Session C002: Package Design is Not Tooling Design: Design Considerations for Manufacturing
Andy Caligiuri, Arden Software North America
Why is it best to review carton design and layout with a tooling manufacturer before getting customer approval? Understand what can go right and what can go wrong in the manufacturing of tooling as it relates to success on a diecutter. Learn what to consider before submitting your final design to the customer. Carton design and layout have a huge impact on the ability to make tooling that allows the diecutter to be successful. See examples of designs/layouts and the effects they have on tooling as it relates to the converting process.

Session C015: 100% Performance in Stripping with Latest Technologies
Joachim Jakob, Boxplan; James Bannister, Bobst North America Inc.
Learn how to achieve maximum functionality and performance in the manufacturing of stripping forms and in the production of diecutters. Learn how practical experience from diecutters can positively influence the production of the stripping dies. Find out which modern solutions in the stripping forms help so that all waste can be effectively stripped in every diecutting production. The result should be the production of suitable “ready-for-run” tools that make subsequent, time-consuming modifications to the diecutters superfluous.

Session C018: Common Sense Solutions for Blanking Issues
Rick Harbaugh, Michigan Lasercut
The goal of this seminar is to present comprehensive solutions for the most common issues facing our industry in regard to blanking jobs. The seminar will include such topics as layout parameters, job preparation, lower tooling costs, tooling specification and blanking concept and theory.
Session T021: New Technologies and Tips for Quick Changeover from One Carton Job to the Next
Richard McDonald & Jeff Wilcox, PPC Technologies & Solutions LLC (PPCTS)
Machinery: Smartfold 1100SL ULTRA XL Folder Gluer
With run sizes getting smaller, it is important to be able to move on to the next job as quickly as possible. With the multitude of stations and set-ups involved, folder/gluer efficiency is a must. This program will take attendees through the process of going from one job to next and include recommended procedures and new technologies available for quick changeovers and makereadies.
Session T022: How to Improve Your Production Up-Time and Safety by Using Technology
Howard Mead, CCM Die Supply
Machinery: Perivo’s Three Level Chase Loader and Quicklock System
Our industry seems to be driven by developments within print. Diecutting still is an art form where people are the key ingredient for success. We need to ensure working practices and technology inspire future generations.
Session T030: Inspection, Detection, and Rejection – New Advances in Quality Control for Your Folder/Gluer
Bernie Czerwinski, American International Machinery: Mauro Consalvi, EyeC; Chris Raney, Baumer hhs
Machinery: Signature “Sig-Check” Compact Folder Gluer with New EyeC ProofRunner Inspection System & hhs Xtend Gluing and Quality Control
Today, it is more important than ever to maximize yields to save costs and decrease waste. Folding/gluing is the final stage of production, so it is vital to have a reliable inspection system in place. This presentation will cover how a print and die-cut inspection system can work in conjunction with the folder/gluer and help provide a quality carton with the utmost consistency. Watch this system live on the folder/gluer and see a demonstration of how it detects even the slightest flaws in the print, die-cut, or gluing.
