Converting School Hosts Two September Courses

FORT MILL, SC | The AIMCAL Converting School is hosting two courses in Philadelphia in September: “Web Handling and Converting” from September 16-17, and “Winding: Machines, Mechanics and Measurements” from September 18-19. Dr. David Roisum of Finishing Technologies will be the instructor for both courses.

The “Web Handling and Converting” course, offered through the Converting School of Assn. of the Industrial Metallizers, Coaters & Laminators, focuses on the essentials that are required to understand most web manufacturing, as well as converting machines such as coaters, laminators, printers, and winders.
