The printing element SandyProfessional for newspapers

SandyScreen`s printing element (screen dot) SandyProfessional replaces the traditional AM screens still used and offers advantages against hybrid and FM screening methods.

It improves the printing and image quality noticeably. The screen retreats into the background and is no longer disturbing due to its finer resolution.

SandyProfessional is applicable to web and sheet-fed printing. The existing printing techniques and installations need not be changed.

The screen frequency can be adapted to the product in a range of 122-152L/inch or even higher in special cases. Internal printing standards can be maintained or re-defined (IFRA/ISO).

SandyProfessional has been specially designed for CtP and CtcP.
