OMET and the Sonoco Institute partner for a FREE open house in 2019

Gather with industry print suppliers on Feb. 6-7 to explore new technologies for 2019

OMET Americas is hosting its first open house at Clemson University’s Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics on February 6- 7. The free event is designed for those in the flexographic printing industry to connect with print suppliers, exploring their latest technologies and industry advancements.

The two-day event will consist of speaker presentations, OMET press demos, networking opportunities and free food. Vendors like Phoseon, Siegwerk, Harper, Nazdar, Techkon, DuPont and Eaglewood will be onsite to demonstrate their latest technologies. Durst will also be present to facilitate discussions around digital inkjet technology, capabilities and justification.

OMET and the Sonoco Institute have partnered over the years in many ways to provide advanced printing capabilities to Clemson students and the industry. OMET’s Varyflex 530 narrow-web press provides an opportunity for students and partners to experience hands-on learning in the basics of press operation, color management, process control and more. The press is placed in the Institute’s Advanced Print Lab which also houses ink and platemaking capabilities.

The Sonoco Institute is also one of OMET’s designated Future of Flexo schools, receiving additional support from OMET to ensure that students gain exposure to the modern technologies and skills employees are using in the flexographic field.
