Luminer Converting Expands Capabilities, Adds Staff

John LubiscoLAKEWOOD, NJ | Luminer Converting Group, an international pressure-sensitive label converter, reports it has taken advantage of the current down economic market to upturn its capabilities with a combination of staff additions and equipment installations.

The company has made major investments in both of its Northeast production facilities. The Red Lion, PA, facility installed an eight-color, multi-web press, increased personnel and added auxiliary inspection. This has improved its short-run, high quality process labels and added the capability to produce more complex multi-web peel and reseal constructions for both short and long runs.

This has improved print quality and reduced platemaking setup time. In addition, Luminer also improved the quality and efficiency of its proof processes through the use of digital PDFs and color-accurate inkjet hard proofs.
