FORUM 2021 has moved to a fully virtual event.

Establishing Your Starting Points FIRST (101)

    May 14

    10:00 a.m. ET

    FTA’s Virtual Conference Center

When documented protocols are not followed, production becomes unpredictable. Where does that unpredictability originate? In prepress, on the pressroom floor or at the customer?
Discovering its origins begins by examining internal standard operating procedures. Once they are documented and aligned to FIRST, production becomes repeatable and predictable.
Learn how establishing these procedures can streamline the flexographic workflow while yielding the results outlined in FIRST.

How Inks Can Impact Efficiency in the Pressroom

Shawn Scheel, ACTEGA

The variability of ink, and equipment associated with the delivery of ink, can have a significant effect on efficiency in the pressroom. Having an awareness of how to control those variables can result in significant increases in productivity.

Shawn will address proper inspection and quality control when inks reach a printing facility, and what measures are likely in place to control those products.

Additionally, information will be offered regarding on-site handling of inks before and during printing, identifying “areas of interest” where opportunities for improved efficiency may be present.

Plate Making 101

Cori Devlin, DuPont Cyrel® Solutions

Cori brings an overview of why plate optimization is critical to having consistent, repeatable color and results on press. She will discuss the tools necessary for plate making optimization.

Between different workflows, round and flat top dots, different screening options and other variables, process control requirements are even more essential to ensure repeatable and consistent results for your customers.
