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.

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.”

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.”
