MacDermid Graphics Solutions has launched LUX ITP Edge, an in-the-plate flat-top dot solution for post-print corrugated. Boasting an optimized dot structure, LUX ITP Edge is designed to reduce fluting without the use of additional platemaking techniques or exposure systems.

LUX ITP Edge, the latest addition to MacDermid’s LUX ITP product portfolio, is described as printing high-quality images on post-print corrugated with near 1:1 reproduction up to 120 lpi and proven results with minimal bump requirements up to 150 lpi. LUX ITP Edge can print retail-ready packaging featuring high-end graphics with fine highlight dots on corrugated surfaces.

“LUX ITP Edge is a culmination of multiple innovations from MacDermid with LUX ITP flat-top dots, anti-fluting technology, and our patented clean plate technology. This new plate meets a need of today’s market to produce high-quality graphics for retail-ready packaging,” says Dan Fry, Corrugated Portfolio Manager at MacDermid.

LUX ITP Edge is formulated with MacDermid’s clean plate technology, which is designed to reduce the number of press stops and ensures a cleaner print with better ink laydown.
