Seven courses featuring expert instruction for its 2-Piece Metal Decorating program are available for the benefit of marketers, designers, converters and production personnel.
An eLearning platform accessible via a desktop computer or mobile device, INX University is designed to serve as an educational resource for the graphic arts industry.
Dave Waller, VP of sales – North America Rigid Packaging, said the decision to offer the metal decorating courses stems from the interest generated by the highly successful INX Color Perfection program.
“As the market leader in metal decorating inks and color management technologies, we have been able to leverage our leadership in the category,” he said. “Developing these courses and sharing our knowledge with brand owners, designers and others will help with multiple cost-saving advantages that will improve the overall design-to-market process.”
The seven courses available match INX’s philosophy to share access to technical material, diagnostic information, and professional development training.
Four Color Series courses cover such topics as measurement, instrumentation, tolerance, and an explanation of why it is important to measure. Three Production Series courses include Ink 101, Deco set-up and troubleshooting.
“One of the essential things we want to accomplish with INX University is to educate the industry,” Waller said. “The majority of the instruction for the metal decorating courses is information that is not readily available. Given INX’s long history in metal decorating, we are able to provide resources and information to assist our colleagues in the industry. We recognize your time is valuable so we’ve made learning the material as flexible as possible. You can learn at your own pace either as an individual or as a group. Certificates of completion will be issued upon finishing any course.”
