A set of Rainbow™ sublimation proof devices are studied on both densitometric and colorimetric points of view. Their performances are compared to two kinds of references: a classical Matchprint™ analog proof system, and a set of quadrichromic inks as they are presented in the ISO 12647-2 standard for offset lithographic processes through main quality criteria (solid optical density and dot gain with respect to five typical papers). The study begins by a presentation of the data content of the ISO standard 12647-2 which will be useful for the experimental investigations.

As a first preliminary work, densitometric measurements are made on a set of typical offset primary inks on two different papers. A second set of experiments leads to the densitometric and colorimetric characterization of the analog and digital proofers. It is recognized that there are no significant deviations among the digital devices. By considering the color gamuts of all the systems in the L*a*b* space, we show that their calibration slightly lower their performances, but the main result is that these performances largely fullfill the requirements of the ISO standard for offset printing.

More about this publication?
  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
