Announced in advance as „the world’s largest in-house exhibition for UV and LED UV technology”, we now report official numbers: 45 exhibitors and 920 guests from 33 countries took part in the UV DAYS 2017, thereby breaking its own records. For four days last week the company area in Nürtingen near Stuttgart, Germany was dedicated for the eighth time to UV and LED UV technology. From 15th to 18th May IST METZ, together with 45 renowned exhibitors and industry partners, provided information about UV and LED UV in print and industry. The event consisted of several print presentations and lectures, company tours, laboratory visits as well as various topics on low migration, LED applications and industrial applications.
A special feature this year was the food packaging produced especially for the event, which was printed with the consideration of Low Migration. At the UV DAYS, however, not only the various food trucks, who provided the meals in food boxes this year, were very popular with the guests. There were also provided a number of new developments in programming: a panel discussion under the direction of the German trade journal Deutscher Drucker as well as impulse lectures by FESPA co-founder Frazer Chesterman took place for the first time. In addition, in cooperation with the VSKE, IST METZ presented a new guideline for the printing of food-safe packaging UV technology.
For the UV DAYS event IST METZ came up once again with something special: the PACKbag. The PACKbag is a mixture of “packaging” and “bag” and was printed and refined live during UV DAYS on the in-house sheetfed offset printing machine, a Heidelberg Speedmaster CD 102-7 LX. Matching the slogan of the event “Ready, Steady, Go!”, the shape of the PACKbag looks like the silhouette of a sports car and at the same time describes the function curve of the new high-performance LED system LEDcure, which was used for the first time during the live print job.
