This premiere workshop is based on the movement to digital printing taking place in paper packaging and the need for a well thought out plan for meeting customer expectations. Learn from knowledgeable developers and users in digital print for corrugated. This course will be held at Sun Automation where training will take place in a classroom with hands-on access to state of the art digital printers.

This course is intended for companies who are starting to get into digital or those who are thinking about it. The course will touch all the concerns and issues with direct digital print on corrugated. The course will be presented in an open format, which will include time for detail questions and answers on specific topics.

Course Topics:  
  • Understand what's possible in digital printing and better understand customer needs and expectations. You’ll review the many digital printer types to determine what is best for your market.
  • Workflow concept activities, including file generation from your customer or yourself, color management to assure correct color matching to the paper used and the internal software for the print engine to place the ink on the paper. You will learn about different drop sizes and their effect on the printed file.
  • Review the business model of digital including disruption and changes to your current production processes, hardware and support personnel and cost differences of the digitally printed sheet versus flexo or litho printing. The course will review the Total Cost of Ownership model, including decisions on print head life, staffing, ink costs and capital expenditure.

By the end of the seminar, you will leave with the knowledge you need to go further in digital printing and get the results you are looking for when you return home. You'll have a vastly expanded set of possibilities for getting started in digital and building a digital platform for your customers at the level and pace that works for your company.
