Title (EN) RELIEF PRINTING PLATE
(FR) PLAQUE D'IMPRESSION EN RELIEF
Abstract:
(EN) An improved relief printing plate and method for producing said plate is disclosed. Substantially all sizes of relief features resolve a fixed pattern which improves print quality. The pattern is applied to image areas in halftone data used to produce an image mask that is subsequently used to convert a plate precursor into a relief plate. The accuracy, ink density and tonal response of printed images corresponding to relief features that include the pattern are comparable or better than relief features produced without the pattern.
(FR) L'invention concerne une plaque d'impression en relief améliorée et un procédé de production de ladite plaque. Sensiblement toutes les tailles d'attributs en relief résolvent un motif fixe qui améliore la qualité d'impression. Le motif est appliqué à des zones d'image en données en demi-teinte utilisées pour produire un masque d'image qui est par la suite utilisé pour convertir un précurseur de plaque en une plaque en relief. La précision, la densité de l'encre et la réponse tonale des images imprimées correspondant aux attributs en relief qui comprennent le motif sont comparables à ou meilleurs que les attributs en relief produits sans le motif.
