NÜRTINGEN, GERMANY | IST METZ announces the sixth UV Days, taking place June 17–20 in Nürtingen. The international event, focusing on multi-functionality and sense perception, is presented with renowned partners from the printing industry and will present the message: Printing has a future.
One highlight will be a multifunctional folded box manufactured in UV sheet-fed offset printing said to appeal to all the senses by means of high-class coatings and embossing. During the curing of inks and varnishes, company’s UV systems are used as interdeck and end-of-press dryers, enabling filigree coating effects to be realized on the folded box.
“At the UV DAYS we will, of course show, all the possibilities our UV curing systems offer,” says Dirk Jägers, managing director of IST METZ. “But we also think outside the box and will present opportunities beside printing and finishing that will make print products stand out in the future. The combination with computer-based media and printed electronics, e.g., creates an added value to the folded box at the point of sale.”
Company says there also will be printing demonstrations on the topics of 3D varnishing in UV inkjet, digital label printing, and LED UV technology on a flexographic press. Exhibitors will include printing press manufacturers, ink and coating producers, and more. Recent examples of printed electronics and possibilities for the combination of print products with digital media will also be presented.
