It’s Time to Change the Way You Measure Dot Percentage

Measurement is the basis of process control. The measurement of dot area coverage or dot percentage is fundamental to define the characteristics of our printing system, to calculate compensations of tonal values for plate making and, finally, to control the production.

In 2017, a new method for the calculation of dot area percentage was introduced. ISO 20654: 2017 – Graphic Technology – Measurement and Calculation of Spot Colour Tone Value has come to simplify your measurements.

Join Stefano d’Andrea as he demonstrates how to implement this new method and experience its benefits.
