Omet/EskoArtwork seminar draws full house at Clemson

November 17, 2009

Product demonstrations and education about expanded gamut printing topped the agenda.

A capacity crowd of 60 participants filled the Sono Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics at Clemson University recently to learn about new technologies and expanded gamut printing at a two-day seminar sponsored by Omet and EskoArtwork.

Presentations were made and demonstrations were conducted by several packaging industry suppliers: EskoArtwork showed its new Equinox expanded gamut and high definition software; Harper Corporation exhibited its new QD proofing system; the Fastmatch color management system was demonstrated by Environmental Inks & Coatings; Flint Group exhibited its ultra-thin printing plates, and Anderson & Vreeland showed its new plate measuring devices.

Omet, whose Varyflex press is a feature at the institute, demonstrated the low waste and quick change features of the press, running three jobs on two substrates.

Featured speakers included Mark Samworth of EskoArtwork, who spoke on the advantages of expanded gamut printing for packaging, and John Fulcoly of Packaging CPR, who addressed the commercial considerations of expanded gamut printing for packaging based on his experience implementing a large North American expanded gamut platform.

Omet and EskoArtwork will repeat the seminar in the spring of 2010 as well as present seminars and workshops on other pertinent topics next year at the Sonoco Institute. Omet is represented in North America by Matik.
