Rolled Lenticular for Flexographic Printing enters the market
Eastman Chemical Company and custom sheet extruder Pacur have created a new lenticular lens to meet the needs of direct-to-lens flexographic printing. The development of LENSTAR Flexo makes lenticular labels and packaging far more economical than was previously possible. The new material has 150 lenses per inch and is available in rolls to accomodate the needs of flexographic printing.
VLF lens is a large format lenticular sheet specifically designed for direct-to-lens litho offset printing. This new development now makes larger print runs of very large format lenticular images economical. VLF lens was designed as a universal lens for supporting lenticular effects such as 3D flip, motion, and special effects – including the ability to capture multiple seconds of high definition video.
It is compatible with traditional laminated applications of large format lenticular, but the lamination process is cost-prohibitive for large quantity projects. Direct-to-lens printing technology combined with a maximum sheet size of 47.25” x 81” now makes it economical to print hundreds and even thousands of pieces. With a thickness of only .033", the VLF lens can be individually rolled, packaged and drop shipped, an important consideration for delivering lenticular products to the end user.
PACUR Designs a NEW 3D Lenticular Lens
Eastman Chemical Company and custom sheet extruder Pacur have teamed up to produce a new polyester resin developed specifically for the lenticular print market. The lenticular sheet is reverse printed with interlaced images using conventional or UV inks, or can accept various types of laminations.
Using the new polyester resin, the engineering team has developed a new lens specifically for 3D applications. Designed to give optimum depth, this 100 LPI lenticular lens design has a viewing angle of 30° and is .023” thick. Their "universal" 100 LPI lenticular lens has a viewing angle of 42° and is .014” thick, which means it can be used for flip, zoom and morph projects, and 3-D applications where maximum depth is not required.
