IST Metz – Visitor record at UV Days

A record number of 800 visitors got informed about UV lamp and LED curing technology

GERMANY • “UV rocks” has been the motto of IST Metz for this year’s UV Days held in June at the company’s headquarters in Nürtingen near Stuttgart. The seventh edition of what’s said to be the world’s largest in-house exhibition of UV technology has beaten its own records once again: 800 visitors (2013: 600) from all over the world got informed about UV lamp technology as well as the increasingly popular LED technology.

The event comprised several printing demonstrations and lectures, company tours, lab tours and a large exhibition of partners from the printing industry. For this, more exhibitors than ever could be won – 35 companies (2013: 26) took part in the event. There was also high demand for the paper guitar, this year’s print gimmick for visitors. The printing of the guitar body, with the drying of inks and varnishes by means of UV light included, was demonstrated live, once with UV lamp technology and once exemplarily with a UV LED system. Furthermore the finishing of the guitar neck with hot-foil embossing was shown, also cured by means of UV light.
