FTA Announces Session Details For 4-Day FORUM 2022 Event


Session details are now available for FTA’s FORUM 2022, a four-day technical conference themed “Corralling Solu- tions, Creating Results.” The event will be held March 13-16 at the Omni Fort Worth Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas. With nine sessions and more than 25 technical presen- tations from industry experts, FORUM 2022 will explore how the technology powering cutting-edge flexographic printing can help flexographers corral solutions to create exemplary results for clients. A staple for more than six de- cades, FORUM provides attendees with a chance to hone skills and gain knowledge from peers who aim to tackle challenges so they can meet their customers’ needs. “Everyone is looking for better, more efficient ways to work. Seeing innovative ways to improve efficiency and print quality during FORUM 2022 will inspire more of the same,” said FORUM 2022 Co-Chair Laura Wright of CSW Inc. “Many flexographers have been busy just getting the work out the last few years, but it’s important to take time to improve processes and standards. This year’s ses- sions will present lots of new and accessible ways to help achieve this.” The nine sessions are: • Print Quality eXchange and the Print Score Card: Up- dates on PQX and how it is being adapted into today’s print score card. • The Great Anilox Roll Debate 2022: Leading anilox roll- er manufacturers debate different types of engravings. • Welcome to Our Pressroom: Integrating technology to improve common challenges in the pressroom. • How Do I Fix This?: Industry experts address real-world production issues and explain the cause, effect and remedy. • Taking Your Flexography Further: Opportunities to ex- pand flexographic business offerings into other market segments. • CxF in Action: Identifying how CxF files are used throughout the entire flexographic workflow. • FQC: Research in Motion - Pioneering Solutions: Re- sults of the latest FQC projects and scholarship-recipi- ent student research reports. • It’s Always the Ink’s Fault: Technical experts explain and correct pressroom issues often blamed on ink. • Improving Print Quality Through Optimization: Defining the optimization process and show how tape, anilox roller and plate combinations improve print quality.
