What Is Nanography®? 3 Things to Know About Landa’s Patented Digital Printing Technology
Meet Nanography®, the latest in printing technology from Landa. With the installation of the new 7 color Landa S10 Nanographic Printing® Press at Duggal’s New York production facilities, we are seeing Landa’s innovation in action and using its Nanographic Printing® to deliver on high-octane projects with high-powered brands. So, what is Nanography®?
Next-Gen Digital Printing
Nanography® unlocks a world of commercial and packaging applications by combining the robustness of offset printing with the capabilities of digital printing. Using Nanography®, the Landa S10 can deliver 2,400 DPI resolution with unparalleled sharpness and color. The press is far superior to lithographic quality printing, bringing “a winning formula that is poised to transform digital printing into a mainstream technology,” Landa says.
Nod to Nanotechnology
Nanography® is based on nanotechnology, or the science of ultra-small particles measured in nanometers. As Landa has discovered, nano sized pigments have extraordinary qualities as colorants that provide sharpness and uniformity in printing. Techopedia explains, “In nanography, microscopic droplets called nanoink are spread, sprayed or dropped onto an ‘image conveyer blanket’ that is heated. The droplets essentially melt, dispersing liquid and bonding to the page. This provides a very high quality print result.”
Quality Meets Efficiency
Landa’s Nanography® process notches breakthrough speed for digital printing at 6,500 sheets per hour—five times the typical printing speed. All the while, a 3-picoliter drop size provides stunning detail, even at high volume. Nanography® is the life force behind the Landa S10’s benefits, including:
Ultra-high speed digital printing
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
