    METHOD FOR PREPARATION AND SETTING OF A COLOR TONER-BASED PRINTER FOR COLOR MANAGED PRINT PRODUCTION COMPARABLE TO OFFSET TECHNOLOGY

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 12 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 128-131

    The paper presents some of the results, obtained during the research on scientific project at TU-Sofia № 171ПР0012-06 “Research on the influence of using raster image processors (RIP) on the quality of color printing of poligraphic digital proofing systems“. The purpose of the parer is to present an optimized method for preparation of digital color toner based printer for color managed printing. The printer being researched uses specialized color server (RIP), that introduces many new functionalities, but at the same time introduces new difficulties related to setting the corrects settings in order to obtain predictable and repeatable quality prints. There are not many references in the literature to the correct way ot making these settings and the paper will be very usefull to those interested in the research of such printers as well as to practitioners in the field of digital printing, because it presents, in an organized way, the author’s experience in the research of these printers and his practical experience in the field.

    RESEARCH ON THE CAPABILITIES OF COLOR TONER-BASED PRINTER FOR QUALITY PRINTING USING CUSTOM GENERATED ICC COLOR PROFILES

    Industry 4.0, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 1, pg(s) 39-42

    The paper presents some of the results, obtained during the research on scientific project at TU-Sofia № 171ПР0012-06 “Research on the influence of using raster image processors (RIP) on the quality of color printing of digital proofing systems“. The purpose of the paper is to present a research on the quality of color printing of and toner based printer using custom generated ICC profiles. Before the current research, the printer is properly adjusted, calibrated and linearized according to the method published in previous research of the author. The generated profiles are then thoroughly tested and analyzed using specialized software. Their color gamut is compared to the standard offset gamut. The color rendering of the profiles is evaluated through testing and a general conclusion of the benefits of the process is provided.
