An online chat about SPIR@L with Acorn Web Offset

Virtual coffee meetings are short online chats of the ECO3 (previously Agfa Offset Solutions) HQ software team with their users about implementing new technologies, tailoring our solutions to their needs and best practices.

In the chat below, Mark Roberts, Managing Director of Acorn Web Offset, discusses their experience implementing SPIR@L screening technology on both their heatset and sheetfed offset presses. Acorn Web Offset is a UK-based specialist in high-quality magazine printing. The company is a long-time ECO3 customer, using the Apogee Cloud prepress workflow and ECO3 CtP systems and plates.


This new screening technology replaces the traditional ink dot with more efficient shapes such as spirals. This has a positive impact on print quality and results in a crystal-clear image every time without effort.
