GRCI Workshops: Flexo Bootcamps

Flexo Bootcamp 101
June 11-12, 2012
Flexo Bootcamp 101 is a quick way to jumpstart your productivity, improve your skill level and reduce your learning curve—in only two days! This fast-paced workshop is designed to provide the essentials necessary to be productive in the flexographic industry. It is geared for those new to the industry or looking for a well-rounded introduction to flexo printing.

Over a two-day period, participants will learn both theory and modern practice of flexographic workflow and printing using a narrow-web press. Participants will build an Illustrator file, use EskoArtwork’s Suite 7 to produce carbon mask digital plates, and then print on a Mark Andy 2200 press. We will use the Cal Poly “learn by doing” model of education. Come prepared to hit the ground running! $439 for this 2-day workshop.


HD Flexo Bootcamp
June 13, 14,& 15, 2012
Today’s flexographic markets require the highest quality printing, rivaling offset and gravure. HD Flexo is Esko’s new high-resolution screening and digital platemaking solution that helps make it possible for you to achieve that level of quality.

Over a three-day period, participants will learn how to implement HD Flexo from the best in the industry by walking the process from start to finish. A simulated job — design, proofing, workflow, digital platemaking, anilox and tape selection, flexographic printing, and process control - will draw on Cal Poly’s “learn by doing” philosophy.

Join Malcolm Keif (Cal Poly), Larry Moore (Esko), and users of HD Flexo in this informative workshop. You will walk away with a full understanding of the process, how to optimize the system, proofing methods, and best practices for process control. $499 for this 3-day workshop.
