Holmesglen hosting AIP members
Tour of Digital Print Centre includes hardware, software demonstrations

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is offering a tour of the Holmesglen Institute’s (Holmesglen) new Digital Print Centre, taking place on September 5.

Free for members with a $22 fee for non-members, the tour will be lead by Andrew Readman, who is an AIP lecturer in the Master of Food and Packaging Innovation course.

Those attending will see demonstrations of the Sinapse computer simulations presses, including sheet fed, heatset web, coldset web in lithography, and inline, central impression, and corrugated board in flexography.

The tour will also include live prints to Holmesglen’s Konica Minolta digital presses, across EFI rips, also including HP wide-format inkjet presses.

Promoting the Institute as a way of upskilling packaging and print credentials, the tour will also include a demonstration of Holmesglen’s online learning portal, and the courses offered by the Tafe.

A spokesperson from the AIP says, “Printing is a global industry using the most advanced digital technologies alongside traditional print processes. Holmesglen courses provide the skills to work in this highly competitive industry. From conventional forms to ink-jet technologies, large format printing, digital printing and packaging applications and digital label printing, the printed form remains highly relevant in a digital world."

The tour is set for a 10:00 start, with the site to take one and a half hours. Those attending must wear flat-soled enclosed shoes.
