Baltimore, MD—April 30, 2014—Forum's final day will focus on process control and printing to the numbers as encapsulated in FIRST (Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances). Also highlighted:
♦ Building better boxes - design to print
♦ Using special effects on tags and labels
♦ Future trends and possibilities in flexible packaging
At Tuesday's FQC In Action session, standards were briefed and current research findings were presented from 2013 Rossini Scholarship winners Natalee Consulo and Lena Haidar. The call to "print to the numbers" echoed throughout the room.
The same concept was embraced in the Mythbusters session, where flexo's perceived shortcomings were dismissed. The capacity crowd welcomed the change in format to short snippets, some live and some video taped ahead of time.
