Analysis on Variation of Dot Size Printed by Offset Flexography and Electrophotography
Abstract:In printing, the reproducibility of printed dot size is important. The reproducibility of dot printed by electrophotography printing, offset printing, and flexography is investigated. It is found that the variation of dot by flexography is 0.046 in the mid range density level, on the other hand the variation of offset printing is 0.023. The variation of dot by electrophotography printing is 0.043. The relation between the variation of the dot size and quality of uniform density shows that human can detect the quality of uniform density on produced by flexography and electrophotography easier than offset printing.

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.
