LAVA Plate Processing System Platemaking Equipment The Right Choice for Quick and Easy Thermal Plate Processing The MacDermid LAVA Plate Processing System represents the latest advancement in thermal platemaking technology from MacDermid. Thermal platemaking improves productivity and workflow, generating press-ready plates in less than an hour. Additionally, LAVA Thermal Plate Processing eliminates solvents and VOCs from the platemaking process, resulting in a more environmentally friendly process. Available in three format sizes, the LAVA Plate Processing System is ideal for narrow web, mid-web, and now, even wide- web applications. The advanced design of the LAVA system incorporates an internal filter system for reduced footprint, an automated lift lid, and LED illumination. For quick and easy thermal plate processing, count on the company that innovates with you in mind - MacDermid. • Improved productivity and workflow; press-ready plates in less than an hour • Elimination of solvents (VOCs) from the platemaking process • Smaller equipment footprint than solvent systems • Updated design for reduced footprint and improved ergonomics • Available in three format sizes: 25 x 30, 42 x 60 & 50 x 80 Key Features LUX® 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 innovates with you in mind, 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 Key Features Segments Flexible Packaging Tags and Labels Folding Carton Sacks, Paper, Multiwall Corrugated
