Benny Landa is about to unveil a revolutionary new printing technology, based on nanotechnology.  According to a report in GlobesLanda Nanographic Printing describes the process as a “game-changing technology for mainstream commercial, packaging and publishing markets.” Benny Landa is the found of digital printing company Indigo, which was sold to HP.

According to the Globes report: At the heart of the Nanographic Printing process is Landa NanoInk. Comprised of pigment particles only tens of nanometres in size (a human hair is about 100,000 nanometres wide), these nano-pigments are extremely powerful absorbers of light and enable unprecedented image qualities.

The company claims that the printing process creates images of remarkable abrasion and scratch resistance and can print on any off-the-shelf substrate, from coated and uncoated paper stocks to recycled carton; from newsprint to plastic packaging films without requiring any kind of pre-treatment or special coating and no post-drying is needed.

Landa is planning to demonstrate its new line of Nanongraphic sheet-fed and web presses at the Drupa Print Media International Fair in Dusseldorf, Germany from May 3-6.
