FLEXO Magazine : August 2014
• Past and present FTA Technical Innovation Award winners will discuss their technology and how it is being put to use • A presentation on the clever use of RFID for tracking plate inventories will keep the audience thinking • Updates from FTA regarding the upcoming new version of Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications and Tolerances (FIRST), as well as the most recent Flexo Quality Consortium (FQC) work on expanded gamut FLEXO: How can attendance at FTA’s 2014 Fall Conference assist print- ers in becoming better at what they do? FRONCZKIEWICZ & MALM: If a printer has been considering upgrading capabilities and implementing recent innovations in flexo, this is the place to come to hear real experiences of how their peers and competitors are making these things work. Where else can you get all this valuable information, at one time, at one conference, on one stage? FLEXO: As Conference Chairs, what are your personal goals and objec- tives for the event? FRONCZKIEWICZ & MALM: A huge goal of ours was to make the information presented in this conference tangible, real world and with a focus on truly being useful for printers. The term “innovation,” while exciting, can be broad and lofty. In this conference, we want to discuss the process of innovation, but then bring the term down to ground level to show how these great ideas are really impacting flexo on a day to day basis. We appreciate a good sense of humor and a little laughter, so hopeful- ly we will all have some fun to boot. If we all leave Minneapolis with some new ideas between our ears and smiles on our faces, we will consider it a success! FLEXO: How do you envision Tabletop Exhibit time as enhancing the agenda, as well as your goals and objectives? FRONCZKIEWICZ & MALM: The great thing about the Tabletops at the Fall Conference is that they intentionally align with the frequent breaks from the presentations, so we get to mingle and visit the “Conversation about the presentations grows at the exhibit and the whole day builds on itself and merges into one big experience of learning and discussion. ” AUGUST 2014 | FLEXO 25
