Products or Machinery

LPKF NovaPrint combines the accuracy and flexibility of a laser-based digital printing process with the option of printing certified RAL colors that have been tried and tested in the architectural and automotive sectors. A laser pulse transfers the finest color particles to the flat glass to be printed.

This allows the digital printing of large-area designs, but also of logos, data matrix and QR codes with high opacity and performance.

Thanks to digital print control and field-tested glass handling, laser transfer printing (LTP) is suitable for large series, but also for small batches and individualized prints without screens in production.
