The Label Manufacturers Association of India that is holding its first ever full fledged LMAI conference “Innovations in Print“ for its members is being flagged off this afternoon at Hotel Park Hyatt in Goa. The conference is all set to bring in the best minds in the country to discuss their expertise in providing the right solution for flexography as well as provide their in-depth insights and perspective on the future developments in the industry.

The high-level LMAI conference will take off post lunch today with the lighting of the traditional lamp and a welcome note by Vivek Kapoor, President – LMAI who will welcome all the delegates to the conference. This will be followed by an Indian success story by Ajay Mehta of SMI Coated Products. The conference agenda has been designed in such a way that everything from pre-press to press to post press including consumables is covered.

The last presentation of the day will be given by Boon Chai Tan of DuPont Packaging Graphics. Boon Chai will be discussing on the “New techniques in plate making technologies and HD Flexo” and how DuPont is working closely with EskoArtwork to optimize the performance and benefits of HD Flexo with digital DuPont Cyrel to give unsurpassed sharpness and detail, Fine highlights and vignettes and Enhanced solid ink density. With HD Flexo, the flexo converter will notice many significant advantages; especially the sharp detail in plates and high quality text and line art.
