May 9, 2013 – World renowned research and analysis firm, Gartner, Inc., this week named Landa Digital Printing one of five “Cool Vendors in Imaging and Print Services, 2013”. Landa has developed a unique printing process called Nanography™ that will enable digital printing for mainstream applications.
Nanography, also called the Landa Nanographic Printing™ process, bridges the profitability gap where neither offset nor digital technologies enable printers to profitably produce run-lengths of up to 7,000 copies. Nanography is expected to significantly increase printers’ profitability in the $800 billion offset-printed goods market.
The Landa Nanographic Printing process combines the versatility of digital printing with the qualities and speed of offset in a single press. Unlike other digital technologies that require special substrates for printing, Nanography can print on any standard off-the-shelf paper and plastic substrate. In one of its key findings, Gartner reports that “A print technology that is able to print on virtually any paper or film will address key issues facing the digital printing industry.” 
In its first iterations, Landa will deliver two large format B1 sheetfed presses (41 in. / 1050 mm), the Landa S10C Nanographic Printing™ Press for commercial printing and the Landa S10FC Nanographic Printing Press for packaging converters. The S10FC will also have an analog inline coating unit that will support both aqueous and UV coatings. Following the introduction of the large format sheetfed presses, Landa will release the Landa W10 Nanographic Printing Press, a 40.1 in. (1020 mm) webfed press for flexible packaging converters, and the Landa W50 Nanographic Printing Press, a 22 in. (560 mm) double-sided webfed press for publishing printers.
“Gartner analysts have done a superb, in-depth job in comprehensively understanding and conveying the work we’re doing to fulfill a tremendous gap in the marketplace,” says Benny Landa, founder and CEO of Landa Digital Printing. “We are honored and motivated by such distinguished third-party affirmation.”
The “Cool Vendor in Imaging and Print Services, 2013” report also addresses licensing agreements Landa has announced with conventional digital and offset press manufacturers (i.e., Heidelberg, Komori, manroland sheetfed).
