MacDermid to Showcase New Innovations at LabelExpo

Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Atlanta, Georgia, USA – MacDermid Printing Solutions announced today that it will feature the only commercially available in-the-plate solution, LUX ITP, as well as its LAVA thermal plate processing system at LabelExpo in Brussels, Belgium from September 29 through October 2.  

"Because we are constantly innovating, we are looking forward to exhibiting the latest technology solutions from MacDermid at this important show for such an innovative market segment," said Heather Barrett, Director of Marketing at MacDermid.

With that in mind, MacDermid's LAVA platemaking equipment is specifically suited for the tag and label industry. This type of thermal processing is an ideal solution for the narrow web market because the footprint for the equipment is much smaller and faster. MacDermid's LAVA platemaking equipment is available in small, mid, and large format sizes.

MacDermid provides multiple photopolymer plates suited for the tag and label industry. LUX ITP is MacDermid's newest plate that can be used along with LAVA platemaking equipment. It is the only commercially available in-the-plate flat-top dot solution.

Additionally, MacDermid will be featuring a plate that has been specifically designed for use with UV inks. MacDermid's UVR photopolymer plate was designed to swell less than other flexographic plates in aggressive UV inks. UVR also offers excellent print resolution and low dot gain.

"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," said Alain Claveloux, Business Director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa at MacDermid Printing Solutions.
