Hamillroad to Launch Screening System

CAMBRIDGE, UK | Hamillroad Software, specialists in prepress solutions for the printing industry, will launch Bellissima DMS, a Digitally Modulated Screening engineered specifically for flexographic printing applications, at Labelexpo Europe 2017, September 25–28, at the Brussels Expo in Brussels, Belgium.

Company says Bellissima allows high quality prints equivalent to 350-450 lpi with unrivaled image reproduction and no color shifts on misregistration. Utilizing fixed palette inks, the screening is said to deliver smooth flat tints and moiré-free prints. Vignettes reportedly fade smoothly to nothing, enabled by printed highlight dots as low as 1.0% and shadow dots to 99.5%. Working optimally at 4,000 dpi, the patented screening incorporates features including 100% solid surface patterning options and solid object protection.

Bellissima DMS reportedly reduces or eliminates printing press issues including bounce, barring, and slur; improves efficiency of the press room; and utilizes existing printing press equipment.

“The benefits don’t stop there, says Hamillroad CEO Andy Cave. “Bellissima is helping printers save between 5 and 10 percent on ink, reduce makeready times, and create a sound basis for the implementation of fixed palette printing. As well as the benefits highlighted above, Bellissima is rivaling the quality of print typically associated with offset and gravure and is challenging digital as the future for flexible packaging and labels.”
