Power Printers Training Sessions to be Offered by manroland
WESTMONT, IL--10/02/08--The Power Printers training program at manroland has attracted much attention in recent years. Pressroom personnel and management throughout North America were impressed by what they learned and have shared that knowledge with others in their organizations. With several classes remaining on the schedule in 2008, more than 2,500 people will have earned Power Printers certification in the last five years.
"In today's world, speed to the market is everything," says Jim Oring, Vice President of Operations for Schawk Inc. in Los Angeles. "The Power Printers program provides a clear overview of important issues from prepress to postpress. It was a pretty impressive program where we learned a lot about their automation capabilities, and we have since sent other people from the company for training."
The training program, which will be a major component at Graph Expo (booth #1246) later this month, was established by manroland to provide knowledge to customers and support the equipment investment made by the printer. Typically a five-day program with 35 hours of classroom and hands-on training, Power Printers gives pressmen the chance to see and learn in a training environment - without deadline pressure - how the press performs. Often the training is done at manroland's Print Technology Center in Westmont near Chicago, but additional training also can be handled on-site at the printer's facility.
Approximately 20 weekly classes will be held in 2008. These include specific press courses, such as the September sessions held for the ROLAND 706LV with foiler and ROLAND 906LV, as well as mechanical/maintenance and electrical programs. With the interest level growing, the quest for knowledge continuing, and the North American debut of the PRINTVALUE program taking place at Graph Expo '08 later this month, manroland may expand the training schedule in 2009.
