    Green in Yellow ink fountain roller

    Your ink is NOT being physically contaminated by any back-trapping. You are seeing an optical illusion. The ink in the fountain looks very yellow because it is very thick (mass-tone) and more opaque. The ink on the fountain ball roller looks green because it is much thinner and now more...

    How to reduce total ink coverage on Fogra 39l for taccato paper

    Out of curiosity, are you using anti-setoff spray powder, or in-line AQ or water-base coating? I know you think a prepress solution is needed but there may also be other press solutions too.

    When you say you have a problem printing on Toccata paper (gloss coated), do you mean drying issues, like setoff, blocking, rubbing? Fogra 39 TIC/TAC is 300%. Steve Suffoletto

    Missregistration between fist and second printing station.

    Is your paper flat? Are there any indications of the paper being wavy or tight edge due to moisture content or relative humidity (HR)? Also, is the paper grain long and not short? Steve Suffoletto

    Ctp plate curves for screens

    You said "A dot gain of 15 on a 50 is pretty extreme."? Actually , it sounds just about right if it's on a gloss coated paper. ISO 12647-2:2015 states a Tone Value Increase (TVI) of 16% for gloss coated paper. This uses conventional Murray-Davies (N=1) formula. You mentioned a business form, so...

    Where do colours start and end?

    After some further thaught, the hue angle range for orange may be more limited, 45'-65'

    Where do colours start and end?

    The "science/math" is to use either the CIE hue angle (h') or the wavelength in nanometers (nm). The bigger issue is the subjective/personal definition of "orange." I would fan out the Pantone book and "find" your range of orange colors, then measure the start/first and end/last to get h' and...
