MacDermid debuts latest plate processing system


MacDermid’s LAVA NW platemaking equipment is specifically suited for the tag and label industry.

MacDermid Graphics Solutions is featuring the latest product from the LUX Technology Platform – LUX ITP M – and its LAVA NW thermal plate processing system at Labelexpo (Booth #937 and # 1217). 

“Because we are constantly innovating, we are exhibiting the latest technology solutions from MacDermid,” says Ryan Vest, global director of innovation at MacDermid.

MacDermid’s LAVA NW platemaking equipment is specifically suited for the tag and label industry. This type of thermal processing is designed for the narrow web market because the footprint for the equipment is much smaller and faster compared to solvent processing. The LAVA NW represents the latest thermal technology available and MacDermid’s continued commitment to continuous innovation with its thermal program.

MacDermid provides multiple photopolymer plates suited for the tag and label industry. LUX In-The-Plate M is the latest product with LUX flat-top dots directly in-the-plate. It is the newest product available from the award winning LUX technology platform. LUX ITP M is a medium durometer plate specifically designed for paper stocks, preprinted liner board and other applications where a combination of high durability and excellent ink laydown is required. This plate features the company's latest clean print technology and can be used along with LAVA NW platemaking equipment to fully optimize a workflow.

“The tag and label market is an integral and essential part of MacDermid’s growth strategy, and we will be investing heavily into furthering our presence with technology and resources,” explains Patrick Mullaney, business director for North America at MacDermid Graphics Solutions.

MacDermid's distributor’s booths can be found at All Printing Resources – booth #927 and JV Imaging Solutions – booth #1217.
