By transferring more ink than a standard solid surface, HD technology can also increase the SID by 0.1 to 0.3 , depending on the print application. HD flexo with microcells offers the best balance between SID increase and good solid appearance. This minimizes ink consumption on the press along with smooth and pinhole-free solids. In Figure 5, you can see that, with equivalent ink levels, the special screen- ing generates a higher solid ink density, but with a smoother ink laydown. Figure 6 represents an image of the surface struc- ture with a 75 percent tint. The small cell structures do not come close to the edge of the elements by the specific RIPping, so that edges of objects and screening dots still stay sharp.
