In 1976, Luminite became the first manufacturer of laser engraved flexographic image carriers in North America. For the 40+ years since, we have continued to deliver seamless / continuous, laser engraved image carriers that yield superior quality products.

The Direct Laser Engraving Difference:

For applications that require increased durability, tighter registration, and higher ink densities — DLE ablated image carriers are the right choice.

Compared to other methods of imaging, DLE offers:

  • Flat top dots
  • Increased control of dot shape and dot profile
  • Greater depth / relief options
  • Distortion free, in-the-round, seamless / continuous printing

DLE is especially relevant for the following industries:

  • Flexible packaging
  • Label printing
  • Tissue / nonwoven printing
  • Corrugated packaging
  • Security printing

Engraving Technology:

Luminite has 3 state of the art lasers in-house that enable us to produce multiple image carriers simultaneously. This allows us to easily keep up with demand and provide quicker lead times to our customers.
