Harper Reports a Successful Road Show


CHARLOTTE, NC—On August 1, Harper Corp. of America and a group of suppliers updated, informed and entertained an audience of 90 flexo industry professionals with a full day of continuing flexo education at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, N.C., during the final stop on this year’s Harper Flexographic Solutions Tour.

Attendees aren’t the only ones who learn at the road shows. Dave Watson of Harper GraphicSolutions commented, “I learned so much new information about films from Jose’s (Alfaro) presentation. It was the first time Mitsubishi presented at a show this year. We learn a lot from each other.”

The day’s presentations included:

  • Pre-Press Practices that Control Color Management
  • Analog vs. Digital Plate Operational Differences
  • How Anilox Rolls Affect Print, and What is Available For Combo Printing Jobs and White Ink Applications
  • Ink Handling - What Should Be Monitored And Controlled
  • Anilox Scoring: What Affects It And How To Prevent It
  • What A Printer Needs To Know About Film Substrates
  • Care & Maintenance of Anilox Rolls
“Offering two presentations in the same state really gave us a pleasant surprise,” said Tony Donato of HarperScientific. “Initially, we had some concern that such close proximity might mean low attendance at the second presentation. But in fact, the opposite happened: Companies came to Charlotte from markets like Atlanta, and were so happy with the conference, they sent several more people up for the Greensboro show!”
