EFI and Landa Corporation have entered into a partnership agreement for the development of a digital front end (DFE) as part of Landa’s end-to-end Nanographic Printing™ solution. Landa’s new DFE will employ high-performance, EFI-developed Fiery® technology. With this technology, the Landa DFE will offer unique, new functionality for sheetfed and webfed Landa Nanographic Printing™ Presses in the commercial, folding carton, point-of-sale, publishing, and flexible packaging markets.
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.
