Nanography™ is the science behind Benny Landa’s revolutionary digital printing technology. Nanographic Printing™ technology combines the performance of offset with the versatility of digital printing and is game-changing for mainstream commercial, packaging and publishing markets. It is expected to ignite a second revolution in print.
Nanographic Printing™ Presses print in up to eight colors, operate at high speeds of up to 13,000 pages per hour for sheetfed and up to 200 meters per hour for web, at 600 dpi or 1200 dpi resolution. Sheet formats span B3, B2 and B1 and web formats range from 560 to 1020 mm.
NanoInk™ colorants are the eco-friendly ’fuel’ of Landa’s innovative
Nanographic Printing™ process.
Nanographic Printing™ ‒ an entirely new category
As the name implies, Nanography™ is based on nanotechnology – the science of ultra-small particles. Particles that are measured in nanometers – billionths of a meter! And, as we have discovered at Landa, nano sized pigments have extraordinary qualities: they become amazingly powerful colorants, enabling an entirely new kind of digital printing.
These nano-pigments impart to Nanography™ its remarkable characteristics:
- Ultra-high speed digital printing
- The industry’s broadest CMYK color gamut
- Ultra sharp dots of extremely high uniformity
- The ability to print on any ordinary untreated paper stock, coated or uncoated.
- The ability to print on practically any plastic packaging film or label stock
- Remarkable abrasion- and scratch-resistant images
- The lowest cost digital printing in the industry
- Low energy consumption and zero emissions
What can Nanography™ do for you?
Allowing an entirely new paradigm for efficient and profitable printing, Nanography allows you to migrate mainstream applications to digital production. For the first time, you do not have to choose between the versatility and short-run economics of digital printing, and the low cost-per-page and high productivity of offset printing. Now you can have both.
Nanography™ creates new business opportunities for providers of any type of printing in the commercial, packaging and publishing markets. It is also set to revolutionize home, office and enterprise printing in the not too distant future.
NanoInk™ ‒ extraordinary qualities
At the heart of Nanography™ are water-based NanoInk™ colorants. These colorants comprise ultra small pigment particles in the 50-70 nanometer range. In comparison, good quality offset inks have a particle size of approximately 500 nanometers. The NanoInk™ pigments are extremely powerful absorbers of light and enable unprecedented image qualities such as colorfulness, edge sharpness, image density and uniformity. The Nanographic Printing™ process is characterized by ultra-sharp dots of extremely high uniformity, high gloss fidelity, and the broadest CMYK color gamut of any commercial printing process.
A short evolution of Nanography™
The worldwide digital explosion
We are surrounded by offset-printed goods that generate over $800 billion in annual revenue. But society is changing at computer speeds. Digital media is rapidly replacing many traditionally-printed products. What does this mean for the future of printing?
When it comes to digital, printing is no exception
Benny Landa’s visionary statement, “Everything that can become digital will become digital. Printing is no exception.”, has proven prophetic. There has been an explosion of digital printing devices of every kind. And digital printing has certainly experienced explosive growth, going from zero when Landa first introduced it in 1993, to a multi-billion dollar industry today.
But can digital printing go mainstream?
For the most part digital printing has only nibbled around the edges of mainstream printing. In order to really become mainstream, digital printing must be competitive with offset in terms of quality, speed and cost ‒ not to mention format size and the ability to print on virtually any kind of ordinary untreated paper.
Nanography™. Digital for mainstream.
Landa has developed a new category of digital printing: Nanography™. It combines quality, speed and cost with formats and paper types. Printers no longer have to choose between the versatility and short-run economics of digital printing and the low cost-per-page and high productivity of offset printing. Now they can have both. Nanography™ offers a winning formula that will transform printing into a digital industry.
The second digital printing revolution is underway!
Nanography™ has already gained wide recognition with industry leaders Komori, manroland sheetfed and Heidelberg on board. The second digital printing revolution has begun.
