LUX® Platemaking Process

Luxlogo_small_2_72dpi.jpgMacDermid's LUX® platemaking process offers printers the opportunity to print like never before. LUX, an innovative process developed exclusively by MacDermid, enables flexo printers to increase print quality, improve print consistency and, at the same time, print more efficiently and reduce waste. The LUX Platemaking Process is made possible by the LUX Laminator and a specialized membrane supplied by MacDermid.

Lux_Laminator-1_72dpi_v2.jpgThe LUX process produces a digital plate with a unique dot profile from a 1:1 mask-to-plate plate imaging process. The bump curve associated with digital plates is effectively eliminated.

This simple process works with existing digital plates from MacDermid, can be used with all flexo lasers, and does not require modification to existing equipment and does not reduce the overall plate throughput. It is backwards compatible, so printers can still produce legacy work via the standard digital platemaking process.
