MacDermid Graphics Solutions recently showcased the new Lava NW-M Plate Processing System and the latest Lux In-The-Plate (ITP) product additions at Labelexpo Americas 2018.

The product launch is MacDermid’s newest addition to its thermal platemaking technology. According to the company, the Lava NW-M is specifically designed for narrow web to mid web applications to improve productivity and workflow. The thermal processing system has a smaller footprint and the ability to output press-ready plates in less than an hour, it says.

MacDermid also presented the Lux ITP 60 at Labelexpo. The Lux ITP 60 was recognized by the FTA in 2016 with the Technical Innovation Award for its low dot gain, low tack plate suited for long and clean run print jobs. The Lux ITP technology is offered in Lux ITP 60, Lux ITP M and Lux ITP Epic, the latest addition to the product line.

Lux ITP M is a medium durometer plate that provides all the benefits of Lux ITP 60, but in a lower durometer, MacDermid explains. Lux ITP M is suitable for paper stock, preprinted liner board and other applications where a combination of high durability and excellent ink laydown is required. Meanwhile, Lux ITP Epic offers a micro-rough surface for “excellent” ink transfer for challenging flexographic printing applications or unique ink requirements.
