New technique for monitoring ink-water balance on an offset press
An acoustic technique, with microphone placed near the print nip exit on a sheet-fed offset press during trial printing of newsprint, was used to provide information relating to splitting of the ink-fountain solution film. The average acoustic power increased with tack of the ink used and with target optical density. Further, average power decreased during each run, reasonably strongly correlated to increase in fountain solution consumption. This indicates that average power is primarily...[Show more]
