CSW becomes LUX-certified

May 8, 2012

The company is the first US trade shop to be certified by MacDermid as a LUX platemaking technology provider.

CSW, Inc., a provider of integrated packaging products, is the first US trade shop to be certified by MacDermid as a LUX platemaking technology provider. CSW has production facilities in Massachusetts, New York and Ohio.

During alpha and beta testing stages of this product, MacDermid says it looked upon CSW as a valued partner. CSW has been using LUX since 2009, and has made it an integral part of its Gen2 and HD-Gen2 Digital Plate Systems. According to the company, CSW’s Gen2 digital plates incorporate world-class color management, meticulous file separation, and LUX platemaking technology to provide corrugated converters with the following benefits:

• Increased image resolution and finer detail
• Crisper reverses and more open mid-tones & shadows
• Smoother gradations – down to almost 0%
• Maximized press speeds and plate longevity
• Reduced fluting

Narrow and wide-web flexo printers enjoy similar benefits with CSW’s HD-Gen2 plates, but can also take advantage of improved ink transfers and solid ink densities, with reduced pinholing. According to Vic Corenflos, printing manager at Bemis, “We knew that CSW would do their best to image engineer this job, but the results have surpassed our expectations. This is one of the best flexo pieces we have seen yet on our shrinkable film.”
