FPPA Announces Hands-On Technical Workshop

The Flexographic Pre-Press Platemakers Association (FPPA) will host its annual Fall Workshop on September 27-28, 2023, at Clemson University in Greenville, South Carolina. This two-day technical workshop will provide plant and production managers with insights into corrugated printing and workflows.

The technical and production staff who manufacture flexographic printing plates rarely see their work in action, which is a missed opportunity to understand the evolving needs of their customers, according to the FPPA. A unique opportunity, the Fall Workshop offers this important holistic perspective.

At this workshop, attendees will head to Clemson University to see a flexographic printing press live in action. Clemson graphic arts faculty will also teach sessions on substrate trends, ink system best practices, and interpreting printing targets and strategies for troubleshooting.

The first day of this workshop will feature a sample in-person press setup and run, substrate print comparisons, guided on-press troubleshooting, and conclude with a tour of the Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics on Clemson’s campus. 

The second day of the workshop will build on the first, with a hands-on guided analysis of samples from the previous day’s test run. Through this immersive process, attendees will learn from industry experts on technical considerations in paper and corrugated, inks, and machines.

The classroom portion of the workshop will take place at the Hyatt Place in Greenville, South Carolina,, with meals and transportation to and from Clemson University included in the cost of registration. Registration is open to both FPPA members and nonmembers.
