New Tool to Improve Large-Format Printing

PITTSBURGH, PA | Printing Industries of America’s Center for Technology and Research has developed two large-format offset press-test forms, critical for package printers. The 35x50-in. test form is run on press sheets with width sizes ranging from 51–56 in., while the 42x62-in. test form is for press sheets with width sizes ranging from 63–65 in.

The press-test forms fit large-format presses, eliminating the need for extra stepping commonly used in package printing. By objectively assessing press attributes and print conditions, these press-test forms are one of the primary ways to analyze printing problems, control color conditions, achieve quality printing with less waste, and optimize press performance with reduced makeready time.
