With the recent operational merger of the Gravure Assn. of the Americas into the Assn. of International Metallizers, Coaters & Laminators, the new Gravure AIMCAL Alliance (GAA) task force will present three technical tracks at the upcoming AIMCAL R2R USA Conference 2021. Set for Oct. 17-21 at the Orange County Convention Ctr. in Orlando, FL, the five-day program offers more than 100 technical presentations, keynotes, Fundamentals Seminars, short courses, and several networking opportunities – all co-located with the ICEC USA 2021 trade show.

GAA Gravure Forum 2021 tracks will be held on the mornings of Oct. 19-21. Eighteen presentations will cover topics ranging from new gravure technologies and cylinder processing to water-based gravure and printing & coating process training. Three special talks will be offered by packaging and product brand owners from Liggett Group, Formica and Haney Packaging. The afternoons are then free for conference attendees to visit the ICEC USA show floor.

In addition, Gravure Printing & Coating Fundamentals Day on Oct. 18 will include presentations on markets; pressroom perspective of gravure inks; a review of print station components; cylinder basics; doctor blades & holders; ink formulation and color terminology; press registration and drying; film substrates; and ESA & web static control.
