FLEXO Magazine : Golden Anniversary Commemorative Journal
1985 THE 19805 1985-FTA Booth (#7426) is situated close to entrance of PRINT 85-first international show managed by Graphic Arts Show Company. The exhibit promotes new educational aids developed in recent months. FTA releases 220-page Flexo Plant Survey in July. u.S. mar- ket = $28 billion to $30 billion. Employees = 150,000+. "Quality Control, as it is generally thought of, is an after-the-fact phe- nomenon. We inspect artwork after it is completed and our plates after they are made. We inspect labels after they are setup and again after they are run to make sure defective product does not leave our plant. ...Continue the pursuit of quality performance. Make no assumptions...lf something doesn't make sense, question it and keep questioning it until it does make sense. Understand your objective. Anticipate what is likely to happen downstream. Act to head off potential problems. Press operators must look for the weak spots in the run, identify the things most likely to fail, watch for them and stay ahead of them." -Alan Leeson, Future Hall of Farner, at FFTA 1986 Forum FFTA introduces a series of Technical Briefs-concise technical reports designed for people without time to sift through volumes of text. The 12 papers are drawn from past Forum presentations and range from 3-8 pages. Problems and Solutions is the focus. Also newly released is FTA's Pressman's Pocket Pal Pamphlets; plus three audio/visual pro- gram modules on "Flexo Ink Distribution Systems." FFT A sponsors Senior Managers Meeting, targeted at CEOs and their closest advisors, set for April 29 in St. Louis, MO. Interest runs high and 150 are expected, one day before kick-off of Forum 1985. Outlook, prospects and money sup- ply are on the agenda. FTA and GATF partner in production of The Flexography Primer, penned by Donna C. Mulvhill. It contains 112 pages and eight chapters: Development of Flexography, Image Preparation, Flexographic Plates, Flexographic Presses, Flexographic Substrates, Flexographic Inks, Converting/ Finishing and Flexography's Future. atalztÚJrM Flexographic Technical Association dÆSO do/ ff Ytm Ji b kn tJ OðtVe ttJ a mem/er o/de.!Tb:o Yedmëd YløtJaåttiJn ßr tJ1/t7 20 The Cryovac Food Packaging Division of Sealed Air is a worldwide leader in developing sophisticated packaging systems and materials that help make possible safe and efficient distribution of perishable food products to the supermarket, food processing, and food service industries.
