PCT Participates in Introduce a Girl to Engineering Event
February 19, 2019
Team members from PCT volunteered for St. Ambrose University’s annual Introduce a Girl to Engineering event. For over 5 years, PCT has taught young girls about energy consumption using their kid-powered bike. Each year hundreds of girls participate in the event to learn about a variety of engineering jobs and skills – and to see if they can pedal fast enough to light up all the light bulbs on the kid-powered bike!
Check out a St. Ambrose student news clip covering this year’s event, which includes an interview with our Integration Engineering Manager, Dave Stephan.
Recyclable Pouch, Made with Ebeam, Featured at HP VIP Event
February 11, 2019
A new recyclable, mono-layer pouch was featured at the HP VIP event in Israel. The pouch is constructed of a GreenArrow film produced by Charter NEX Films. The film was printed using a HP Indigo 20000 digital press, finished with an EB-curable overprint varnish (OPV) with a Core 100 ebeam system, and pouched all at ePac’s Madision, WI facility. The combination of digital print and EB-cured OPV means this recyclable flexible packaging can go from computer file to pouch in a matter of hours!
