MacDermid Launches LUX Platemaking Technology
LAS VEGAS, Nev.—On the opening day of the FFTA INFO*FLEX event, MacDermid Printing Solutions (www.macdermid.com) launched a new platemaking technology, known as the LUX Process that the company says will allow printers to take flexo printing to even higher levels of performance.
LUX produces digital plates with an extended print gamut, reduced fluting in corrugated, and overall improved print performance with smoother vignettes, higher contrast, and faster press start up. The simple process works with existing plates from MacDermid, does not require modification to current equipment, and can be used with all flexo lasers. LUX processes a plate with an optimized dot profile.
