Hamillroad launches Bellissima flexo screening

Hamillroad Software, which specializes in developing prepress software, is set to launch its Bellissima screening solution for flexo presses at this month’s Label Expo show in Brussel.

Hamillroad’s Bellissima is a digitally modulated screening solution for flexo users.

It is based on Hamillroad’s Digitally Modulated Screening approach that has already been proven in the Auraia DMS for litho printing. Bellissima can handle 4000 dpi resolution as well as 100 percent solid surface patterning options and solid object protection. It is capable of producing high-quality prints equivalent to 350-450 lpi with no colour shifts, misregistration issues or moire. Used with fixed palette inks it’s said to give smooth flat tints with the ability to print highlight dots down to as low as 1.0 percent and shadow dots up to 99.5 percent.

Andy Cave, CEO of Hamillroad, says that it can help save up to ten percent on ink, adding: “We’ve eliminated moiré, the printed highlight dots are down to 1%, and the shadow dots are up to 99.5% meaning beautifully smooth vignettes that fade to zero are now a reality. A printer can breathe new life into their existing printing press using Bellissima. We significantly reduce common problems including bounce, barring, and slur – all features which are patented in Bellissima.”
