Auraia DMS


Auraia DMS perfects halftone screening by achieving the high level of image detail associated with FM/stochastic screening as well as producing ultra-smooth flat tints as smooth as, and typically smoother than, AM/XM screening.

Conventional AM/XM screen

175 lpi (actual)

Auraia DMS

200 – 400 lpi (equivalent)

Auraia DMS

400 – 600 lpi (equivalent)

The printing result is convincing with very high detail and a fantastic brilliance. Images get an almost photo-realistic representation and colored surfaces appear printed as a spot color. In addition, we save about 20 percent of ink.

Auraia Digitally Modulated Screening utilizes ground-breaking patented technology to create a unique product that combines the best characteristics of AM, FM, XM, GS and CS screening techniques. Auraia DMS dramatically enhances quality, stability, and gamut, while delivering ink savings over conventional screening. Auraia DMS provides these benefits in real production environments under plate and press conditions which are not usually capable of FM or high lpi AM/XM screening.
