Zienkiewicz Lecture Theatre - Swansea University
The Ecoflexobag project is a European Union Life + funded project aimed at reducing the environmental impact of carrier bags. This includes a lifecycle approach to design and the reduction of solvent use during manufacture leading to the production of a free online tool for designers and printers to ensure they are using the most up to date techniques. This workshop focusses on best practises for printing using the flexographic process and would be applicable to all flexo printers. Topics covered include European guidelines for solvent emissions applicable to printers, techniques for solvent reduction, particularly the use of water-based inks and printing best practise. The workshop concludes with an introduction to the on-line tool that provides a step by step guide for best practise implementation that is tailored for your company's needs.
This free event will be held in the Zienkiewicz lecture theatre, Talbot Building, College of Engineering, Swansea on Thursday 12th March 2015. Please register above if you wish to attend.
