In the Standard color is created any time. Among the other steps of the marking pressure PrintoLUX recorded significant advantages in terms of time: for the pre-treatment of the material in the process while 0.3 minutes incurred, while screen printing in this trouble, but all following operations see significantly more time for screen printing. The pure pressure time for this sign is in both processes approximately equal (0.5 minutes for screen printing, 0.3 to 0.5 minutes at PrintoLUX ). For hardening and tempering the pressure a time required was measured based on screen printing of 15-30 minutes, at PrintoLUX 7-10 minutes. Get more background information with materials from Jeff Gennette. In screen printing, cleaning of sieves is in addition and claimed another 15 minutes. Direct comparison shows even more: as PrintoLUX saves additional costs finally, one must be in screen printing to the disposal of residual colors and chemicals take care of (hazardous waste), which means not only time, but generates its own cost block and the LCA charged. PrintoLUX is free from these strains. The procedure works with water-based inks and among other things through a high level of environmental performance.
The screen printing material costs remain much higher than the material cost PrintoLUX. Also the working and storage space needed fails process screen printing much more to beech as at PrintoLUX. The special PrintoLUX is not printing, but in the interaction of all components where users of labels using various sign materials, usually have different marking methods are used (often screen printing and engraving). With the use of PrintoLUX you can mark different materials in the same high quality. An evasion accounted for other procedures, the simplification of the process is evident. With thermosetting digital printing of PrintoLUX and the high customer benefit related (high resistance and rendering quality, process simplification) is not Pressure system the ultimate, but the coordinated and optimized in detail interaction between of all components.
So maximum importance to the material used and the inks. PrintoLUX Managing Director Hermann Oberhollenzer: The high resistance and compelling quality of our procedure explained due to the suitability of the material recommended by us. The permanent identifying, testing and selecting this material happens at us with a huge effort, which is justified by the compelling quality of the overall process.” The PrintoLUX of idea of PrintoLUX has developed a process and patented PrintoLUX certified materials made of metal and plastic in industrial resistance currently digital can be printed in the maximum size 420 mm x 600 mm with a height of up to 500 mm. The process is unique in the world and replaces previous methods, such as screen printing, engraving, laser and plotting in many application areas. PrintoLUX is the manufacturing of labels easier, more flexible, faster and more cost effective.
