Sandy-P - screen dot for highest printing quality

The Sandy-P screen dot creates high quality screening improving printed products compared to conventional screen dots. Generating a wider number of printable tonal values through delayed dot closure prints are enhanced in the dark and shadowy areas. Furthermore higher screening frequency can be used to improve detail of images. Particularly skin areas benefit from Sandy-P's homogenous gradations, eliminating tonal value skips.
All of these advantages can be achieved by using Sandy-P without affecting printing process stability. No changes to plate setter or press setup are required. Existing equipment will not have to be replaced or retrofitted.
