Seats are still available for NPIRI's Summer Course
, a chance to take a comprehensive "foundation" course that starts with the fundamentals and moves to more advanced topics.
Attendees will get a solid understanding of printing ink formulation, performance and testing - whether they're technical (formulators, in-plants, chemists,) or non-technical (sales, support personnel, anyone new to the industry) staff - and they'll get hands-on press experience and learn new ways to maximize productivity while improving skills.
Each of the NPIRI Summer Course instructors has been carefully chosen not only for their technical expertise, but also for their interest in, and ability to communicate, complex information in a classroom setting.
Despite being an annual course, the 2019 edition is not the same as last year.
Each instructive session has been reviewed, refined and improved to ensure that the most current and up-to-date information is provided.
Instructors include printing ink experts from: Allnex, BASF, Cabot Corporation, Clemson University, IGT Testing Systems, INX, Joules Angstrom U.V. Printing Inks, Kershaw Instrumentation, Kustom Group, NAPIM, Printers' Service, Sun Chemical, and Verso Paper.
