Print Media Performance and Training Classes

More than machines. A focus on customer needs.

Performance is tied to data driven results. Heidelberg Print Media Performance and Training Center, located outside of Atlanta, GA is here to meet those results and exceed expectations. Yes, we may be known for having a 30,000 square foot demonstration center, but we are more than top-notch machines and demonstrators, we are also educators.

Press Classes

Quality Printing and the Chemistry Behind the Print. Aug. 13-14th
Suitable for: Press Operators
Optimal inking and dampening settings are the prerequisites for excellent print quality. Operators will learn the chemistry behind the interaction of ink, water, rollers, plates, and how to maintain this balance within narrow tolerance during production.
Sheetfed Feeder Training. Aug. 13-14th
Suitable for: Press Operators
Quality printing begins with consistent feeding. This class will go over basic functions of each feeder component, how to set up for different substrates, and suction head maintenance.
Print Fundamentals. Nov. 5-6th
Suitable for: Press Operators
This class will focus on the critical elements of running an offset printing press, such as understanding different printing pressures, roller settings, chemistry, and color management.
Understanding UV. TBD
Suitable for: Press Operators and Shift Supervisors
UV is one of the most important technologies used in offset printing today. Operators will learn about the various types of UV ink, how they differentiate from each other, and how they differ from conventional ink. This class will also cover UV coatings, special effects including drip-off, and cost differences of each technology.

Postpress Classes

Introduction to Folding. Aug. 13-14th
Suitable for: Commercial Bindery Operators
You can’t invoice what you can’t finish. Take a step towards alleviating the bottleneck in your postpress department with operator training on folder functions, safe operating principles, user-level maintenance, and basic folding applications.
Advanced Folding. Nov. 5-6th
Suitable for: Experienced Commercial Bindery Operators
This class will build upon the curriculum taught in our “Introduction to Folding” class. Experienced operators will learn the components of a folder, safety, operation, maintenance, and advanced folding techniques including scoring and perforating.
Diecutting Best Practices. TBD
Suitable for: Diecutting Operators
In order to achieve optimum running speeds, master the best practices in diecutting such as lock up of tooling, preparation of patch sheet, laying counters and how to effectively strip waste.
Introduction to Folding and Gluing. TBD
Suitable for: Packaging Finishing Operators
Learn the basics of setting up and running a folder gluer. This training will cover basic carton styles and how to optimize their makeready for high running speeds.
Advanced Folding and Gluing. TBD
Suitable for: Packaging Finishing Operators
This advanced class will cover more complex folding gluing jobs, such as rear folding jobs and specialized carton styles, as well as troubleshooting “tips and tricks” and how to analyze errors.
Training is becoming more critical than ever — operator positions are declining at an alarming rate of 13% — approximately 20,000 jobs over the next 4 years. As the industry leader, Heidelberg has stepped up to launch free* training programs designed to build and grow the skills of future operators. But, not only that — these classes will also cover press maintenance, mechanical repairs, postpress equipment, and even management.
With your help and our commitment to achieving peak performance, you can take your people, processes, and overall business to the next level — all right here at the Print Media Performance and Training Center.
