AM screening
For flexo and letterpress printing
AM screening, which is the form of screening used most
commonly in the printing industry today, involves creating
halftone dots separated by a fixed distance and arranged in a
regular pattern. Varying the size of the halftone dots used creates
areas of higher and lower color density. AM screening results in a
highly consistent color appearance, and is easy to print.
Flexo Dot
Flexo printing
Flexo Dot, which is designed for flexo printing, increases
the minimum dot size and applies a reinforcing pattern to the
base halftone dot shape. This results in the creation of more
consistent relief patterns in the highlight areas. The minimum
halftone dot shape can be selected from a lineup of shapes
for each screen ruling, depending on the plate thickness,
platemaking and printing environments, to ensure optimal
highlight printing.
Letterpress printing
With traditional AM halftone dots, the reproduction of
extreme highlights is inconsistent. In traditional halftone dots,
the minimum halftone dot size is one dot, but with Flexo Dot,
highlight areas feature a somewhat larger minimum halftone dot
size consisting of several dots, which makes it possible to create
consistent dots in the extreme highlight areas. The minimum
halftone dot shape can be selected from a lineup of shapes for
each screen ruling, depending on the platemaking and printing
environments, to ensure optimal highlight printing.
Spekta 2
Offset and letterpress printing
Spekta 2 is a next-generation form of hybrid AM/FM
screening that is designed to make printing easier. Not only does
it solve the problems of moiré and broken lines that sometimes
occur when AM screening is used, it also increases the vibrancy
of the colors being printed. Spekta 2 makes added-value label
printing a reality.
Multi-screening (option)
Multi-screening makes it possible to use the optimal
type of screening for each object being printed, even if that
means mixing different types of screening on a single page.
This is particularly useful when printing pages that contain
such disparate elements as images, text, keylines, patterned
backgrounds, tints, decorative lines, outlined text, and gradations.
Multi-screening prevents moiré and broken lines, and contributes
to a significant increase in finished quality.
