At the Labelexpo in Brussels, IST METZ will be presenting the MBS range with its standard Hot Swap functionality at booth 5D21. In addition, the UV system manufacturer is presenting the BUY ONE, TRY ONE concept for the first time, enabling customers to test the new high-performance LED system for free.

LED technology is becoming more and more popular. However, there is still a requirement for UV lamps. IST METZ’s Hot Swap concept enables users to switch between tried and tested UV lamp technology and new LED technology at any time during the production process. During the switchover the outer housing remains in place on the machine. The LAMPcure unit is exchanged for an LEDcure system designed in the form of a cassette. Contact to the supply connections is created automatically by the insertion process. The entire exchange is completed without tools and within a very short space of time.

BUY ONE, TRY ONE – try out LEDcure for free

The question whether it is worthwhile for the company to upgrade the production process to the new LED technology can be clarified by the users for themselves during a free test phase. Within the scope of the BUY ONE, TRY ONE concept, IST METZ is giving customers the option of trying out the MBS LEDcure LED solution for free for a month when they purchase a MBS LAMPcure.

100% LED solution for printing labels

At the Labelexpo Codimag will be demonstrating their press at booth 11C10 fully equipped with LED technology. The machine, a VIVA 340 Evolution is designed for narrow-web label printing and is equipped with full LED features by IST METZ. This is IST METZ’s latest generation of MBS LEDcure-series air-cooled high-performance LEDs. The Viva Aniflo has the typical output of a conventional printing process, but simultaneously the flexibility of digital printing. This characteristic is further enhanced by the use of MBS LEDcure.
