At the pre-drupa press meet held in Dusseldorf from 25-27 March, Landa Digital Printing announced that it would launch the next generation of its B1 digital print technology, the Landa S11 and S11P nanographic printing presses. The new Landa models offer a print speed of 11,200 sheets per hour (SPH). 

“We’re delighted to announce the launch of the Landa S11 and S11P. Following the success of our customers with the current Landa S10 and S10P models and based on a deep understanding of the industry’s future needs, we are taking Nanography to its next level,” Gil Oron, CEO, Landa Digital Printing said. 

Oron said that Landa Digital Printing has managed over 55 installations already with a large number of these customers having placed repeat orders. Half of these installations happened in the past year.  

“After decades of innovation, patents, and investments of over one billion Euros, we are now experiencing rapid growth with a very, very strong ramp-up. And actually, we are doubling our business year after year. So, the need for a digital printing solution is clear to all. It’s increasing quite rapidly due to the recent trends in the market, especially with this eCommerce network,” Oron said. 

Details of the new models

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 SPH.

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 colors, 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. 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,” Oron said. 

Commercially available at drupa 2024 and utilizing artificial intelligence technology, the new Landa presses will also offer a new PrintAI module. 

Plans for a flexible packaging press

Additionally, Landa Digital Printing announced its intention to venture into the realm of flexible packaging with the W11 flexible packaging press, further expanding its portfolio of innovative printing solutions.

“We are really excited about this,” Oron concluded.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground.
