Course material on UV-curable flatbed and UV-cured roll-to-roll printers and applications, for on-line or Distance Learning courses Print

The FLAAR material is available for on-line, distance learning, or traditional classroom courses by universities, colleges, community colleges, institutes, trade associations, or other groups interested in providing public education on UV-curable inkjet printing.

There is probably currently no course anywhere in the world on UV-curable inkjet printing. Since DRUPA 2008 offers so much material, this is an ideal locus for gathering material to update this course.

Since FLAAR is independent, this course material is available for your campus. You can either purchase a site-license (and have your own faculty give the lectures) or you can bring Dr Hellmuth to your campus to present his course in person. The material is especially useful for training-the-trainers. In other words, Nicholas can train your faculty so that in future years they can teach this course on their own. The material can be licensed for more than one year.
