May 22, 2003 -- A continent-wide seminar series that explores the productivity benefits provided by Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) has scheduled new events at three of the industry’s foremost research and educational facilities this spring. - The World Headquarters of Flint Ink in Ann Arbor, Michigan will be the site of the seminar on June 17. The facility also houses Flint Ink's state-of-the-art Research Center. - The Graphic Arts Technical Foundation’s headquarters outside of Pittsburgh will be visited on June 18. - The Rochester Institute of Technology will be the venue for a June 19 event on the school’s campus in Rochester, New York. The free seminar, titled “CIM in Print: It’s Here. It’s Working. It’s Ready for You,” is being conducted by the CIP4 organization, Creo, Printcafe and MAN Roland. Printers who attend the half-day event will discover how CIM can put a competitive edge on their workflows and help them win new business. For more information about and instant registration to the complimentary session, they should visit www.ciminprint.com. “Feedback from the events we conducted in the U.S. and in Canada has been overwhelming,” says Christian Cerfontaine, Director of Marketing for MAN Roland Inc. “Participants can’t believe what CIM can do today. They can’t imagine it — until we show them. We have products that really make the promises of CIM a productive reality right now. Once printers learn that, they can't imagine going ahead without it.”
