May 29, 2009--Luminit LLC (Torrance, CA), technical innovator in shaping and diffusing light (see "Printing technology enables HOE volume manufacturing"), completed the expansion of its production facilities and the integration of a major new roll-to-roll system for production of its Light Shaping Diffuser product line. The expansion includes a 50% increase in floor space, and a multi-million dollar investment in facilities and equipment.

The new custom designed roll-to-roll system is now fully operational and expands Luminit's production capacity by an order of magnitude. It is enclosed in its own clean room to prevent particulate contamination and can operate at high speeds, imprinting holographically mastered structures on polycarbonate or polyester film at up to 200 feet per minute. In addition to this system, the new facility also enables Luminit to operate its existing production equipment in a cleaner, more productive environment.

Luminit is a privately held, high-technology company specializing in custom and standard holographic diffusers based on multiple technology patents. Luminit's commercial experience covers applications including LED lighting, architectural lighting, biomedical, semiconductor metrology, aerospace, automotive, and display applications. Luminit's Light Shaping Diffusers are available directly or through a network of domestic and international distributors.
