The flexographic printing technology uses a flexible relief plate to transfer inks from a cylinder to a substrate. The flexographic print response is controlled by the highlight gain and minimum printable dot. The minimum printable dot is accomplished by using Mindot bump and cutoff curves. This activity is to control the response of a flexographic plate by using Mindot bump curves.
