Solid area quality is one of the fundamental attributes that contributes to the perception of overall image quality. Area coverage, darkness (such as density, intensity, L*), gloss, and solid area mottle are all aspects of solid area quality that are routinely quantified.

For example, measurement of overall gloss is quite common using commercially available glossmeters. And in recent years, many methods of quantifying solid area mottle have been developed and presented to the industry.

One critical aspect of solid area quality, referred to as gloss mottle, has not been addressed as widely. Gloss mottle is the appearance of variations in the magnitude of gloss across a surface. It can be comprised of both high and low frequency components and is inherently difficult to characterize.

In this paper, a new method for measuring gloss mottle will be proposed. A CCD-camera based system will be described and results will be presented that apply to both solid area gloss mottle and the gloss mottle of coatings that impact the quality of materials such as linerboard.

  • 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.
