5 Best Bets for Your Offset Press: If you can’t Measure it, you can’t Control It!
- Inkometer readings measure if the ink tack sequence is correct for proper wet ink trapping.
- Grindometer measurents ensure that the paper has been milled properly.
- Calibrate abrasion testers indicate that the inks have set and will have the proper scuff resistance and durability that your customer will be pleased with.
Studying best offset practices like these will help you take control and optimize your pressroom. If you want efficient hands-on training for offset printing, Lloyd will also lead the training workshop Extreme Offset: Troubleshoot, Control, Optimize, hosted July 23–25, 2013, at our headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
You will learn proven techniques to measure, troubleshoot, and optimize press performance in our onsite printing facility and Paper and Ink Laboratory. Registration is open for this course.
