CONT

Distribution of the ink film. The spreading of the ink film until it becomes sufficiently thin for application to the printing-image carrier is called "distribution," and the rollers by which this result is accomplished are known as "distributing rollers" or as "distributors," for short. In the distribution phase, ink is transferred from steel rollers to rubber rollers and vice versa until finally an ink film is deposited on the form.
