March 2, 2010

Sponsors Omet and EskoArtwork are joined by shrink experts and suppliers presenting hands-on demonstrations of the full shrink experience.

“Think before you Shrink” is the name of a free seminar on shrink sleeves to be held March 29-31 at Clemson University’s Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics. The event will feature presentations by experts in the business, as well as demonstrations of the full shrink-film production process by Omet, EskoArtwork, Anderson & Vreeland, Harper, Karlville Development, Flint Group, and others.

Featured speakers include Ron Ryback, president of Ryback & Ryback Consulting Inc., who has more than five decades of flexible packaging experience; and Will Schretzman, director of packaging and technical sales at Verst Logistics Group, who has worked in the printing and converting industry for over 25 years.

The main feature of the seminar will be the hands-on demonstration of the entire shrink film decorating process. Attendees will see two bottle shapes designed, imaged, printed, seamed and shrunk to a finished product.
Sponsors and their technologies include: EskoArtwork’s 3D design in Illustrator using Studio and Visualizer, and the North American introduction of Toolkit for Shrink Sleeves & Shapes; Flint Group with ultra-thin plates; Anderson & Vreeland with plate measuring devices; Asahi Photoproducts’ water wash plate imaging system; Harper’s QD proofing system; Environmental Inks & Coatings’ Fastmatch color management system; Klockner Pentaplast’s shrink films; Omet’s Varyflex gearless and shaftless sleeve press; and Karlville Development’s K1 Seamer for digital and narrow web flexo applications, and the Tornado Shrink Tunnel, which operates using hot air.
