Z3100: Ink usage on German Etching 310g
« on: March 10, 2008, 07:44:59 AM »

Hi folks!

For a major amount of prints on Hahnemuehle German Etching 310g I would like to know before starting how much ink is used by the Z3100 on a sqm in average (dark print with saturated colors).

Are there any problems known between the Z and the paper? Roller marks?

Thanks for any input!!!  

Clem

Nobody printing on Hahnemuehle German Etching 310?  

Hmm, maybe someone knows about the ink usage per sqm for similar papers from Hahnemühle, like Aquarella or Textured (around 300g)? That would be very kind...  

With interest I read the Wilhelm Research tests on their website and found, that they only tested HP Hahnemuehle Paper for the Z3100. Does the surface of the Hahnemuehle paper in the HP version differ from the original Hahnemuehle surface? Is it possible, that there is a difference in duration because of this fact?

Thanks for any info on this!

Best from Germany,

Clem

It will not give an exact number but good enough for a cost estimation.

On the fade properties of the Vivera pigment on HM paper coatings check Image Engineering's site (HM Photorag). Different numbers to Wilhelm but with enough correlation. Compare to Wilhelm's bare bulb exposure.  I guess your German is sufficient. There's also a report im Februar Heft von ColorFoto  mit 50 Papier qualitäten and the three pigment inks. There's no knowledge what the HP coating versus the HM coating achieves other than a reported image quality gain.

Ernst!

Thanks for the link, that really helped. I searched the forum for the keywords before opening my thread but did not get the thread you pointed at. However...

Have a nice time.
