Harper Anticipates WalkingSeminar™ Anniversary
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Global anilox and coating roll supplier Harper Corporation of America announced that next year it will celebrate two decades of providing the Harper WalkingSeminar™. Since 1990, thousands of converters, co-suppliers, original equipment manufacturers, educators, students, members of the media, and supplier partners from around the globe have participated in WalkingSeminars at Harper’s Advanced Surface Technologies Centers.
A WalkingSeminar is a complimentary, educational session at one of Harper Corporation’s anilox and coating roll laser-engraving facilities. Participants tour the plant and talk with production operators about their particular functions and contributions to their finished product, the anilox roll. The tour is followed by a customized technical session on anilox and flexo technology where visitors can explore solutions to specific problems. Attendees can see the latest laser-engraving technology with flexo professionals. The mission of Harper’s WalkingSeminars is to help attendees develop a clearer understanding of the small details that can make a big difference in the flexo process.
“For nearly 20 years, the WalkingSeminar has been an intrinsic element of Harper Corporation’s endeavors to further flexo education globally,” said Margie Kluttz, president of Harper Corporation. “It provides the opportunity to more easily absorb many of the technical aspects of flexography that aren’t easily learned in a classroom, lab, or on the job. We’re honored that thousands of people have found the program helpful and entrusted us with their time.”
One company or student group is scheduled at a time, and WalkingSeminar instructors each work with a maximum of six persons. Converters are welcome to bring other suppliers, such as representatives from manufacturers of inks, substrates, plates, etc. There may be as many as five groups from the same organization involved simultaneously, for a maximum of 30 total participants.
