WEDNESDAY,MAY5 SeSSionS SeSSionS FORUM WORKBOOK 35 Anilox Roller Volume Measurement Gauge Study Determine Repeatability and Reliability (R&R) of current anilox measurement devices. As there is no ANSI standard, deviation between instruments will be determined and potential calibration established. Dan Reilly, Flint Group Jean Jackson, Praxair Surface Technologies, Project Leader Narrow Web UV Ink Spitting Ink spitting has been a chronic problem in UV flexo printing for narrow web applications. The issue causes reduced running speeds, added clean ups, and compromises press efficiency. This project is designed to investigate the parameters that can influence the problem, and identify the root cause or causes. Sean Teufler, Harper Corporation of America, Project Leader ISO Flexographic Ink Standard ISO 12647 currently calls for process inks to be certified under ISO2846-5. This project evaluates consolidation of ISO ink targets from the flexographic standard 2846-5 to 2846-1, to verify that flexographic ink suppliers worldwide can economically provide process color flexographic inks to a common standard color under methods defined in 2846-5, as well as to study an “alternate” option for process magenta within the 2846-5 ink standard, and to verify the correlation of the substrate independent ISO 2846 ink standard to commonality of color reproduction on packaging substrates. Jay Sperry, Clemson University, Project Leader FIRST Roundtable (Open Meeting) 10:30aM – 11:30aM Come to this open forum to discuss and better understand FIRST 4.0. See why FIRST is being embraced as a means to achieve predictable consistent print results with increased productivity. Come learn and share experiences with others who have implemented FIRST and those who plan to. Everyone is welcome to attend as FIRST is a living document built by those who live flexography daily. FQC Team Meeting (Open Meeting) 10:30aM – 11:30aM The FQC Team will meet to discuss the current trends and concerns of the membership to identify and organize potential new projects. Participants are invited to provide input, volunteer resources and become involved with the technical arm of FTA. Last year’s meeting was standing-room only with 3 new projects initiated. Get involved with the FQC in this open meeting format. WEDNESDAY, MAY 5 2010Workbook_mech.indd 35 4/11/10 9:05 PM
