Offset Printing

Offset Printing

Another important advantage of the offset process is the scope for adjustment of the ink density used in the printing process. You can adjust the quantity of ink used on the fountain rollers by using the screw keys. The keys reduce/increase the gap between the blade and the fountain rollers thus affecting the amount of ink used in printing. This difference in the ink density leads to differences in intensity of colour. Modern offset printers use an electronic system for screw key control.
