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.
