The Working Without Waste Roadshow brings together a group of key suppliers to the label industry in an effort to resolve the main issues of waste in label printing and converting businesses.
For the next event on 10 February Working Without Waste is heading for Staverton Park, Daventry in Northamptonshire, England. Mike Fairley, director of strategic development at Labels & Labeling, will host the event.
On 17 February Working Without Waste will be at Avery Dennison, Oegstgeest (near Leiden) in the Netherlands. This event will be hosted by Andy Thomas, group managing editor at Tarsus Labels Group.
Seven experts from AB Graphic, Avery Dennison, AVT, Flint, GEW, GSE and Martin Automatic will share their insights and in seven presentations explain what it takes to identify sources of waste and how to deal with them in order to be increasingly profitable and competitive.
The European-wide campaign which started in Germany in November consists of a series of educational conferences with a presentation by each member on how to minimise waste by choosing the appropriate equipment and the proper work practices. Each event is held in a different European city normally in conjunction with another label industry convention or exhibition.
Working Without Waste started life as an initiative at GEW. GEW have found that energy efficient UV systems with electronic power supplies can reduce energy consumption by as much as 50%. Together with the other group member they will show that the effective use of machinery and resources is a key element in the overall reduction of energy and material consumption and can be a contributing factor in considerable productivity increases.
