Charlotte, NC – Graphics experts from global anilox supplier Harper Corporation will attend the FTA INFO*FLEX 2011 in Indianapolis. On both May 2 and 3, Harper sales and technical representatives will be at Booth No. 805/807 to answer visitors' anilox and printing questions.
Sponsored by the Flexographic Technical Association, INFO*FLEX has become a respected networking event and product showcase. The Annual Forum, with a theme "Setting the Pace for Flexo Packaging Excellence" runs concurrently in the Indiana capital.
HarperScientific, the firm's pressroom support supplier, will display the latest ink proofing model – the Harper motorized Phantom QD. In addition to constant loading pressure, this unit features variable speed: from 15 to 450 inches per minute.
The patent pending Phantom QD proofing system has generated much interest in its initial market release. Available options include a flexo or gravure bladed proofer, imaged transfer rolls, air and electric drive, unwind stand, glass drawdown surface and compatibility with XDI engravings. Phantom QD proofers are fully compatible with all HarperScientific proofer rolls.
Also set for display: the expanded laser-executed family of engravings developed by Harper for flexo and gravure use. In all, more than 200 exhibitors have signed up for the INFO*FLEX 2011.
The Annual Forum is expecting a large and varied audience comprised of executives/CEOs, package buyers, CPCs, purchasing and marketing managers, production staffers, technical experts and educators.
Scheduled topics for discussion at the forum include sustainability, emerging flexo trends, lean thinking applications, flexo quality, inks and substrates and the agency's FIRST operator certification programs.
