Harlequin Cross-Modulated screening (HXM)

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; both Harlequin Core and Harlequin MultiRIP.

In the current printing-on-paper marketplace, the challenge between increasing costs, particularly paper, results in lower quality papers being used coupled with higher customer expectations. HXM screening is a solution that addresses both these issues. You can use higher screen rulings without major re-tooling, producing visually higher quality printing. The range of screens offered within the HXM screen set can handle both matte and gloss stocks.

HXM screening is a combination of Traditional Amplitude Modulated (AM) screening and Pseudo-Randomized Frequency Modulated (FM) screening, which allows higher screen rulings than is provided by AM screens alone.

A wide variety of screen frequency/resolution combinations are available with Euclidean and round dots at offset angles. For the flexographic market a wide range of resolutions and rulings are included, each with a number of variants using different minimum dot sizes.
