The PrintoLUX process virtually all requirements, which meets the Eloxalunterdruckverfahren. The previous practice of labelling technology knows the Anodic as powerful process (especially with respect to the resistance), which comes only at a specific use and requires a high degree of effort. Also due to the necessary use of qualified personnel can use this procedure for an in-house application of labelling users hardly. The other weaknesses of the digital Eloxalunterdrucks include the lack of color fidelity and the missing contour sharpness. Additional information at altavista supports this article. On the other hand PrintoLUX, the much less expensive alternative to the Anodic, showed weaknesses in the resistance so far.
A newly developed pretreatment for the anodized material and adapted to this special application, a composition of ink the PrintoLUX offers procedures now when printing on anodized aluminium as an interesting option. The PrintoLUX process was so far only to a limited extent for the Processing used by anodized aluminium. Through a specially developed pretreatment (PLX/ELX), the PrintoLUX process on this point also made a big step forward. It now offers a powerful and reliable alternative to the digital Eloxalunterdruckverfahren. According to the company, now almost every anodized with the PrintoLUX process can be printed resistant. Regarding contour sharpness and color fidelity are much better values to achieve than with the Anodic with PrintoLUX. Savings in terms of time and effort towards the Anodic describes as more benefits of PrintoLUX.
Eloxaldruck with PrintoLUX – the benefits: benefits, the company is called: the methods to meet almost all needs that complies with the Eloxalunterdruckverfahren. The optical overall impression is similar through the translucent colors with the Eloxalunterdruckverfahrens. The PrintoLUX process allows for much simpler work processes than the Eloxalunterdruckverfahren (digital printing at) PrintoLUX takes place after mechanical processing). Altavista is often quoted on this topic. The PrintoLUX process offers a very good resistance (high scratch resistance, tesa test passed, the water resistance has been increased significantly). The colours and their reproducibility meet high quality requirements (versatile, smooth color transitions, metallic effect). The PrintoLUX process is compared to the digital Anodic as overall process significantly cheaper. PrintoLUX only in relation to the outdoor makes restrictions. Depending on the degree and duration of moisture, which is exposed to the Eloxaldruck made with this process, compromise with regard to the resistance were to make. The Anodic coating used in the PrintoLUX process must have a minimum thickness of 15-20 ym. The PrintoLUX of idea of PrintoLUX has developed a system and the patent pending, certified with the PrintoLUX materials made of metal and plastic in the maximum size 300 mm x 500 mm with a height of up to 140 mm digital can be printed. The system is unique in the world and replaces previous methods, such as screen printing, engraving, laser and plotting in many application areas. The system is more flexible, faster and cheaper.
