colordruck Baiersbronn to be beta site using Landa Nanography

Landa names first Nanography customer in Europe

Landa has named colordruck Baiersbronn as its first customer in Europe for the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press

As colordruck Baiersbronn’s keystone digital print platform, the Landa S10 press will be central to the company’s new purpose-built, highly-automated 3,000 square meter digital packaging facility. It will fulfil a variety of customer packaging requirements, from mass customization packaging, individual and small orders, to mock-ups and test market campaigns for the office supply, pharmaceutical, food, confectionery and non-food packaging markets.

“We chose the Landa press because we believe that Landa Nanography will be the future of print and the future growth driver for colordruck Baiersbronn,” says Frank Buesching, managing director. “In the last few years, our average run lengths have decreased substantially. As economic pressures make themselves felt, brands of all sizes are actively looking to reduce costs, and ideally, print only what they need, when they need it. They also want the production flexibility to better react to market trends with packaging that reflects not only planned and seasonal campaigns, but also special messaging or promotions. To meet these requests, we decided to invest in a Landa S10.”

Benny Landa, chairman at Landa says, “We are extremely excited to have colordruck Baiersbronn as our first European installation for the Landa S10 press. Frank and his team are great visionaries in packaging print and converting and have built an impressive facility, employing the industry’s most cutting-edge automation. They have a profound understanding of what it will take to stay competitive—and how to lead in their markets. We look forward to partnering with colordruck Baiersbronn and to being a key part of their new digital journey.”

Engineered for the packaging and converting industries, the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press enables mainstream packaging productivity with plate-free, offset print quality. The Landa S10 press prints up to 13,000 B1 (41 inches) sheets per hour on off-the-shelf cartonboard ranging in thicknesses from 2.4 to 32 mil (60-800 μm). All Landa Nanographic Printing Presses use water-based Landa NanoInk colorants that are engineered to meet a variety of European and other international standards relating to indirect food contact.

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 grown 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.
