Route 1 Print is showing its commitment to innovation as it is investing in the UK’s first Landa S10P Nanographic printing press.
The South Yorkshire trade printer began its annual investment in May with two Screen TruePress Jet520HDs and has showed no signs of slowing down, with five further purchases – and now the investment in the Landa S10P.
Unveiled at drupa back in 2012, the Landa S10P makes use of the Nanographic ink process, offering more than the conventional CMYK colours but also being able to print OGB, covering up to 95% of Pantones, eliminating the need for creating spot colours. The B1 double sided digital press is capable of printing up to 6500 sheets an hour and is expected to further bridge the economical gap between digital and litho printing.
‘We were incredibly impressed when we first saw the S10P,’ said Adam Carnell, managing director. ‘The use of Nanographic ink can offer even further sharpness and colour, delivering quality our customers expect.’
He goes on to say, ‘The partnership with Landa seemed natural as we are both looking for creative solutions we can bring to the market. We are all incredibly excited to see how this innovation can improve both efficiency and the service we offer our customers. This is groundbreaking technology and we predict this area of the market is going to explode in the near future. We believe it will enable an accelerated shift from the print to warehouse model to a print on demand practice.’
Yishai Amir, CEO of Landa Digital Printing, added: ‘Adam and his team are building a fantastic business with which we are honoured to be partnering. The Landa S10P and Route 1 Print are a perfect match, with a shared passion for innovation. I look forward to a long and successful relationship.’
Currently Route 1 Print is working closely with Landa to integrate its MIS with the press. The printers aim to create a bespoke solution that will allow a full web to print system.
The press is expected to arrive at the South Yorkshire facility at the beginning of 2019 and to be within the factory workflow in the following weeks. Following its arrival, Route 1 Print will be inviting people to see the press in action and inspect its print quality for themselves.
