The event brought together almost 100 representatives of companies and establishments wanting to learn more about opportunities in PE. Harper Corporation of America participated in the tabletop of suppliers, manufacturers, and experts within the field that was set up to introduce attendees to the companies that could best help them learn about the different facets of PE. There were several corporate presentations, a keynote speaker, facility tours, and print demonstrations.
The Harper representative, as part of the QDT flat bed ink proofer system demonstration, explained the differences and unique capabilities of the flexo and gravure processes as they apply to PE. The QDT system simulated flexo solid or imaged printing in addition to direct and offset gravure solid or imaged printing. The demonstration showed the versatility of the QDT system and Harper's laser engraved ceramic XDI imaged gravure cylinders.
