Flexographic Technical Association’s (FTA) 2015 Annual Forum will address various printing challenges head-on in the “Multi-Market Commonalities—Alike But Different” session. Taking place Wednesday, May 6 from 10:30 p.m. to 12:00 p.m., the session will serve as the finale to 2015’s program.
Chaired by Geoff Roznak, Great Northern Corporation and Rose McKernon, FTA, attendees will hear first-hand experiences right down to the solutions identified directly from printers that service the flexible packaging, containers, labels and corrugated market segments. Each presenter, a seasoned printer, has had to match work by different printers and processes to successfully overcome the difficulties and ultimately deliver optimal results for their customers. In addition to flexography, subject matter will focus on a variety of print processes including digital, lithographic, dry offset, gravure, screen, hot and cold stamping and combination printing.
Session topics and their presenters are:
- “Digital Printing for Flexible Packaging: A Partner to Flexography or A Replacement?” Kevin Kelly, Emerald Packaging Inc.
- “Managing A Cross Platform Approach to Meet the Needs of A Complex Marketplace,” Bob Feldman, Constantia Label
- “Decorating in 3D,” Kirk Birchler, Berry Plastics Corporation
- “Putting the ‘Flex’ in Flexographic – Color Matching For Different Substrates & Print Technologies,” Chuck Buscaglia, Berry Plastics Corporation
The 2015 Annual Forum, themed “Hitting the Perfect Harmony,” is scheduled for May 3-6 at the Omni Nashville Hotel in downtown Nashville, TN. Coinciding with Forum is the annual InfoFlex Exhibition, slated for May 4-5 at the Music City Center.
