Concentric screens on Nexus was setup and used from Nexus Expose tickets.

In Imaging Engine, screens are used (selected) from an Expose ticket. However, as setup of some screens are not part of the base screens, it is done from a dedicated screening application (Screen Manager, HD Flexo). So, not only the way of setup is changed but also the screen format.

Nexus customers having Concentric screens, will get Screen Manager 14 with a permanent license!

Screen Manager 14 is part of the Imaging Engine 14 products installer. So, when you have the license activated, the Screen Manager application will be installed next to your Imaging Engine rip.


Check the Concentric Screen settings in your Nexus Worklow

Open your Nexus workflow and check the settings in Rasterize Separations which is shown in the example screenshot given below:

Open Screenmanager 14.x on the Imaging Engine PC and follow the steps given below (steps are also mentioned in the screenshot):

  1. Click the + button to make a new screen.
  2. Enter a name, e.g.: Concentric.
  3. Select your original dot - Paragon, e.g.; Paragon round.
  4. Click the Concentric tab and switch on Concentric screening.
  5. Define the following settings for your Concentric:
    1. Ring Thickness
    2. Space Thickness
    3. Grade
    4. Select the Pixel Area radio button for Screen levels Sort On.
    5. In the Ruling dependency drop-down menu, select not ruling dependent option.
