Monday is In-plant Day! Don’t Miss Out
If you haven’t done so yet, registering for Monday’s In-plant Forum may be the smartest thing you do all week. Day six of the PRINTING United Digital Experience will be devoted entirely to in-plants and will feature seven different in-plant managers speaking on a variety of topics.
Covering topics from rebuilding operations after COVID-19 and how to create a five-year strategic plan, to workflow, wide-format and production inkjet printing, Monday’s In-plant Forum is expected to draw a worldwide audience.
In the opening keynote, Consultant Howie Fenton will discuss how in-plants can recover lost revenue, rebuild their operations, accelerate their adoption of digital technologies, and rethink their operations to come out stronger once the pandemic has ended.
In a panel discussion about wide-format printing, in-plant managers from the University of Illinois and Iowa State University will show examples of innovative wide-format jobs their in-plants have printed and describe how these jobs were produced, which equipment and substrates were used, and challenges they faced installing the graphics.
This will be followed by an interview with Chuck Werninger, of Houston Independent School District, about how his in-plant has increased its wide-format graphics production with its new Canon Colorado printer to meet the school district’s needs for social distancing graphics and other signage.
A session on workflow efficiency will feature Mike Griswold of Tacoma Public Schools Printing and Graphics who will relate how implementing Web-to-print and workflow automation software has driven volume to his print center, saved thousands of dollars for the school district and offered flexibility as needs change — as they have to a great extent during the coronavirus pandemic.
Then Greg Cholmondeley, president of PRINTelligence Consulting, will review the steps in-plants should take to create a five-year strategic plan and highlight the 10 key elements to include.
Finally, the last session brings together three in-plants that use production inkjet presses. They will discuss the challenges they faced when replacing multiple devices with an inkjet press, the types of work they are successfully printing with inkjet, quality considerations, volume requirements, and much more.
In between the sessions, new products will be demonstrated from FujiFilm, C.P. Bourg, Roland, Canon, and more. Don’t miss out. Register today and tune in Monday at 10:00 EST.
