Stork Prints' RandomScreen® for Moiré-free printing
Stork Prints has introduced a new screen, called RandomScreen®. The main benefit of the new RandomScreen® is to suppress so called Moiré effects.
Moiré is an effect that occurs, when two regular structures interfere and thus a new, third pattern is created. This can happen when a screen’s regular mesh structure and a line raster’s grid structure meet. Another source of Moiré can be the construction pattern of the textile. Some textiles like knitted goods, georgette or javanaise show a tendency for this effect
To avoid these Moiré effects, the holes in a RandomScreen® are not arranged on straight lines as is the case for conventional screens. The position of each hole is just slightly out of line and therefore there is no risk of raster's grid interference.
The hole shape is more streamlined which influences the paste flow positively. The result is evident: a significantly improved printability and superb results for Moiré sensitive designs.
However, the RandomScreen® can also be used for other, more complex designs containing grey values and fine lines and details. RandomScreen® has the capability of solving engraving problems for geometrical raster designs and Moiré effects in halftones.
