Laser Engraving versus Laser Exposing

State of the art Laser Engraving and Laser Exposing technology

SPGPrints' engraving technology has been the undisputed leader in the textile industry for over 30 years, offering a fast, efficient, high-quality and eco-friendly approach to imaging.

Laser Engraving technology

Over the last 30 years, SPGPrints has developed and delivered over 400 Direct Laser Engraving machines in the global textile printing market.

Direct Laser Engraving is a single step dry process – simply engrave your coated screen with your desired design and print. It eliminates costly consumables like film or ink, and time-consuming processes like exposing and washing.

Laser Exposing technology

Repeatable, consistent quality, reliability and high productivity - these attributes describe the core competencies of SPGPrints’ Laser Exposing technology. 

Laser exposing is the negative imaging of a screen using SPGPrints’ unique direct exposing technology. The entire workflow remains the same as with all other exposing technologies like film or ink-masking. This makes the system especially suitable for customers who already have this wet process but who want to improve their quality or output.
