"The NPIRI Summer Course is an exceptionally unique educational opportunity which appeals to both experienced ink technicians and those new to the field. The scope and depth of the course is unmatched by any other course or seminar. This is the course to learn about printing ink." George Fuchs, Director - Environmental Affairs and Technology for NAPIM.
"The NAPIM Summer Course was a great learning experience for me; I enjoyed learning about the different processes for milling pigments into pastes, this is beneficial to my job because of the constant ink development that I am responsible for. Learning about the different tools for measuring ink viscosities is also very significant for my personal growth. Fully understanding these tools has helped me improve on creating ink for various applications from stamp pads to inkjet printers." Benjamin Niederhauser, Research & Development Pilot Lab Technician for iimak
2017 NPIRI Summer Course Preview
One of the joint efforts presented by ink companies and Technical Associate Members (TAMs) through NPIRI is the Printing Ink Technology Course. The 2017 course will move to the Sonoco Institute at Clemson University, Clemson, SC. The Sonoco Institute will provide a “state of the art” venue featuring excellent instructional resources in flexographic, lithographic and gravure printing. The move to the Sonoco Institute has also allowed NPIRI to expand its course coverage to include sessions on digital printing and electronic ink development.
Regulatory issues affecting printing ink in both the manufacturing and printing environments are critically important to understand. This year’s course features a session on the ever-evolving national and international rules affecting the graphic arts industry. It is intended to provide a platform that encourages a common understanding of fundamentals, and from that, a more effective working relationship with your suppliers and customers. Whether it is in the lab, the plant or the printer’s press room, maximizing productivity by improving employee technical skills is what these courses are all about.
