MINNEAPOLIS — Oct. 31, 2018 — Accraply, a Barry-Wehmiller packaging company, will host live equipment demonstrations at its Minneapolis facility during the AWA Introduction to Heat Shrink Sleeve Label Technologies Workshop, in partnership with AWA Alexander Watson Associates. Held November 13 and 14, 2018, this workshop will provide an interactive guide to the technologies and processes involved in the production and application of shrink sleeve labels. The first day of the event is hosted by Flint Group Narrow Web at its Rogers, Minnesota, facility, and Accraply hosts the second day in Minneapolis.

Through the incorporation of classroom presentations with onsite demonstrations, this workshop offers attendees a sound education in heat shrink sleeve technology. Highlights include peer networking and a “Cures and Remedies” panel discussion between workshop participants and industry specialists. In addition to Accraply, the workshop is supported by Flint Group Narrow Web, Bonset America Corporation, Creative Edge Software and CGS.

“AWA events traditionally rotate locations from year to year, however, the popularity of this seminar and the superb partnership with Flint Group Narrow Web and Accraply has worked so well that we return to Minnesota for a sixth consecutive annual event,” remarked AWA Alexander Watson Associates President and CEO Corey Reardon. “The participant feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and this workshop is consistently one of the highest rated events we hold all year. This is due, in no small part, to the significant support and participation from leading international companies in this growing technology arena.”
