About this event

Optimizing Flexographic Print Quality Through Prepress Technology

As flexographic print quality continues to improve, the impact of prepress technology on print quality becomes increasingly obvious. This presentation will describe Esko’s latest screening technologies in detail and focus on how to optimize these technologies under your production conditions.

We’ll first review Crystal Screening and the Print Control Wizard in detail, then take a look at the future developments and their impact on print quality.

Key Take-Aways

  • Crystal Screening uses cell patterns in solids and halftone dots to improve flexographic print quality.
  • Crystal screens now have even more parameters – including cell pattern parameters, highlight dot size, and highlight dot frequency.
  • While optimizing all parameters can be difficult for a human, it’s easy for Print Control Wizard.
  • The Print Control Wizard optimization technology developed for single color optimization is now being applied to 4c and beyond.
