BW printer & K3 ink mix

Hi,

I want to make a BW-printer (Epson 3880) Quad Tone RIP

I´m new in the printing-area and I´m not sure if I am thinking right…

I´ll take 7 channels (yellow-channel will be a reserve in case one channel will be down)

Becouse of the black inks there well be some purple/blue shade, I know.

In which proportion should I mix the PK/LK/LLK inks and which base should I take….glossy-ink? Cleaner?

I think glossy-ink will be better than cleaner because (I heard) the LK and LLK inks contain glossy-ink.

Version 1:

PK/MK...

LK.........25% PK + 75% LK

LLK.......LK

C............50% LK+ 50% LLK

VM.........LLK

LC..........70% LLK + 30% glossy-ink

LM.........40% LLK + 60% glossy-ink

Y.............reserve

What do you think?
