Cleaner Printing Technology workshops throughout Australia start in mid-April, organisers Printing Industries say.
The three-hour free workshops will be run in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Perth, as part of a strategy to tackle the energy cost challenge being faced by the printing industry.
“Energy costs are escalating and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. It’s very important that companies have the best tools at their disposal to manage these costs rather than letting them eat further into profit margins,” chief executive Bill Healy says.
“Printing Industries' goal is to develop a framework to help address the cost challenge and one important aspect of this is delivering useful and practical information and support tailored to printing business structures.”
The seminars will demonstrate how to minimise energy consumption within existing structural and technology conditions, and provide information on developments in digital and conventional printing press technology and their role in maximising energy efficiency.
A new buying group for members will also offer savings on electricity costs estimated at 11 per cent for a mid-sized company.
Workshop sessions run from 8-11am as follows:
Brisbane - April 17;
Sydney - April 18;
Canberra - April 19;
Melbourne – May 1;
Hobart – May 2 May;
Adelaide – May 3;
Perth - May 4.

The workshops are funded by the Australian government under the Enterprise Connect Workshops, Industry Intelligence and Networking initiative.
