Global Graphics Software Launches Screening Engine

WALTHAM, MA | Global Graphics Software will introduce the Harlequin Multi-Level Digital Screening Engine at the upcoming drupa 2016, May 31–June 10, in Düsseldorf, Germany. Company says this technology allows single-pass inkjet presses to achieve significantly better print quality.

Martin Bailey, chief technology officer at Global Graphics Software, says, "These advances in quality follow our extensive research with inkjet press manufacturers. Our new Harlequin Multi-Level Digital Screening Engine compensates for the quality problems currently faced by inkjet press manufacturers and helps them to achieve their goals of high quality and high speed. This new engine can be integrated into Digital Front Ends based on Harlequin RIPs but will also work with third-party DFEs by the addition of a standalone version to replace the native screening."

The engine is part of a new service company will introduce to inkjet developers at drupa that sees technicians measure test prints from single-pass greyscale presses and process the results through company’s new Digital Print Quality Optimizer tool. This calculates optimized patterning and overlaps for the various ink drop sizes available to overcome common high speed inkjet press problems such as streaking and mottling.

Company has published a White Paper that addresses the quality challenges associated with high-speed greyscale presses and explains how the new Harlequin Multi-Level Digital Screening works to mitigate the quality variables. The paper can be downloaded at this link.
