USA • Alexander Watson Associates’ 2016 portfolio of professional events related to sleeve labeling technologies continues with their interactive introduction to heat shrink sleeve label technologies workshops, on 19-20 July and 21-22 July, in Plymouth, Minnesota. Offered in English and, for the second workshop, additionally in simultaneous Spanish translation, the workshop agenda is presented at two sleeve label industry participants’ facilities – Flint Group Narrow Web, for live demonstrations of sleeve label printing, pre-press, and digital photopolymer plates; and Accraply Inc, for presentations and live hands-on tutorials on MD shrink film and the slitting, seaming, inspection, application, and shrinking of heat shrink sleeve labels.

The workshop program also features presentations from 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.  Networking opportunities during workshop breaks, and at the cocktail reception at the conference hotel 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 an AWA published manual featuring a basic list of test methods for heat shrink sleeve labels, and a glossary of terms.

Supported by Accraply Inc, Flint Group Narrow Web, Hybrid Software, Klöckner Pentaplast Group, and ThermoflexX, the introduction to heat shrink sleeve label technologies workshops are open now for registrations. The program brochures can be viewed on, where it is also possible to book online.
