The variability of ink, and equipment associated with the delivery of ink, can have a significant effect on efficiency in the pressroom. Having an awareness of how to control those variables can result in significant increases in productivity.
Shawn will address proper inspection and quality control when inks reach a printing facility, and what measures are likely in place to control those products.
Additionally, information will be offered regarding on-site handling of inks before and during printing, identifying “areas of interest” where opportunities for improved efficiency may be present.
Greg will provide an overview of the anilox roller and its parts before explaining how and why an anilox works, how to take measurements and how to implement process control into your work environment.
He will also cover calibration, cell condition, anilox care, scope utilization and standard operating procedures.
Cori brings an overview of why plate optimization is critical to having consistent, repeatable color and results on press. She will discuss the tools necessary for plate making optimization.
Between different workflows, round and flat top dots, different screening options and other variables, process control requirements are even more essential to ensure repeatable and consistent results for your customers.
