital Printing said today it was launching “the next generation of its market leading B1 digital print technology, the Landa S11 and S11P Nanographic Printing Presses. The new Landa models offer extreme production versatility while reaching 11,200 SPH print speed. The increased speed drives superior economics for customers looking to increase productivity while reducing job turnaround times,” the statement said.

“We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Landa S11 and S11P,” said Landa Digital Printing CEO, Gil Oron.

“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.

“Commercially available at Drupa 2024 and utilising artificial intelligence technology, the new Landa presses will also offer a new PrintAI module which enhances print quality even further. It ensures a perfect fit for even the most demanding folding cartons and commercial print applications requiring micro text and other brand protection features. PrintAI opens the door to additional profit generating opportunities for many businesses.

“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 per cent of our customers having placed a repeat order for a second or third press. Considered a critical growth engine for folding carton converters, commercial printers, and point of purchase specialists, we’ve entered a new era of print production with Nanography. A time when previous technology limitations have been removed, and print buyers can finally have what they want, when they want it – beautiful print, with unlimited design potential produced economically, at market leading turnaround times, and with the environment always in mind.”

“The new Landa S11 and S11P can be customized 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 SPH and/or the PrintAI module.

“The new Landa modules provide a significant premium to customers,” Oron said.

“While much of the new S11 series is based on the same robust and proven S10 platform, with the additional capabilities launched today, 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 – and take advantage of some of its biggest opportunities.”
