Harper GraphicSolutions, the technical service division of anilox supplier Harper Corporation, has announced the schedule for its 2009 Harper Flexographic Solutions Tour. Once again, the Harper team has invited co-suppliers and other industry experts to join it for a series of free one-day seminars that focus on troubleshooting prepress and print room problem areas, and cover the latest technologies and techniques to improve print quality and press efficiency. The tours will take place in five US locations.
There is no charge for these one-day seminars, and businesses may send an unlimited number of staff members. Early registration is recommended due to limited seating. Sessions are designed for print managers; print supervisors; operators; prepress managers; graphic designers; ink, plate and pre-press suppliers; and purchasing and/or general managers.
Specific seminars will vary by location, but sample topics include troubleshooting diecutting issues, press inputs for success, prepress practices to control color management, producing predictable and reproducible flexo, rotary die selection and operations, ink handling for paper and film, plate mounting, and the effects of substrate differences on the printing process.
