The stochastic screen has traditionally been used to preserve images with fine features as well as to reduce printing Moiré of images that contain input periodic structures. However, the stochastic screen also has experienced more difficulty in maintaining color stability in long press runs. Kodak, using its multilevel printing architecture, has created a new stochastic screening technology, with long-run color stability comparable to that of traditional screens. The new screening process has a unique AM and FM structure consisting of variable dot size, dot shape, dot density, and dot positions. The structure simulates the receptive field structure of the human retina to achieve the desired image smoothness. Kodak's high information capacity, multilevel printing technology in conjunction with nonlinear LED exposure, can further be expanded to production printing with even finer contone-screen printing. This paper will discuss the advances of these technologies.

  • 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.
