Tone Curve Compensation of Multiple Color Halftoning Screen Printing for Heterogeneous Fabrics
For mass production, multiple color halftoning screen printing (MCHSP) can be considered as the alternative textile printing technology when vivid color gradation is needed and the cost of digital printing is a concern. Essentially, MCHSP utilizes the same equipment as traditional screen printing to print overlapping multiple color gradation under halftoning patterns by applying dedicated treatments on color separation and calibration. To ensure color quality, equipment calibration and tone curve compensation are required to compensate for the variables arising from equipment setup and heterogeneous fabrics. In this research, the authors present a procedure of tone curve compensation to eliminate the discrepancy from heterogeneous fabrics. The experimental results based on 55 samples of 44 different fabrics show the effectiveness of compensation and reveal the distribution of average compensation percentage across fabrics.

The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.
IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.
