Image offset lithography plates coated with photosensitive emulsions directly with laser systems

About Lithography

Lithography is a method of printing that uses flat plates rather than etched or carved plates or die sets. Traditionally this has been performed using hydrophobic and hydrophilic substrates to attract and repel inks, however modern methods – offset lithography – uses flat flexible plates coated with photosensitive emulsions and are driven by laser systems. Lasers can be used to directly create the image in a number of different ways and it is important that the power output from the laser is stable to avoid differences in image intensity. Additionally, high pointing stability will ensure the created image is sharp.


The Novanta products are ideal as they ensure:


  • Excellent stability ensuring consistent printing results of equal intensities.
  • Small footprint, enabling them to be easily integrated into the instrument.
