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!

“This type of training not only allows press operators the opportunity to perform the tasks needed, but also saves their employer money on consumables. All while creating a safe learning environment, free of the potential dangers associated with inexperienced press operations.”

Keith Nagle, Fall Conference 2019 Program Chair

This new training tool will combine immersive learning and print simulation in a controlled and safe environment. Find out more about the advantages of VR training, the development and deployment plan for the new platform, and see a live, on-stage demonstration of the technology.
