Can anyone point me to a site that has information on approximate dot gain and recommended calibration curves for Staccato screening?

This is my first post and I am hoping someone here might be able to give me some valuable feedback. I am currently trying to make a harmony calibration curve for staccato 25 dot. I have requested we have the press fingerprinted for the staccato and conventional screening so that we can have two sets of plate curves.

At this time I am not going to get what I need and will have to build some curves using my best guess. We have produced several jobs using the conventional screenings calibration curve and had reasonable results. I would like to adjust them further and was hoping for a little input from others who are using FM screening.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to find this information or compare my curves with what others are using it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Jon
