THE LUX PROCESS

The LUX Laminator is a simple addition to your existing digital workflow. LUX Membrane 100 or 200 is laminated to the digital plate following laser ablation. This lamination process takes between 4-6 minutes, and works with all plates, including the largest available size, 50 in x 80 in (1,321 mm x 2,032 mm). Following exposure on your existing unit, the Membrane is peeled off and disposed in seconds. The plate can then be processed in your existing equipment.

MEMBRANE

Blotting material is used to wick away the melted, unexposed polymer. The blotter material for the LAVA 5080 is available in rolls up to 54 inches (1,371.6 mm) wide 360 yards (329.18 m) long.

THE LUX PRODUCT PORTFOLIO

MacDermid's LUX technology offers printers the opportunity to print like never before. LUX, an innovative technology 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 process produces a digital plate with a unique, flat-top dot profile from a near 1:1 mask-to-plate plate imaging process. The bump curve associated with digital plates is effectively eliminated, thus expanding the available tonal range.

 

There are two product families within the LUX product portfolio -- LUX Lamination and LUX In-The-Plate (ITP). Both offer the benefits of LUX flat-top dots.
