LumeJet – Inkless Ultra High Quality Photobook Production
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4672.2015.6.1.art00009  Published OnlineJanuary 2015

The result of 10 years research, LumeJet is commercializing a new photonic 'inkless' printer, the S200, for ultra high quality photobook production. Similar to Ink Jet – but without the inks – LumeJet comprises custom designed print heads (moving or static) with multi-LED arrays and special fiber taper optics. Using light, rather than ink, increases throughput and image quality, whilst reducing media costs for image intensive documents. LumeJet is a continuous tone process that can resolve down to 2pt colored text and graphics, which would require at least 10-colours and over 4000dpi with inkjet and toner systems. Applications for LumeJet technology have also been identified in label and package printing and printed electronics.
