From Pellets to Packaging, Technical Training Available Next Month

Next month, TAPPI will be hosting a unique flexible packaging training opportunity covering the entire process from pellets through packaging. Last taught back in 2001 and revamped to meet today’s specific growing technological needs, the Blown and Cast Film Extrusion Course will be presented by a distinguished panel of over 15 industry experts who will share their experience, safety concerns, troubleshooting tips, and updated equipment technologies.

Revamped to meet today’s specific growing technological needs, the course is an introductory-to-intermediate level course providing information on basic resin and equipment technology (extruders and dies) that have applications in both blown and cast film applications, including detailed instruction about equipment and processes. Take a look at the jam-packed, comprehensive course schedule.  

Attendees will learn to:

• Understand properties and processing issues of various film resins
• Identify capabilities, specifications, and limitations of various film extrusion & winding equipment components
• Think of the equipment and resin requirements for differing co-extrusion applications
• Consider how to approach processing problems and gel issues during extrusion
• Recognize film surface treatment options available to converters and when to apply them
