Online training series: Packaging printing in February 2021

In the practice-oriented online training series on packaging printing, the participants gain a deep insight into the workflows, technologies and potential of modern packaging printing. In gravure printing in particular, requirements are increasing due to shorter jobs and growing cost pressure. At the same time, gravure packaging printing is more modern and better than ever before.

The W&H Academy online training series provides leading know-how, helps to identify optimization potential and to analyze and avoid quality problems. In six online training courses, we provide in-depth knowledge of modern packaging printing. We will give an overview of the various printing processes and show which products the technologies can be used for. We focus in particular on the gravure printing process and impart the necessary know-how for process optimization and standardization in order to meet the requirements of international markets with regard to quality and efficiency.

To ensure that the technical content is presented in a practice-oriented manner the presentations in the online training courses are regularly supplemented by topic-based video clips from the modern W&H Technology Center.
