Girona (Spain), 18th July 2013. - In June the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Centre organised an advanced lamination course targeting companies linked to the flexible packaging industry. The course was held from 18th to 20th June at the Comexi Group facilities in Riudellots de la Selva and the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Centre classrooms at the University of Girona’s Science and Technology Park. The demand for places on the course was so high that the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Centre decided to organise a second edition, scheduled for 16th to 18th July, in order to satisfy demand.
The advanced lamination course organised by the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Centre is designed for a maximum of 15 participants and targets lamination section heads, plant managers, experienced laminating operators or other professionals working in the flexible packaging sector interested in acquiring and extending their lamination know-how.
During the sessions, which got underway with a tour of the Comexi Group’s facilities in Girona, the focus was placed on key aspects of the lamination process such as the material characteristics, adhesives, the industrial process, solutions for possible defects and productivity efficiency and control. The practical sessions were held at the Comexi Group’s newly-opened Demo Center, more than 2,000 m2 equipped with 12 state-of-the-art conversion sector machines, including flexographic and rotogravure printers, laminators, cutters and logistics equipment.
Both the June and July editions of the course are taught in Spanish only, although the Manel Xifra Boada Technology Centre plans to hold further sessions targeting the English-speaking market in autumn 2013.
