LUXTM Platemaking Process Take the Next Step in Flexo Printing with the LUX Platemaking Process MacDermid’s LUX platemaking process offers printers the opportunity to print like never before. LUX, an innovative process developed by MacDermid, enables flexo printers to increase print quality, improve print consistency and, at the same time, reduce operating costs and waste. The 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. It is backwards compatible, so you can still produce the legacy work via the standard digital platemaking process. To learn more about how the LUX process can transform your digital print jobs, contact your MacDermid representative. When you want to take your flexo print to the next level, count on the company that says, “Yes We Can”, MacDermid. • Smaller printed dot • Reduced sensitivity to wear and impression • Faster press startup • Reduced fluting in corrugated applications • Easy to integrate process into existing platemaking Segments Flexible Packaging Tags and Labels Folding Carton Sacks, Paper, Multiwall Corrugated Key Features 2nd Annual plate/platemaking guide
