AWA Reports Agenda of Shrink Sleeve Label Event

MINNEAPOLIS, MN | AWA Alexander Watson Associates announces the agenda for the Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshops, to be held 19–20 July and 21–22 July in Minneapolis. Offered in English and, for the second workshop, additionally in simultaneous Spanish translation, the workshop is presented at two leading sleeve label industry participants’ facilities: Flint Group Narrow Web, for live demonstrations of sleeve label printing, prepress, and digital photopolymer plates; and Accraply, for presentations and live hands-on tutorials on MD shrink film and the slitting, seaming, inspection, application, and shrinking of heat shrink sleeve labels.

The workshop program will also feature presentations from leading industry technology experts including Accraply, Creative Edge Software, Flint Group Narrow Web, Hybrid Software, Klöckner Pentaplast Group, Xeikon ThermoflexX, and WS Packaging Group; a “cures and remedies” panel discussion where workshop participants can quiz experts on quality issues, and how to avoid or remedy them; and an up-to-the-minute overview of the global sleeve label market from AWA.

The program will offer numerous networking breaks and a cocktail reception at the conference hotel on the first evening. All participants will take away a printed manual for a permanent reference of the workshop content and presentations, as well as a complimentary copy of an AWA-published manual featuring a basic list of test methods for heat shrink sleeve labels, and a glossary of terms.

Workshops are said to be ideal for participants new to the technology or those who wish to extend and update their understanding of the heat shrink sleeve label format, from label printers to end-users, co-packers and applicators, and technical staff.
