Lüscher JetScreenLT! & MultiDX! Exclusive Distribution
For more than 70 years, Lüscher has been designing and manufacturing machinery for the graphic arts industry. As early as 1992, Lüscher introduced JetScreen to the world market: a computer to screen (CTS) system using both inkjet and hotmelt technology – commonly used in the 90’s. It was the first of its kind and having notched up more than 700 installations, JetScreen was the most successful CTS system of its time.
JetScreenLT! stands for an entirely new generation of CTS system using the same Swiss precision engineering and CTS know-how, but supplemented by state-of-the-art laser technology developed by Lüscher Technologies AG. This equipment sets new standards in digital imaging of printing screens and is available in various formats up to 5500 x 3200 mm.
The laser configuration of JetScreenLT! can be optimally adapted to match customer requirements. Equipped with a maximum of 128 laser diodes in the UV range of 405 nm, the system is able to reach an exposure speed of up to 45 m2 per hour at a resolution of 635 dpi. The desired quality and speed ratio can be optimized by means of a new Trioptic! system – allowing a choice of three resolutions: 635, 1270 and 2540 dpi.
In a number of fields, such as the label printing industry, a combination of different printing methods using various printing forms is being applied. Traditionally, at least two different CTP systems would be necessary to meet this requirement. MultiDX! with its hybrid Technology combines two laser Technologies with variable wavelengths (e.g. 405 nm UV and 940 nm IR) allowing any printing form to be exposed in one machine. Offset plates, flexo and letterpress plates and printing screens can now be processed in the same printing press (Gallus, Mark Any, Nilpeter and others). Switching between the wavelengths is made by a simple click of a button and the integrated Dual Resolution Optics with 2540 and 5080 dpi also covers Full HD Flexo printing.
