Ryerson student NanoPrint group to present free must-see webinar on Nanography November 26

The NanoPrint group from Ryerson University’s School of Graphic Communications Management (GCM) will present a fascinating and informative webinar on Nanography Tuesday, November 26 at 3:30 pm (EST). The technology is poised to be a game-changer in the printing industry mostly in terms of improved print quality and lower cost-per-sheet. Agreements with several major OEM’s have already been inked, so this webinar could not have come at a better time. Landa Corporation, headed by Canadian-born Benny Landa, has already netted over $1 billion mostly in letters of intent and some in actual cash down payments from major industry players without one single press being delivered.

“We’ll be covering the actual Nanographic process including inking technology, printing capabilities, eco-friendliness, where and when it will come to market and how it differs from other printing processes,” said Ryerson Project Manager Scott Morgan. “Most of all, we’ll be exploring how it will affect the printing industry.”

ryersonnanography-inNanography Printing differs from other technologies primarily because it uses an innovative system and printing process that employs Landa NanoInk, a proprietary water-based ink with nano-pigment particles that measure tens of nanometers in size. Also, while inkjet printing jets transfer the image directly onto the substrate, Nanography first ejects the NanoInk onto a unique, heated, chemically treated blanket – and only then is the ink transferred from the blanket to the substrate in the form of an ultra-thin film.

The process is also innovative in that it utilizes nano-sized pigments to absorb much more light than other pigments, and thus permits images with ultra-sharp dots of extremely high uniformity, high-gloss fidelity and a broad CMYK colour gamut. NanoInk colourants contain ultra-small pigment particles in the tens of nanometers in size. In comparison, good quality offset inks have a particle size of approximately 500 nm.
