Hamillroad Software was born out of the pioneering work ot Robert Miller who developed many productivity and performance enhancement concepts for the benefit of Harlequin RIP users. These ideas created a base of technological innovation ripe tor further development and commercial exploitation.

As a vehicle to develop this technology even further and bring it to market, Hamillroad Software Limited was incorporated in the UK.

Led by CEO Andy Cave, the original creator and Chief Designer of the Harlequin RIP and founder member of Harlequin Limited (now Global Graphics Software Limited).The company continues co-operative research and development efforts, as well as sales and marketing, on a worldwide basis.

If we're going to develop a product, it has to be significantly better than anything else

Bellissima DMS is Hamillroad's Digitally Modulated Screening for flexographic printing, delivering a previously unobtainable level of image reproduction for flexo..

Rivaling the quality of print typically associated with offset and gravure, Bellissima I DMS is challenging digital as the future for flexible packaging and labels.

Innovative flexo technology

Bellissima DMS utilizes innovative technology that's a fusion of the best characteristics ot AM, FM, XM, GS and CS screening while avoiding their limitations and problems, and it dramatically enhances the quality and stability ot flexo presswork.

Digital modulation (DM)

This unique screening digitally modulates every pixel it produces, thereby precisely controlling the dots in each separation while its "stochastic rosette" interleaves the dots between the separations to eliminate noise and moire. In addition, the stochastic rosette maximizes the ink-on-paper area and minimizes the amount of ink-on-ink, to expand the available color gamut while removing color shifts due to misregistration.

The screening analyzes each pixel to ensure that no dot is too small to plate or print but is not large enough to be visible. Dots are created in a carefully controlled maimer...
