Improve Print Performance with a Single-Color Test
A single-color benchmark test is an effective way to find print improvements and optimize press time. It’s just a question of getting the planning, execution and evaluation right, says Print Specialist Mike Huey in his new Tech Tip.
There are many reasons to make use of a single-color benchmark trial, from selecting the best plate pattern for a job, looking for uptime improvements to evaluating a new anilox tape.
Setting goals, planning how to test the goals, setting-up the execution correctly and excellent evaluation are all needed to use benchmarks for print improvement.
