    What screen you use? AM, FM, mixed, concentric...

    I use traditional AM screen for offset printing.

    But I think that with FM screen the result on gradient is better.

    Any experieces about? Does someone use the ESKO concentric screen? With what result?

    FM raster gives better results on pictures with lots of small details but needs to be really precise calibrated, otherwise it would give "dirty" and "smudged" result.

    Color vs screen results.

    I just got one of those 32" mac monitors and geez! did I miss so many things. was working on a Samsung 24", Dell branded monitor before. Thought I had cleaned up all of my artifacts, until Iopened them up on the 32" Mac monitor. GeeZ! There were so many things I missed. truely amazing!

    Pretty much Trueflow by Scrren in Japan. Rarely Heidelbergs own proprietary stuff. Sometimes Creo. I think thats it. =o)

    I use traditional AM screen for offset printing too.
    I have tried a one time FM,
    better results on pictures with lots of small details but needs to be really precise calibrated
    is true, with the same calibration of traditional AM the pictures was more red

    I hope to make other tests as soon as possible, with more screen

    Just a Warning ahead of time.

    If you are using OSX Leopard up till 10.5.8 just ignore this post. But If you have upgraded to Snow Leopard 10.6 or above and are having problems, It is pretty much the 1.6 Java Engine included with 10.6. The Java with 10.6 has many incompatibility issues with many print servers and there software as well. You can upgrade to Snow Leopard 10.6 but You will NEED TO DOWNGRADE JAVA to 1.42
    Then everything will work perfectly again.. I know Many out there want to go to 10.6+ Because of it's 64 bit memory and system access mode but, yeah it's safe except for JAVA ENGINE. So go ahead and rock and roll! =o)

    FM screening like HDS from Harlequin is very critical to handle. You must have your plate production and printing conditions always under control and as stable as possible.

    Newspaper print
    CtP - ECRM, print - Manugraph CitylineExpress


    In most cases we use traditional AM elliptical screen 1200dpi/105lpi
    Rarely (aproximatly once in month) we use FM to make better low quality imaging

    good luck
