Rotogravure & Flexo DotGain and Curve Discussion.


New member
Hello i hope every thing is good ,
in flexo there is a target dot gain compensation curve for flex plate , some company do it linear and some using a target curve make the 50% to be 65 % for example .

in the rotogravure for plastic film there is also a Curve for the Engraving Machine should it be linear or it should be 15% dotgain for 50% ,mean 50% to be 65%.??

what i want to ensure that do i need to have dotgain value in the engraving curve or make it linear ?
