Nozzles, picoliter, thermal printhead, piezo-electric printhead, drop-on-demand(DoD), continuous inkjet, binary, greyscale are specification describing the digital printhead. Understanding the meaning of these terms will help you understand how the printer operates and will help you to select the right digital printhead for the right job. However, it is rare that for the supplier to stop and explain them. So here is where we stop and explain it to you.

Must know screening concepts to succeed in Flexo printing
AM screening and FM screening both has its advantages and disadvantages. In general FM screening are more suitable for details images, highlights, and shadows. AM screening performs better in mid-tones. FM are more consistent in its ink delivery, therefore, some say that it is able to produce a very stable appearance.
