Landa Corporation, on the eve of unveiling its Nanographic Printing technology at drupa, has announced the establishment of two agreements with manroland and Komori to integrate its printhead technology.
Benny Landa, Landa Founder, Chairman and CEO, says, "We have enjoyed an intimate relationship with Komori, which is our supplier of paper handling platforms for our new Nanographic sheetfed presses. Komori was the first to be exposed to our technology and was the first to share our vision. I am therefore particularly delighted that Komori is the first-to-be-announced global strategic partner with whom we will be sharing this huge market opportunity. With its highly respected position in the printing industry and its broad market access, Komori is well placed to accelerate the worldwide adoption of Landa Nanographic printing."
Announcing the manroland agreement, Landa says: "As the newly restructured manroland sheetfed starts a new chapter, I am enthused that the company will adopt Landa Nanography on which to base its digital printing offerings. Nanography and offset are a perfect fit. In the foreseeable future we will not see a digital printing technology capable of replacing offset for job run lengths of tens or hundreds of thousands. But the market demands ever-shorter run lengths as well as the versatility of digital. That's where Landa Nanographic Printing comes in - at unmatched cost per page."
Landa's highly secretive nanography technology will be shown this week at drupa. The company claims its pigment particles are only tens of nanometers in size and therefore are extremely powerful absorbers of light and enable unprecedented image qualities. Landa Nanographic Printing is characterized by ultra-sharp dots of extremely high uniformity, high gloss fidelity and the broadest CMYK color gamut.
