The Printing Industries of America Mechanical Ghosting Form has been designed to evaluate mechanical ghosting tendencies on a lithographic sheetfed press. Mechanical ghosting is the occurrence of abrupt variations of ink density caused by heavy ink demand on the form. Mechanical ghosting occurs when a press cannot print a uniform ink film on forms with non-uniform ink coverage.

The Mechanical Ghosting Form Can:

  • Evaluate individual printing units for mechanical ghosting.
  • Provide a vehicle for comparison of different lithographic presses for mechanical ghosting.
  • Provide a means for documenting the effects of changing press variables and mechanical ghosting.
