Landa has announced its final 2017 beta customer line-up. The first shipment of the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press will take place in July 2017 to Graphica Bezalel, the award-winning Israel-based folding carton, packaging and label converter. In November 2017, Landa will ship North America’s first Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press to Imagine!, a US-based leader of pointof-purchase solutions. In December 2017, Edelmann, the German-headquartered world leader of high-quality and innovative board and paper packaging solutions, will become the first European beta customer for the Landa S10 Nanographic
Printing Press.

Graphica Bezalel

As a traditional offset print house, Graphica Bezalel has selected the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press as its first digital solution, affording it the unique competitive advantage of high-speed, high-quality digitally printed folding carton production.

Eyal Harpak, director of Graphica Bezalel says, “Nanography is the first technology to tempt us into the world of digital print. Until we saw what the Landa S10 could produce, we couldn’t believe that any digital press could match offset print quality at the high speeds required to open up the medium-run folding carton market.” Landa and Graphica Bezalel will hold a worldwide customer event on 12 September 2017, to demonstrate the Landa S10 in a customer production environment.

Imagine!

As announced at drupa 2016, the leading provider of large-scale point-of-sale displays and in-store signage, Imagine! remains on track to become the first beta site for the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press in North America.

Says Bob Lothenbach, founder at Imagine!, “We don’t usually chase technology trends. However, we believe in nanography and want to be instrumental in the digital-for-mainstream revolution. Nanography is the first digital printing solution with the format sizes and speeds that will let us migrate our applications away from offset. The reduced setup costs and improved turnaround times will bring substantial growth to our business.”

Edelmann

Specializing in packaging solutions for health care, beauty care and consumer brands, Edelmann has production plants in nine countries with sales exceeding 300 million euros. Producing 5.5 billion packages and leaflets per year, it is one of the world’s leading packaging manufacturers and system suppliers.

Dierk Schröder, chairman, Edelmann says, “Our business is all about customer service. Staying in tune with the market and delivering what it needs, but also anticipating, innovating and then proactively offering what it didn’t know it needed. What’s more, nanography is breakthrough technology with the potential to transform the print, packaging and communication markets.”

Landa chairman, Benny Landa said, “We are now reaching the milestone of delivering our first Landa Nanographic printing presses to customers. We are very proud that these industry leaders, and others who share their vision, have chosen to become our beta partners in this program.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
