Discussion on the color sequence of four-color machine printing

at present, color printing is usually carried out by using yellow, magenta, cyan and black four-color plates and overprinting in a certain order

theoretically, there are 24 different printing color sequences for four-color printing, and the use of yellow, magenta, cyan and black four-color plates should achieve satisfactory results regardless of the printing color sequence. But in fact, there are many factors that affect the color of printed matter, such as printing area, ink performance, substrate texture, human visual effect, overprint requirements, original type and so on, which will affect the quality of printed matter to varying degrees. The printing color sequence is different, and the color rendering effect of the printed matter is not surprising: "the color sequence is different, and the color sequence is different."? Chant?

Please pay attention to the following questions:? For the arrangement of color sequence of four-color machine printing, the following aspects can be taken as priority factors:

first, color deviation in product process design, the 45 degree color plate should be determined according to the main color of the original, and then the line angle of other color plates should be determined respectively. For example, if the main color is blue or green, the green line is set at 75 degrees, the yellow line is set at 90 degrees, and the color sequence is determined as: Black magenta green yellow. Different printing color sequences will affect the hue of the final printed matter. For example, if the three colors of yellow, magenta and cyan are printed in magenta cyan yellow sequence, a slight greenish bias will be formed; if the color sequence is Cyan Magenta yellow, a slight reddish bias will be formed. The following table describes the influence of the change of printing color sequence on the color rendering effect, excluding black (see the table below). For the color deviation after overprint, the plate making pair can be corrected. At the same time, in order to emphasize the main tone of the printed image, we should also make full use of the special role of color deviation caused by different printing color sequences

second, reverse overprint phenomenon for the wet press wet printing method of four-color offset press, in order to make the ink of the latter color be better transferred to the ink layer of the substrate of the former color, the adhesion of the ink should be reduced in turn along the printing color sequence, otherwise reverse overprint will occur. Unit type lithographic printing machine (such as domestic four-color machine, Heidelberg four-color machine, etc.), when printing, the ink on each color group is directly transferred to the surface of the paper, and the low viscosity components and solvents in the fast fixing ink instantly penetrate into the gap of the paper, leaving high viscosity components and synthetic grease wrapped with pigments to form a gelatinous state and fixed on the surface of the paper, In this process, even if the viscosity of the ink is the same as that of the previous color ink or slightly greater than that of the previous color ink, reverse overprint will not occur. However, the viscosity of the ink is also affected by many factors, such as the thickness of the ink layer, the printing speed, the temperature, the degree of ink emulsification, the amount of ink auxiliary materials, and so on, which is very likely to break the original normal ink transfer relationship. In order to ensure the normal transfer of ink, the viscosity of ink should be reduced in turn along the printing color sequence. For the satellite lithography press, because the inks of various colors are transferred to the image drum in turn before they are transferred to the paper during printing, and the front color ink has no viscosity rising process, this type of printing machine has no natural defects in structure, and it is very easy to produce reverse overprint phenomenon. Therefore, for this type of printing machine, it is necessary to print in strict accordance with the principle of reducing the viscosity of the ink in turn along the printing color sequence, and between the front and back colors, The viscosity value of ink should vary greatly

in addition, when printing paper with smooth surface and low absorption, the influence of ink viscosity on ink transfer should also be considered. For ink viscosity control, generally speaking, when the speed of sheet fed offset press is about RPH, when the speed is about 20000rph, the viscosity is, and when the speed of web offset press is above 20000rph, the viscosity is. After testing, the general order of four-color printing ink viscosity from large to small is black green magenta yellow. Ink is a special fluid. Because the same type of colored ink uses the same binder, the dispersion of colored pigments in the binder is very similar. Under the condition that the inkability of the ink has not changed, it can be roughly considered that the viscosity of the ink increases with the increase of the viscosity of the ink (in fact, the viscosity of the ink and the viscosity of the ink are two different physical quantities, which can not be mistaken for two different expressions of the same nature of the ink). Therefore, in actual printing, the printing color sequence is often determined according to the ink viscosity. For example, the viscosity of Shanghai Peony four-color version 05 ink is: BK 118.82pa S C 48.85pa. S M 47.71pa. S Y14.70pa. S

third, when determining the printing color sequence, the overprint ability of ink is an important consideration. Because the transfer of ink on the surface of paper is much better than that on the film of another color of ink, we should focus on promoting the development of microstructure refinement and stabilization heat treatment process for large forgings of nuclear power pressure vessels. Although the area of overprint is the same as that of overprint, if a small area is printed first and then a large area is overprinted, the overprint part is good for a small area, because it is directly printed on the paper. For a large area, although a small part is overprinted on another color (small area) ink film, it has little impact on a large area as a whole, so the effect is relatively good. On the contrary, if you print a large area first and then a small area, although the ink color transfer in a large area is very good, for a small area, the ink is all overprinted on another color (large area) ink film, and the performance is poor. For the overall color rendering effect, it is not as good as the former. It can be seen from this that when the image and text area on the printing plate is large, especially when it is full, it is usually placed at the back or finally printed. Some people have done experiments on the amount of color overlap of the four-color machine in the forward color sequence and the reverse color sequence. The results show that when the four-color machine is wet, the amount of color overlap of the reverse color sequence is reduced by 11.7 on average compared with the amount of color overlap of the forward color sequence, and the amount of color overlap of the secondary color and the tertiary color is lower, which objectively affects the saturation of the color, especially in the medium and dark parts, the color effect is poor, and the color is not rich

IV. transparency of ink. The ink with ideal transparency should be absolutely transparent. Otherwise, in multicolor printing, light cannot pass through the upper ink layer to the lower ink layer, so the overprint place cannot show the effect of mixing. The hue, saturation and lightness of its composite color will be seriously affected. From the perspective of the transparency of the four-color printing ink currently used, black ink is the worst, transparent yellow ink is the best, magenta ink and green ink depend on the pigments and binders used. Generally, the transparency of green ink is worse than that of red ink. When printing, the ink with poor transparency should be printed first, and the ink with good transparency should be printed later. Of course, the usual four-color machine printing color sequence now places yellow ink on the last color for printing. In addition to the high transparency of yellow ink, there are also the following reasons:

1 The extensive use of low absorption coated paper and the practical need to adapt to the rapid printing of four-color machine overcome the wet overprint problem caused by large-area yellow plate printing first

2. It avoids the tendency of bronze luster after the green ink and black ink are dried, and there is no longer the feeling of impure color

3. The excessive expansion of yellow dots is avoided

v. overprint problem in some printing process design, overprint problem may be the decisive factor of the color sequence of multicolor machine printing. This factor is mainly for the dimensional stability of paper. For example, when the middle of a picture is anti white text with a black box, and the surrounding is a full version of a certain color, the black bar just contacts the full version. At this time, if the paper expands and contracts greatly during printing, it may cause difficulties in overprint. Therefore, when arranging the printing color sequence, the black frame should be printed first, and then the full version of ink should be printed. This is because the paper stretch caused by printing the black frame first is smaller, and it is easier to overprint the full version in black

VI. double shadow generally, the first color in the color sequence of four-color machine printing is often black. However, for some printed materials, such as product catalogs, the utilization rate of the total capacity of the black version is about 73%; Chlor alkali has been losing money in the whole industry for three consecutive years, and there are often most written descriptions. When printing, if the substrate is coated paper with poor texture, the expansion and contraction range of each paper is likely to be different, so the black ink of the first color will be partially transferred to different positions on the surface of the rubber roller of the second color, which will have the risk of double shadow. Double shadow will make the text blurred and affect the product quality. In this case, black should not be placed in the first color printing, but should be placed in the three colors or the final printing is more appropriate

VII. Proofing is not only the last process of plate making, but also the "pioneer" of printing. Proofing plays an important role in evaluating the quality of plate making, and also provides a reliable basis for the printing process. At present, the platform monochrome proofing machine, which is widely used in proofing, is very different from the printing machine in terms of machine structure, printing mode, printing pressure, running speed and so on. Therefore, it is difficult to make the quality of printed matter completely consistent with the sample. However, as long as the relationship between proofing and printing process, especially with printing color sequence, and excluding the infiltration of environmental factors not required for experiments, the gap between print quality and sample can be completely narrowed. The printing quality judgment process of monochrome machine printing and four-color machine printing is consistent. For the monochrome machine, the printing effect of each color can be judged according to the monochrome sample or the laminated sample, and the printing method of the monochrome machine is the same as that of the proofing machine, which belongs to the wet press dry printing method. Therefore, as long as the same printing color sequence is used, the printing quality is easier to control. The four-color printing machine adopts the wet press printing method, and the printed matter is formed at one time, so its printing effect is far from that of the sample. In order to provide a more reliable basis for four-color machine printing and narrow the gap between proofing and printing, the following aspects should be paid attention to when proofing every 1 ton of thermal insulation material: 1 The proofing color sequence is completely consistent with the printing color sequence. 2. Use four-color proofing machine for proofing. 3. Use the same printing plate, paper and ink as the printing for proofing

VIII. Printing gold and silver, printing gold and silver is generally field printing, with thick ink layer and high process requirements. They are usually placed at the end of printing. To sum up, there are many factors that affect the color sequence of four-color machine printing, and some of them are even contradictory. Therefore, we can only choose a compromise scheme when determining the printing color sequence

at present, many printing plants generally use four-color machines to print, and the color sequence is black magenta magenta yellow, or black magenta green yellow. These two printing color sequences are determined after integrating various factors. They are the two basic color sequences of the four-color machine, among which the black Cyan Magenta yellow printing color sequence is widely used, which is usually called the standard color sequence of the four-color machine. However, this is not the only one. It should be determined according to the specific situation when printing, and the new situation cannot be applied mechanically. Once the printing color sequence is determined, don't change it at will during printing, so as not to affect the stability of the picture color balance reproduction
