The Landa DFE will stream jobs at full printing speed for 4-8 color printing with Landa Nanographic Printing Presses and will enable press operators to perform last-minute job changes on the press, to proof jobs and to print rush jobs on-the-fly. In addition, it will collect production feedback from the presses and support closed-loop color control and inspection. The Landa DFE will support all job dynamics including static, VDP (Variable Data Printing) and EPID (Every Page Is Different) printing.
The agreement brings together two pioneering businesses in the digital printing industry with the vision to fundamentally change how mainstream applications are produced. Offering a breakthrough for cost-effectively printing short-to-medium job lengths up to five times faster than existing digital printing presses, Landa's revolutionary presses create demanding technical challenges for processing job data. EFI, as the worldwide leader in color DFE and digital print workflow technology, is uniquely positioned to deliver such cutting edge technology to meet Landa's stringent color management, job workflow and integrated MIS demands.
"Our unique Nanographic Printing™ process enables us to offer offset-quality digital printing and a combination of format size and throughput speeds unprecedented in the graphic arts industry," said
End-to-end digital printing solution for mainstream applications
Landa selected EFI because of its technology leadership and expertise in high-speed digital systems and color and print management. Landa customers can use the new DFE to create an end-to-end solution that naturally fits into their printing operation, whether full offset, all-digital or hybrid offset/digital.
Landa Nanographic Printing Presses will be installed next to offset presses and use the same substrates. With the new DFE, Landa Nanographic Printing Presses will integrate into a printer's existing prepress, production, and business management workflow and finishing equipment. The Landa DFE will also ensure consistency, accuracy and compliance to leading color standards. It will enable high-speed, variable-data printing on any off-the-shelf B1 format (41 in. / 1,050 mm) substrate.
High-end processing with integrated workflow capabilities
As with current EFI Fiery platforms, the new DFE will integrate with EFI's industry-leading MIS/ERP systems, as well as with leading third-party prepress and workflow platforms, for streamlined job management and processing.
Fiery is the first and only DFE platform that carries a 100% perfect pass rating from industry organization VIGC's PDF RIP Audit. The Fiery DFE technology EFI is developing for Landa will use scalable, robust systems offering the processing power needed to drive large volumes of offset-quality digital images, including personalized/variable-data content.
The new Landa DFE will enter beta testing as part of the beta installations of the B1 (41 in. / 1,050 mm) format Landa S10 Nanographic Printing™ Press slated for Q4 of this year.
