Paper Abstract

Changing demands in advertising and printing business has made the digital press systems valid competitors to offset technology for specific markets. Whereas offset is still superior in quality and high volume printing, the time consuming and costly prepress activities, as well as the need for huge investments in the press, make the all-in-one formula very attractive. How to link a fast/cheap machine with decent output-quality, making use of electrophotography? We use electrophotography as a pretext for making a stability analysis of several halftoning systems. As shown in a previous article (Ref. 3) we use the Fourier characteristics to figure out its dependence. In a first introduction we point out why electrophotography brings us to this matter. The further outline of the article scans through a list of opposite screening systems where we focus on the color stability in function of registration.
