Of the many new developments helping to heat up regional and global product packaging production, according to experts presenting at a current series of regional seminars on the subject, electron beam technology is a brightly glowing ember in this fire of innovation.

Targeting flexible packaging producers, label printers, folding carton converters and brand owners, EB Benefits in Packaging is a regional one-day event designed to provide an overview of EB technology and the impact it is having on the printing, packaging, and converting industries. This seminar will be being held in Atlanta on Nov. 11, 2014 at the Wyndham Buckhead.  
Emphasizing how today’s packagers, materials developers and press manufacturers are adopting their business models to accommodate EB use, the event will cover the financial, sustainability and safety ramifications of using EB technology. This regional seminar is the second of three planned events: a successful inaugural seminar was held in Milwaukee in September; and a final seminar will occur on Jan. 13, 2015 in Newark, N.J.  
Hosted by EB system manufacturer PCT Engineered Systems, the day will feature a number of industry leaders presenting insight on a variety of EB-related package printing topics, including:
  • Recent EB Innovations That Are Changing Package Converting
  • Sustainability Benefits of EB Curing in Food Packaging
  • EB Chemistry’s Role in Global Food Packaging Safety 
  • Ink and Coating Evolution To Accommodate EB Curing
  • EB Printing Press Design Considerations, and
  • Putting It All Together:  A Customer Case Study in Implementing EB
The cost to participate is $295 per person (until Nov. 3, when the price goes up to $395), which includes all seminar and presentation materials, lunch, and an onsite networking reception following the seminar.
