PCMC open house to provide deep dive into folding carton printing trends and innovation

Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), part of BW Converting Solutions, is inviting packaging newcomers and experts alike to two free information-packed open houses at its state-of-the-art Packaging Innovation Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, 23-25 April.

The event will span three days and focus on both digital printing for flexible packaging as well as digital and flexo printing for the folding carton industry.

The inaugural ‘Power Packs Live’ event builds upon the success of PCMC’s recently launched Power Packs educational video series. PCMC’s Packaging Innovation Center serves as a resource for demos, trials and training along with research and development opportunities.

Participants interested in digital printing for folding carton printing are invited to attend the 25 April open house. All will be held from 8:00am to 3:00pm.

The Digital and Flexo Folding Carton Open House on April 25 will include a flexo supplier showcase where participants will catch up on the latest products from industry suppliers, followed by lunch and networking. Educational sessions will include Sean Smyth sharing his insight into digital trends in folding carton, along with technical and innovation experts, including Dennis Gignac from BW PaperSystems/Zerand, delving into the details of their new innovations in folding carton converting. PCMC’s Rodney Pennings will highlight the latest flexographic printing innovations.

An overview of the Fusion folding carton press will be followed by an up-close press-side demo. The Fusion press boasts energy and time-saving features like automatic drum cleaning and automatic impression setting to ensure minimal downtime. The Fusion significantly reduces energy requirements by utilizing low-power consumption components, design and operation. In addition, it offers fast changeovers and lower ink usage for competitive operating costs and a quick return on investment.

“We’re excited to share with the industry PCMC’s state-of-the-art printing technologies. During the event, we’ll have a live demo of our high-production 59 inch wide, 10+2 Color Fusion CI press as well as our short-run digital offering for the folding carton space,” said Rodney Pennings, PCMC Director of Sales – Print. “This press with its 2-color downstream outboard allows flexibility for backside print and sustainable coatings. This, coupled with engaging presentations from BW Paper Systems-Zerand will show the economic benefits to moving your folding carton production from sheet fed to web fed.”
