After events in several North American cities, global anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America has declared its 2012 Roadshow Tour a success. The Roadshow, held annually, consists of events for flexographic professionals in various cities across North America.
Montreal and Mississauga, Canada; Minneapolis, MN; Clemson, SC; and Rochester, NY, were the stops along the 2012 Roadshow tour. According to the company, each of these stops offered local flexographic professionals the chance to learn more about Harper Corporation's technologies, products and services. Additionally, they provided opportunities for industry professionals to network with other leaders in their field and learn more about the challenges faced in today's flexographic industry.
Each stop on the Harper Roadshow featured a series of seminars. Presented by local industry leaders, these courses shed light on a variety of topics that are relevant to today's flexographic professionals. For example, some of the subjects discussed include standardization, doctor blades, UV inks, process improvement, and color management.
The last stop on the 2012 tour was Rochester, NY. During this event, speakers from many flexographic companies presented information regarding hot topics in the industry. Some of these speakers included Bill Poulson from Harper Corporation of America, Tim Reece from All Printing Resources, Cori Devlin from DuPont, Jamie Eggleston from 3M, Joe Almeida from Flexo Wash, Bob Loescher from ACTEGA/WIT, and Alex James from HarperScientific.
Harper Corporation of America says it looks forward to continuing the Roadshow tradition in 2013 and is currently developing a new list of venues.
