Much like pit crews are an integral part of competing and winning a car race, so are the people involved in a production line when doing a printrun. One wrong move and all of the time, effort, money and materials put into that one race—that one printrun—turns into costly waste.

Watch a virtual reality press, on stage, demonstrating the optimization, fingerprinting, characterization, process control and process improvement techniques.
Meet students representing tomorrow’s industry leaders from Clemson University and Central Piedmont Community College.
See the latest innovations in label, flexible packaging, premedia, digital printing, finishing equipment and hybrid technology at the Tabletop Exhibit.

“One of the things you’ll notice if you spend time in today’s pressrooms is there’s a significant amount of avoidable downtime. There are processes that can be implemented in prepress, production, finishing, quality control and maintenance to minimize the potential for unnecessary downtime. At Fall Conference 2019, we will take you on a journey from prepress to finished product and show the proper steps to ensure you’re maximizing your profit through efficient process control.”
