MIGS U Continues Technology Training & Labelfreak Certification
On Monday May 6, Rick Jaehnert and Joe Kroll of Avantech visited Mold in Graphic Systems (MIGS) for a day of training. These gentlemen add their names to a growing list of individuals who have completed formal training at MIGS University since the company began its “Label Freak” Certification program in early 2018.
Rick and Joe are the second and third visitors from Avantech to complete formal training. During October 2018, Avantech President / Tom Innis attended an October MIGS University event to receive his “Label Freak” certification. In addition to attending the day of training along with 15 individuals from 11 different companies, Mr. Innis was also a featured speaker at the event.
Avantech’s commitment to training comes as part of a collaboration between their company and Mold in Graphic Systems. This includes featuring of MIGS Surface Enhancer products in the upcoming Avantech Catalog. When asked to comment, Avantech President Tom Innis had this to say, “Our affiliation with Mold In Graphic Systems aligns with our desire to collaborate with like-minded industry innovators, while driving mutual benefit to both our companies. Through the MIGS University experience, we build knowledge and insight on MIGS’ permanent labeling and enhancement products and deliver added value to the market.”
Recent visitors to MIGS during the early part of 2019 have come to see the company’s newest innovation for decorating olefin plastic. It’s a new technology that completely reinvents what people think they know about MIGS. Recent visitors with a background in injection and blow molding have been excited to find something totally innovative for labeling plastic, while visitors with a background in roto molding were blown away to learn that MIGS new labeling method does not require burnishing of graphics, does not require the use of clean-up of any adhesives and can be applied to a wider variety of parts than ever before.
In addition to Rick and Joe, the day of training also earned certifications for Mold in Graphic Systems employees Charlie Inch who joined MIGS in March as a Brand Specialist, and D.K. Green who is MIGS new General Manager. Since the MIGS University program was created, over 15 of MIGS own employees have completed the course.
