High quality offset printing: an evolutionary approach
Print media are still very important for everyone's daily life. Current efforts are concerned with the application of the wellestablished offset-printing technology to other media, particularly cardboards, which require some substantial adaptations. To this end, this paper proposed a new specific pre-processing stage. This pre-processing stage can be configured by several parameters. This paper optimizes these parameter settings by using evolution strategies. It turns out that this optimization reduces the required energy and the number of wrongly generated pixels by about 15%, respectively.
