  • Officials : Aurore DENNEULIN

Goals

  • Know how to evaluate printed documents obtained through different printing processes and on different substrates : visual and loupe observations, comparison, control bar measurements.
  • Know how to use a densitometer et interpret its measurements.
  • Understand the limitations of densitometric measuremments.
  • Understand the necesary adequation between the substrate, the printing process, the consumables and the settings.

Content

This practical work enables students to observe and compare documents obtained using different printing processes, in order to show the interdependency between processes and substrates.
The densitometry principles and the use of a densitometer are explained:

  • definition of the optical density and calibration of the densitometer;
  • measurement of the solid ink density, of the tone value increase, of the contrast index and of the trapping index;
  • plotting tone reproduction curves.
    Interpreting the results is important.

Prerequisites

"Processes for printing industry" course (3FMT2030).

Tests

Written or typed report. an effort in interpreting the results is expected.

Note = note du compte rendu.
The grade is that of the report.

Une appréciation qui évalue l'attitude de l'élève pendant la séance est donnée en complément de la note.

Calendar

The course exists in the following branches:

Environmental security

Si le TP conduit les étudiants autour d'une presse :

  • respect des consignes de sécurité détaillées par l'enseignant avant les travaux;
  • cheveux longs attachés autour des machines, pas de foulard, pas d'habits flottants.
    Les éventuels effluents sont collectés pour être évacués par des prestataires spécialisés / interdiction d'évacuer les effluents dans les réseaux communs.

If the work leads students close to a press :

  • respect the safety rules described by the teacher;
  • no "floating" clothes, attach long hair, etc.
    If effluents are generated, they are to be collected by specialized companies and should not be thrown into the sink or sewage.
