Improving quality consistency and productivity of color separators utilizing the Dupont image manager by Enrique A Arce B.( )

1 edition published in 1990 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The magic key in any commercial transaction is to satisfy the customer's requirements. In the color separation market the customer's expectations are consistency in the product, and films that when printed will reproduce a clean visual match to the original copy. The variables that affect the quality, consistency, and productivity for the color separation process, were reviewed. The result of this review was that the operator's scanner set-up for tone reproduction is the most critical variable in the process. An estimate of the total cost in the United States caused by rescans due to inconsistency of the scanner set-up gave the result of $462,852,000 per year. One solution to the problem of inconsistency of the scanner set-up seems to be the use of pre-scan systems. The pre-scan system helps the scanner operator determinate the optimum tone reproduction for each color separation. A review of the related literature described seven presetter and seven presetter/previewer systems. To test pre-scan effectiveness the DuPont Image Manager was used to produce the suggested scanner set-up using a computerized method for the tone reproduction determination with very little operator assistance. This study answered the research question, does the DuPont Image Manager improve the quality, consistency, and productivity of color separations made on a Hell DC 399 Scanner? The Hell DC 399 scanner was used. Two hypotheses, and the experimental design are presented. The experiment produced color separations using the judgment of three experienced and three inexperienced scanner operators, and by using the pre-scan system. With the films obtained, Cromalin color proofs were made. Judges evaluated the proofs using pair comparison to study the quality consistency improvement. To study the productivity, the average time required for the scanner set-up using both methods was measured, using the scanner operator's judgment and the DuPont Image Manager. The results of the study yielded the
Analysis of color variation during four-color offset lithographic press runs by monitoring changes in three-filter density values of overprint tints by Curtis Smith( )

1 edition published in 1990 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A densitometric method of monitoring color variation during four-color offset lithographic press runs is proposed. Once an 'OK' press sheet has been approved for the run, a standard color reference is established with which successive sheet pulls can be compared. In order to develop an accurate and repeatable system for monitoring and controlling color variation, densitometric analysis of three color overprinted tints can be utilized. In relation to the OK sheet, changes in the three-filter density readings measured at specific points across successive press sheets, indicate the visual change in color hue and strength that occurs during the press run. This work suggests that offset printers could use the following color control technique: zero the densitometer on a seventy percent overprint control point or dark neutral image area of the OK sheet and compare the difference in density of the same point of any sample sheet. The difference will indicate the change in the amount of red, green and blue light being reflected from that point in the sample relative to the OK sheet and suggest the corrective action necessary to control color variability during the press run
A study on the improvement of ROP newspaper color through modification of the reproductive curve to lighten the overall reproduction by Ronald Assoian( )

1 edition published in 1980 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most run on paper offset newspapers have not shown the capability of producing color reproductions without having the prints subject to a darkening or a muddy look. This problem is basically caused by the absorbency of the newsprint. Since the newsprint is so absorbent, the ink can only be printed to a low solid ink density and coarse screens must be used so the dots do not fill-in. To eliminate this problem, it is believed that if the midtones are reduced on the gray scale during the separation process, and then the wanted colors' dot areas are restored to their normal values, a reduction in the unwanted colors will occur. This should produce a cleaner, less contaminated looking print. To test this theory, a control separation was made using a normal newsprint tone reproduction curve. Then, variations in the separation process were performed to both under and over correct for the amount of contamination in the reproductions. These separations were printed on a Solna four-color 25-inch press while manipulating this press's printing characteristics to make it similar to a Goss Metro, a widely used offset newspaper printing press. The reproductions were shown to 30 randomly selected newspaper observers who rated each printed separation on a scale from 1 (totally unsatisfactory) to 9 (most satisfactory). The results of this experimentation proved that newspaper observers preferred a print with a lightened overall reproduction from the normal newsprint reproduction curve while keeping the apparent visual saturation in the colored areas constant. This is based on the fact that the prints where the midtones were reduced by 10 percent and 5 percent were rated by the observers as being their first and second choices, respectively. The observers' third and fourth choices, however, were reproductions with the midtone values being the normal newsprint tone reproduction or slightly increased, while the least preferred prints were the ones with the midtones lowered the most.

A cost and performance analysis of the three electronic communication systems currently in use in the printing and publishing industry by Susan Richards( )

1 edition published in 1986 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study describes and evaluates the three electronic graphic communication systems presently used by the printing and publishing industry. The author has selected generic system names for each of the systems. These are: System 1: Page Facsimile System 2: Character-Encoding System 3: Pixel Density-Map Page Facsimile systems are primarily used by newspaper publishers. The Character-Encoding and Pixel Density-Map systems are alternate methods primarily used by newsweekly magazine publishers. All three communication systems offer the user a means of transmitting editorial, and in some cases advertising pages, to remote printing facilities for manufacturing and distribution. Each electronic graphic communication system is investigated in depth. The study provides specific information for the potential user, and the current user. The problem for the user is how to best match the communication system, i.e. how the system operates, the cost and performance of that system, with the user's requirement for transmitting graphic information. Based on the full evaluation of each of the systems in the study, the author concludes the following: System 1: Page Facsimile The Page Facsimile system is relatively simple for the user to install and operate. However, all pages must be prepared as camera ready copy prior to transmission. The component costs for this system design are relatively low. Conversely, the method of encoding generates the most data to be transmitted. As a result, the user is required to use expensive transmission lines. Also, with limited data storage, this system requires the immediate transmission and reception of data. From an overall cost standpoint the Page Facsimile system is the least expensive system in the study -The quality levels attained by this system are best suited for newspaper applications, where the text and 4/color quality requirements of the publications are not paramount. These systems offer the user the many advantages of a full communicat
Factors affecting the strength and openability of tight backed, adhesive bound, hardcover volumes by Geoffrey Hyatt( )

1 edition published in 1988 in Undetermined and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

<p>The practice of tight backing adhesive bound, hard cover books has long been thought to enhance durability at the expense of openability. Tight backing is popular in a number of specialized binding markets, the most notable of which is textbook production. Yet despite their prevalence, there is a lack of information available about how the openability and durability characteristics of tight backed books are affected by variable factors in the production process. The purpose of this study was to evaluate three variables involved in the production of tight backed, adhesive bound, hardcover volumes. The three factors considered were bulk of the book block, surface area of adhesive application to the spine and paper stock. Analyses of durability was conducted using two pieces of testing apparatus, the Octagonal Tumbling Drum and the Universal Book Tester. Openability was measured using the Photocopy Openability Test. The statistical design utilized a blocked and replicated three way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), conducted at the 0.05 alpha level. Where the data led to the rejection of the null hypothesis, a Duncan Multiple Range Test was employed to isolate the source of the variation. The procedures determined that bulk had no effect on openability, but became a factor in durability when the book was subjected to severe abuse. Paper stock was deemed to have no significant effect on either durability or openability. With regard to adhesive treatment, an inverted relationship was found to exist between durability and openability. As adhesive coating increased in surface area, durability was enhanced at the expense of openability. This was found to be a non-linear relationship. Finally, it was found that if the proper materials and construction techniques were employed in book production, then bindings with high durability could be created despite effects of other variable factors.</p>
