AICC’s new two-day course will focus on how to safely produce quality boxes at speed on < 4 color machines. Participants learn the why behind best practices and then learn by doing. They will gain experience as they explore each section of the machine with expert trainers and suppliers. By this method, participants will have a deeper understanding of the best concepts to use, by practicing them in a hands-on environment and building standard operating procedures to take back to their home plants.
