Cost-Competitive Digital Quality: Learn How at FREE Flexo Forum

DES PLAINES, IL, USA—Flexo professionals, if you want to learn how to get digital quality at conventional prices, the upcoming free "New Technology for Flexography" conference is something you'll want to check out.

Presented in combination by All Printing Resources, Artwork Systems, BASF, GRIPdigital, inc., OLEC, and Polaroid Graphics Imaging, the one-day conference is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26, 2002, at the Double Tree Suites Hotel, Des Plaines, IL. In addition, says APR, the session also will be offered in Dallas, TX, on June 13, 2002.

The reason for the conference, says APR: "It seems today everyone is pushing us to convert to a complete 'digital workflow,' specifically digitally exposed plates. And with so many different sources of information about digital workflows and computer-to-plate technology it's become difficult to determine if the improved quality is worth the price. Though we are not here to debate the superior quality of digitally exposed plates, we do want to expose you to some alternatives," the service supplier says.
