FLEXO Magazine : December 2011
Saturday, March 17–FREE Pre-conference session 1:00pm - 5:00pm FQC (Flexo Quality Consortium) Day FQC Day will consist of two concurrent sessions designed to provide the membership with a better understanding of the factors controlling the quality of the flexographic printing process. Fundamentals of Flexo Session Coordinator: Duane Woolbright, Flexographic Technical Association This pre-conference session serves as a foundational or “prerequisite” seminar to the topics discussed throughout the Forum. The main objective of this FREE seminar is to bring novices up to speed on the language of flexo, the markets, the segments, the major elements and the basic practices, with a focus on the flexo press. It will introduce attendees to the basic flexo principles, practices and procedures to help them better participate during the Forum and in FQC activities (and well beyond). Presentations will include a brief primer on flexography, press technology, graphics principles, and process components, including substrates, inks, and plates. The session will be augmented with a virtual press tour illustrating the principles involved.
