Precision Rosette Hybrid Screens is a part of SoftRIP SP from Wasatch Computer Technology (www.wasatch.com). Wasatch says the new screens provide users with state-of-the-art halftoning and screen printing and other processes that call for film with high line counts. The Precision Rosette Hybrid Screens are designed to facilitate the transition from AM to FM at a minimum dot size. According to Wasatch density is reproduced by removing dots in an FM or stochastic pattern. Wasatch reports that this technique can be used to eliminate the highlight break that occurs in screen and flexo printing due to physical issues with small dots and can also be used to eliminate plugged holes in the shadow areas of inkjet-printed separations.
