Accraply, Flint to cohost heat shrink sleeve workshop

Accraply will present live equipment demonstrations during the forthcoming AWA Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshop

Accraply and Flint Group are to cohost the forthcoming AWA Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshop, to be held May 23-24.

Organized in partnership with AWA Alexander Watson Associates, the workshop, which includes an optional Spanish translation, serves as an interactive guide to the technologies and processes involved in the production and application of shrink sleeve labels. Day one of the event is hosted by Flint Group Narrow Web at its Rogers, Minnesota, facility, and Accraply hosts the second day in Plymouth, with live equipment demonstrations from the division of Barry-Wehmiller.

By incorporating classroom presentations with onsite demonstrations, the workshop offers an opportunity for those who seek to gain a sound education in heat shrink sleeve technology. The event also includes a ‘cures and remedies’ panel discussion between attendees and industry specialists. In addition to Accraply and Flint Group Narrow Web, the workshop is supported by Klöckner Pentaplast, Creative Edge Software, Phenix Label Company and CSW.

‘The popularity of this seminar and the superb partnership with Flint Group Narrow Web and Accraply have worked so well that we return to Minnesota for a fifth consecutive annual event,’ remarked AWA Alexander Watson Associates president and CEO Corey Reardon. ‘The participant feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and this workshop is consistently one of the highest rated events we hold all year. This is due, in no small part, to the significant support and participation from leading international companies in this growing technology arena.’
