A Landa S10P Nanographic Printing Press has been installed by German printer BluePrint to allow it to address customer demand for large-format commercial jobs with higher levels of customisation, but at short-medium run lengths.
The B1, double-sided Landa machine is expected to enable BluePrint to target new business growth of up to 30%. Furthermore, by moving work to the Landa S10P, BluePrint expects to reduce its carbon emissions by up to 35%.
The new Landa S10P is located at BluePrint’s expanded facilities in Munich, serving European customers across the German speaking countries. According to business owner, Gerhard Meier, the technology will allow the company to increase productivity and reduce time to market.
With a portfolio mix of traditional offset presses and smaller format digital capabilities, BluePrint plans to transition existing medium-run jobs onto its new Landa S10P. Typical applications include displays and posters.
“In terms of its B1 format (1050mm x 750mm) and ability to print on a wide range of substrates, the versatility of the Landa S10P allows us to use it across almost all of our business. This enables us to improve productivity by moving work from our offset and digital presses that are a better fit for Nanography, especially for short-medium run length work,” said Meier. “For many of our pharmaceutical clients, jobs are also required in multi-language versions - needing a level of personalisation that’s difficult to produce cost efficiently for short-medium runs on other technology. In addition, the Landa S10P’s seven colours and ultra-wide colour gamut provides unparalleled results in terms of colour definition and print quality.”
