Improving Color Consistency through Anilox Management: Color management can be maximized with the proper management of your anilox inventory. This is especially important with increased demands for tighter color tolerances and the faster production speeds of today's presses. Speaker: Alexander James, Harper Graphic Solutions. Held Monday, Nov. 1, 9—9:50 A.M., Rm. 503-A.

• The Flexo Dream: How Direct Engraving has change over the year and what advantages it has today in Flexography. To do everything that CTP can do and control the 3rd dimension HEIGHT… is truly a Dream For Flexo. Speaker: Paul Zeinert, Anderson & Vreeland. Held Monday, Nov. 1, 10—10:50 A.M., Rm. 503-A.
• Catching the Consumer First: FIRST 4.0 (Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances) is a set of specifications, not standards. When followed, these specifications facilitate producing a predictable, consistent result. FIRST seeks to understand customers’ graphic requirements for reproduction and translate those aesthetic requirements into specifications for each phase of the flexographic printing process including: customers, designers, prepress providers, raw material & equipment suppliers, and printers. Speaker: Joe Tuccitti, FTA. Held Tuesday, Nov. 2, 9—9:50 A.M., Rm. 505-B.
• Conquering the Resolution Revolution: HD Flexo is a combination of hardware and software innovations. The imaging hardware is enhanced with a much finer writing beam, reaching a fully addressable resolution of 4000dpi without lowering CTP throughput. Using more pixels in the screening dots (especially in the highlight area where the dots are smaller) means they are formed more accurately and with a strong, round shape. This presentation will cover the ins and out of HD Flexo while providing the attendees with a look at flexo print quality like they have never seen before! Speaker: Larry Moore, EskoArtwork. Held Tuesday, Nov. 2, 10—10:50 A.M., Rm. 505-B.
