ISO 12647-4:2014 specifies a number of process parameters and their values to be applied to four-colour publication gravure printing. The parameters and values are chosen in view of the complete process covering the process stages "colour separation", "making of the printing forme", "proof production", and "production printing".
ISO 12647-4:2014 is applicable:
? directly, to publication gravure printing, including magazines, catalogues, and commercial materials,
? directly, to half-tone and continuous tone proofing processes that predict the colourimetric results of gravure printing, and
? by analogy, to process-colour gravure package printing.
