Lüscher Laser Diode Technology
The fibre-coupled laser diodes operates in different wavelenghts and are characterised by an ultra-long service life of +20’000 imaging hours. They are completely maintenance-free, no need for active cooling system.
Fully Automatic Calibration
Prior to every imaging, the system checks the default laser diodes settings relating to the material to be imaged and automatically checks and calibrates the laser diode if necessary. This guarantees consistent quality and eliminates imaging errors.
MultiDX! does not require any consumables such as MH lamps / UV lamps / LED`s or DMD chip. Lüscher maintenance software guides the operator through the simple maintenance tasks and guarantees high reliability. MultiDX! is equiped with a port for Remote Support Service, which can be directly linked to our technical support via internet.
Lowest Energy Consumption
Lüscher`s unique laser diode technology guarantees extremely low power consumption of 0.5 / 0.8 kW and lowest cost of ownershio. This helps the customer to achieve environmental-friendly production.
Unique Hybrid Technology, a Milestone in Imaging Possibilities
In several applications, 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 up to four different laser diodes allowing any printing form to be imaged in one machine. Offset plates, flexo plates, letterpress plates, embossing clichees, flat or rotary screens can be processed.
Custom-built Registering System
The flatbed layout of MultiDX! allows the integration of custom-built registering systems for perfect alignment of the image on the printing form. As a result, the setup time in the printing press is substantially reduced, which leads to significant savings in terms of material and cost.
Using the hybrid technology, MultiDX! can Image any Kind of printing form in one machine: flexo, letterpress and offset plates as well as flat or rotary screens (Gallus, Tecno Screen® by Kocker + Beck or Stork RotaPlate®). The integrated Dual Resolution Optics with 2’540 and 5’080 dpi also covers Full HD Flexo printing.
Embossing with Copper and Magnesium Cliches
Copper or magnesium cliches for embossing in any thickness can be exposed with UV lasers (etch resist) with ultimate precision.
Flat and Rotary Screen Printing
Flat or rotary screens are exposed easily and at the highest precision with UV lasers. Any common steel or Polyester mesh can be processed. And at all times, the machine has enough power capacity to cure thick layers to allow Trouble-free printing.
Printing on Cans, Cups, and Tubes
Various printing forms for almost any printing method using cylindrical shapes can be Images: waterless Offset printing plates, flexo, and letterpress plates well as flat or rotary printing screens.
Steel or polymer cliches for pad printing can be processed by MultiDX! in any thickness. The printing form is either exposed with UV lasers (etch resist) or bolted with infrared lasers (polymer) at the highest precision.
For industrial printing, MultiDX! 320 and 340 can be equipped with optics at a resolution of up to 10’160 dpi, also in dual resolution if requested. Printing screens with lines of up to 20 microns can be produced at ease.
