Prati’s Sun Classic showcased at ADKCAvery Dennison joins hand with X-Rite and PratiAvery Dennison has joined hands with X-Rite and Prati to showcase the latest trends and innovations in the printing industry through its knowledge centre, Avery Dennison Knowledge Centre (ADKC). Avery Dennison introduced the new Prati slitter inspection machine, Sun Classic, at its ADKC in Bengaluru in November 2014, along with the new X-Rite spectrodensitometer.
Avery Dennison also has a training centre in Pune“At ADKC, the purpose of constantly bringing in new equipment and
product is not simply to promote them. They are educational tools that
we use to demonstrate the most advanced technologies involved in label
printing,” says Anil Sharma, ‎vice president and managing director for
South Asia and Sub Saharan Africa at the Avery Dennison Materials Group.

ADKC provides a programme for converting partners to send their
employees to receive training on label printing. Participants also learn
about the common issues faced by converters. To date, more than 80
converting partners have visited ADKC and have attended the programme.

addition, based on customer requests, ADKC offers customized
programmes, helping customers address their own issues from the
production floor. Eight such programmes were conducted in 2014. ADKC
also works closely with the Label Manufacturers Association of India
(LMAI) to empower young graduates from technical and printing institutes
through a special training programme. The five weeks programme enables
students to upgrade their technical skills and credentials with
professional certification.

“We piloted a training programme
along with the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI) and
trained five students from various institutes, and LMAI helped them find
employment within the industry,” says Sharma, managing director, South
Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, Avery Dennison. Avery Training Centre’s
next challenge is to train 75 to 100 students in the next 12 to 18
months. “We will give our best to make this happen and we should
probably have a batch in December 2014. Hopefully we should be able to
make 2015 a more regular and routine year. So, we are moving on track
and LMAI is the thought leader and support behind this endeavour,” says
