  • LPI on Konica Minolta C5601 with Creo IC-304

    Are there any ways to control the LPI with this printer and RIP? In the creo itself the only options seem to be dot 1, dot 2, line 1 and line 2, without any control on the LPI. And if I try to set a LPI with the PPD using for example adobe software, the creo seems to override the LPI values I enter and do its own screening. Maybe my understanding of the whole thing is not good, any explanation or help welcome

    I don't know your case specifically, but generally with this kind of digital machine you get a fixed set of screenings that were tailored to it, and that's it. Like you said, you can't set your own screening parameters - the DFE simply ignores them. That's not a surprising behavior.

      I have the same machine and rip, I've used Dot 1 for everything. When I first got it 6 years ago I played with it and discovered Dot 2 works o.k. sometimes if you experience banding or weird screens. All dot 2 does is produce a courser screen I'm told but I haven't really noticed a big difference. It's only 600 DPI so don't expect too much out of it as far as really smooth gradients and such but if kept calibrated and maintained well it's a good workhorse and produces "very good" prints. You can print using Acrobat defaults but the machine will take over if outside it's capabilities and just print it's default. I also have upgraded to a C1070 for 1200 dpi and print all the more critical work over there. I still love my 6501Pro though.

      Zero Setup Time:
      Myth Or Reality?

      As the twenty-first century opened, Koenig & Bauer had already anticipated the need for the coexistence of conventional and digital printing, and had begun to develop the technology that is today empowering offset printers to meet those challenges.
