Session 2: Empowering the Pit Crew
Looking beyond traditional training, virtual reality (VR) is gearing up to take a new role in press operator training.
Learn how VR can provide cost-effective, zero-waste and scalable training, and then watch live as an instructor teaches a new flexographer how to set up and run a VR flexo press. The traditional conference stage will be transformed into a fully functional pressroom!
