The Ugra Plate Measuring Reference is the reference for the tonal value measurement on printing plates. The PMR consists of a precisely measured aluminum thermal offset printing plate.



Ugra Plate Measuring Reference

The Plate Measuring Reference (PMR) is used to periodically check the measurement accuracy of plate measuring devices. It helps ensure you are meeting the requirements within the scope of certifications such as ISO 9001 or ISO 12647-2/ProcessStandard Offset

It consists of a 13 cm x 20 cm thermal offset printing plate bearing 2 halftone value step wedges:

  • one amplitude-modulated halftone wedge with a screening of 60 L/cm (152 lpi)
  • one frequency-modulated halftone wedge with a dot size of 20 µm

Each wedge has 15 halftone patches (6 x 6 mm patches) ranging from 2% to 98%. The dot percentages are precisely measured at the Fogra Institute. Each reference plate is marked with a reference code. The delivered reference values are only valid for the corresponding plate.

The user can measure the halftone patches with the plate measurement device at his disposal, and compare these results with the supplied Fogra reference measurements. If the results are within tolerance ±1%, the measuring device works correctly. If they differ, it provides a clear picture of the situation and a decision can be made about whether it is best to adjust the measurement device or whether the difference in the tonal values can be taken into account from now on in the daily usage.

The determination of the tonal transfer curves between data set and reproduction on the printing plate will now be more consistent and soundly based. For the record, Fogra bases its measurements on the reference measurements of the Bundesanstalt für Materialprüfung in Berlin (BAM) (Federal Materials Testing Institute in Berlin).


The Plate Measuring Reference has a guaranteed lifetime of 1 year. Its contrast decreases over time due to the effects of light. It is recommended to store the PMR in the packaging to protect against light.
