As many as 60 leading converters and printers attended an open house organized by Edelmann group and Landa Digital Printing at Edelmann’s Heidenheim facility in order to see Europe’s first Landa S10 Nanographic printing press. The press can produce commercial jobs at 6,500 B1/41 in. sheets per hour. Visitors saw how Landa S10 compliments Edelmann’s offset technology and the freedom that Nanographic printing offers in terms of high and consistent quality.

Oliver Bruns, chief executive officer, Edelmann group said , “In the print and packaging world, everyone is clamoring to know if our Landa S10 is running as expected. We repeatedly get asked if the print quality is good and if we’re running seven colors. They also ask if we’re achieving 6,500 B1/41 in. sheets per hour and if we’re able to produce commercial jobs. The simple answer to all of that is, yes of course. The Landa S10 is built to be a full production machine, 24/7. The colors are brilliant and vibrant – so intense and lively. I haven’t seen any other technology that comes close.”

Bruns further added, “Before installing the Landa S10, we were limited in the solutions we could offer our customers. B1/41 in. digital printing with seven colors and at 6,500 sheets per hour has eliminated these previous constraints. The S10 installation has been a great success, and we now expect to be out of beta in a matter of weeks.”

Specializing in packaging solutions for health care, beauty care and consumer brands, the Edelmann Group has operations in nine countries, spanning Europe, Asia, North and South America. Employing more than 3,000 people with sales of over EUR 300 million, Edelmann produces over 5.6 billion packages and leaflets per year. In meeting the environmental demands of some of the world’s most exacting blue-chip brands, sustainability initiatives are also top priority for the company. Speaking at the open house, Bruns also confirmed that partnering with Landa was the best decision for their business. He said, “This is not just a supplier-customer relationship, it’s far more. I love the color from our S10, but crucially, the Landa technology allows us to get a good ROI and that’s just as essential. High speed and great efficiency enable us to earn money with the press.”

Yishai Amir, chief executive officer, Landa Digital printing said, “We are obviously thrilled with the success of the Landa S10 at Edelmann, and we are looking forward to moving them out of beta within weeks. This success echoes our own business progress, on all fronts. With a continued ramp-up of production and go-to-market operations, we will have presses installed and printing across three continents by the end of 2019.”

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.
