PPC (Paperboard Packaging Council) will be hosting 3 rigid box operator training sessions for 2018.
Each multi-day workshop will help students of various experience levels operate and maintain Emmeci rigid box-making equipment more effectively, thoroughly, and efficiently.
They're holding the sessions jointly with AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, and they’ll be taught by Emmeci trainers.
There will be a glue session at each course taught by a representative from LD Davis, and the Operator Training session in Rhode Island will include a session on board, taught by Newman paperboard.
The sessions are as follows:
Advanced Troubleshooting & Maintenance
Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, 2018, Advance Paper Box, Los Angeles, CA
Scheduled for the only time of the year when manufacturers can spare their most experienced operators, the advanced course is designed for experts who want to perfect their craft. The session will address equipment troubleshooting at the highest level. It will also give students the opportunity to break down and rebuild machines, diagnose problems based on samples, and engage with experienced trainers.
Feb. 27 – March 1, 2018, Burt Rigid Box, Inc., Oneonta, NY
The intermediate training is designed for operators and mechanics who have run rigid box machines for more than six to twelve months and can run basic work without guidance. The students will be trained on live machines, providing them the skills they need to run difficult materials, troubleshoot common causes of stoppages and waste, and set up a machine more efficiently and effectively. They’ll also learn how to perform intermediate maintenance on commonly- problematic parts.
March 13-16, 2018, Emmeci USA, East Providence, RI
Designed for beginning operators who have run machines for at least six months and are ready to go to the next level, the beginner course will show students how to set up a job from start to finish. They’ll learn how to use a squaring tool, how to make wooden frames and how to adjust forms, fingers, and other basic components of the machines. The session should give those operators who frequently need help from more experienced coworkers the tools and confidence to set up and run jobs on their own.
