“We have entrusted Pradeep Kulakkada of Printers Guild to conduct the orientation class for KMPA. The syllabus and faculty for the orientation course are developed under his guidance. After each course exams will be conducted to gauge the knowledge the students have gained and guide them accordingly for their future,” said G Rajesh, honorary secretary of KMPA.
Around 50 second year printing technology students from Government VHSS, Maradu will undergo on-job training at KMPA member’s units after the one day orientation class.
The programme was inaugurated by S Saji, president of KMPA.
The KMPA team has been very busy. Last month 20 members completed a 10-day tour of Japan and a shortstop in Sri Lanka.
According to Rajesh, one of the highlights of the visit was the team’s interaction with Yoshiharu Komori, chairman and CEO of Komori. The other news is the unveiling of the upcoming Print & Beyond 2018 seminar logo.
“We visited the two Komori plants, witnessed a live demo of their presses. We were also briefed about the production cycle of the presses and highlights of the various presses,” said Rajesh.
The team also visited RMGT and Horizon factories where a production line of machines was shown.
