Colour Prediction Model for Ceramic Tiles

Colour Prediction Models allow us to estimate the colour of a printed dithered design as a function of the some physical characteristics of the printed dots which form part of that design. The analysis of the applicability of Colour Prediction Models (CPMs) to the ceramic tile industry is relevant because CPMs could relate printing problems at dot level (microscopic level), i. e., shape of dots, area of occupation, ink density distribution, with colour variation at macroscopic level. They could be used as a control system of the printing quality. In fact, as it has already been proved elsewhere, printing systems are the source of almost the half of the defects that appear on the tile surface.
