Sublimation Workshop at PVG College of Printing Technology, Pune

02 May 2022: When two mined people meet and wish to do something good for society, they do it and thus help others. Prof. Madhura Mahajan, HOD of Printing Technology, PVG College of Engineering and Technology, Pune, is always on the lookout for doing well for her students. She is keeping herself updated and thus brings those technology and technical know-how to the College for the benefit of students.

On the other hand, Hemanshu Desai of Venus Infotech, a professional with 40+ years of experience in the printing industry is ever ready to teach and guide whoever meets him with intention of learning “when requests come from progressive printing institutes.”

Prof. Shrikala met once during a conference and exchanged ideas about “what can be done for students’ benefit ?” Desai suggested that they should be given practical knowledge about all the printing technology that is not being covered in the regular syllabus. Prof. Mahajan agreed that PVG should conduct workshops and hands-on training for students in the College Lab itself.

So, on 30th April 2022 Hemanshu Desai conducted a workshop on “Sublimation Printing” at PVG. There were 70 students. They were divided into 2 batches. Each started with a basic theory of Sublimation printing and the importance of Colour Management. Students were also explained in detail about each piece of equipment and options and specifications available within them and how to choose equipment for the required application. In the practical session, they were shown how to make an ICC profile and how the complete process works. They also demonstrated the importance of designing and printing.

Small groups were made and each group contributed to the task of printing a sublimation mug. The tasks were creating the design, printing it on the printer and using a heat press to transfer the image to the mug.

Students were quite excited about the hands-on training and they were given the task of printing their T-Shirt or Mug, from designing up to finishing.

Prof. Mahajan thanked Hemanshu Desai for his valuable insights and felt the need for more practical training.
