Juni nach Nürtingen bei Stuttgart, wo der UV-Spezialist seinen Hauptsitz hat. IST METZ informierte über UV-Lampentechnologie genauso wie über die immer stärker nachgefragte LED-Technologie.

At UV DAYS 2015, the world's largest in-house exhibition of UV technology hosted by IST METZ, 800 guests from all over the world got to know the latest trends in UV printing. In keeping with the motto “UV rocks!”, a paper guitar has been printed and finished live at the event on the company's own sheet-fed offset press. It consists of two parts, the neck and the body, which are folded to make a three-dimensional solid. An app allows for the guitar to be "played". The guitar can also be used as a soundbox by means of laser fine cutting in the front of the body.
