Eductation: Ball State's press operators

Two dozen students from Muncie, IN-based Ball State University’s Graphic Arts Management program spent a day in February on a technology tour visiting Rapid Impressions, a sheet-fed printing facility in Broadview, IL.

Rapid Impressions ran commercial jobs on its six-color MAN Roland (Westmont, IL) press. That visit followed a trip to MAN Roland’s plant, where the students mounted plates on a 41” MAN Roland 700 press, helping out on two six-color printing jobs. The field trip was part of the press supplier’s Learning Leadership effort. Ball State and MAN Roland plan to make the field trips recurring events. “It’s important to attach the actual process to the learning because students know if they can touch it, they can understand it,” says Hans Kellogg, Ball State’s assistant professor of industry and technology. For more information, call MAN Roland’s director of marketing Christian Cerfontaine at 630/920-5851.
