SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S.A.‎ – From April 29-30, 2014, the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) will host its highly acclaimed Folding Carton Boot Camp workshop at PPC’s headquarters in Springfield, Massachusetts‎.

The Folding Carton Boot Camp is perfect for anyone new to cartons – even if not new to the industry, and non-plant personnel with limited experience outside a single plant operation. The course is intended to provide its graduates with a better understanding of the products and services their companies offer.

The two-day training follows the entire folding carton production process. First, instructors explain how fibre is recovered and paper is made. Then, industry experts describe the uses of various inks and coatings as well as the processes involved in prepress, including CAD, layout, and graphics. Next there is an overview of tooling, embossing, foil stamping, stripping, finishing, gluing, and windowing procedures. The curriculum concludes with an assessment of automated packaging equipment. At the close of the seminar, participants are awarded certificates of achievement.

Following the most recent Boot Camp, graduate Zach Codo from Accord Carton remarked, “The Boot Camp was excellent and I left with a great amount of valuable information. I especially enjoyed learning about unfamiliar manufacturing processes; it was an incredibly helpful learning experience.”

The Folding Carton Boot Camp is open to PPC members, brand-owners, and non-members. To register or for more information, visit:
