Dunwoody salutes flexo with an open house
Dunwoody College of Technology, Minneapolis, will sponsor an open house this month. The theme is “Welcome to the New Age of Flexo Workflow.” The event will take place October 21-22.
Industry contributors to the Graphics and Printing Technologies Program at Dunwoody have come together to sponsor the program. Each event will highlight all aspects of a flexographic workflow using digital prepress and imaging technologies, narrow web UV and water based flexo printing equipment and press ancillaries. All are accompanied by digital proofing systems and quality measurement tools.
The event is designed for converters who want to learn about the functions of an entire workflow, from artwork through finished production of a flexo operation. Converters will be able to see how each aspect of prepress, proofing, printing and finishing can be maximized while incorporating FIRST practices and principles. The event will also allow Dunwoody College to highlight its printing program and to showcase its facilities and equipment.
“We are excited to host an event that will allow converters to witness how the latest ideas and technology, aligned with FIRST, are incorporated at Dunwoody. I’m personally excited to present the program and live demonstrations starring our greatest asset, the students,” says Joe Tuccitto, Dunwoody’s flexography instructor. “It also allows Dunwoody to celebrate its many successes of the Graphics and Printing Program with our key contributors, because without them none of our activities would be possible.”
The live demonstration and discussions will focus on the speed and accuracy required to be competitive in today’s flexo printing environment. From initial design through artwork and layout, the event will provide a close-up view of the process, examining each aspect separately. The result will be an impressive display of flexo capabilities.
