Going to a college with technological support from a giant backer has obvious advantages. Students working in the Clemson University Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics have now the privilege of some technologies that many institutes don't have. They are able to now output prototypes faster and on a wider range of materials than in the past thanks to a present from Fujifilm. Prototypes include the Acuity Select 26 digital UV flatbed press and also the Illumina LED Retrofit System plus a three-year commitment including training and maintenance support.
Students enrolled in the packaging design and graphics programs at Clemson are developing technical and creative abilities that will permit these to achieve success professionals in this dynamic and ever-evolving industry.
As digital printing and flexography still evolve in the packaging industry, these donated innovative solutions will no doubt enrich the packaging design and graphics programs at Clemson University.
The Acuity Select 26 built on all of the the best-selling globally successful and popular Acuity platform. These robust solutions are versatile in printing high-quality graphics on rigid, flexible and even roll media which supplies new and extra opportunities to expand print capabilities. The Illumina COLDCURE LED Retrofit System recently installed on the present flexographic press residing using the graphic communications department. The system delivers curing via patented LED-UV technology, and its unique design produces minimal heat, as well as heat dissipation can also be highly effective.
Through this newly installed digital printer and LED curing system students can print their class projects and running trials to construct data points around these technologies.
Haley Appleby, a faculty member whose students will benefit in the Acuity Select 26 said, \”Having use of this equipment at the Sonoco Institute is advancing our prototyping capabilities for education, research and real-world application.\” \”Students within my courses are being trained on how to operate the Acuity causing them to be even more equipped to go in the packaging industry after graduation.\”
