AWA Alexander Watson Associates’ 2015 portfolio of professional events related to sleeve labeling technologies continues with their popular interactive Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshops, on 21-22 July and 23-24 July, in Plymouth (Minneapolis), Minnesota.

On site at key industry technology facilities

Offered in English and, for the second workshop, additionally in simultaneous Spanish translation, the events’ two-day programs take place at two leading sleeve industry participants’ facilities – Flint Group Narrow Web, for live demonstrations of sleeve label printing; and Accraply Inc, for live hand-on tutorials on the slitting, seaming, inspection, application, and shrink 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.

Networking opportunities during workshop breaks, and at the cocktail reception 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 the AWA Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technical Manual and Test Methods.
