Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies: The Annual Update

Monday, May 09, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

AWA Alexander Watson Associates’ 2016 portfolio of professional events related to sleeve labeling technologies continues with their popular interactive Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshops, on 19-20 July and 21-22 July, in Plymouth (Minneapolis), Minnesota.  Offered in English and, for the second workshop, additionally in simultaneous Spanish translation, the workshop agenda is presented at two leading sleeve label industry participants’ facilities – Flint Group Narrow Web, for live demonstrations of sleeve label printing, pre-press, and digital photopolymer plates; and Accraply Inc, for presentations and live hands-on tutorials on MD shrink film and the slitting, seaming, inspection, application, and shrinking of heat shrink sleeve labels.    

The workshop program also features presentations from leading industry technology experts; a ‘cures and remedies’ panel discussion where workshop participants can quiz experts on quality issues, and how to avoid or remedy them; and an up-to-the-minute overview of the global sleeve label market from AWA Alexander Watson Associates. 

Full supporting literature 

Networking opportunities during workshop breaks, and at the cocktail reception at the conference hotel on the first evening, complete the program; and all participants will take away a printed manual covering the workshop content and presentations, providing a permanent reference,  and a complimentary copy of an AWA published manual featuring a basic list of test methods for heat shrink sleeve labels, and a glossary of terms. 

Early booking recommended 

The workshops are ideal for participants new to the technology, or wishing to extend and update their understanding of the heat shrink sleeve label format, from label printers to end users, co-packers and applicators, and technical staff.   They complement the industry’s ‘must attend’ event, the AWA International Sleeve Label Conference & Exhibition held earlier this year in Denver, Colorado. 

Supported by Accraply Inc, Flint Group Narrow Web, Hybrid Software, Klöckner Pentaplast Group, and ThermoflexX, the Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshops are open now for registrations – and intending participants should book early, as spaces are limited. The program brochures can be viewed on the AWA website, www.awa-bv.com, where it is also possible to book online.
