and premium finshing techniques at the 9th UV Days event.
The members of the PrintCity Alliance are looking forward to
participating in the 9th annual “UV Days” event held by their newest member,
IST Metz. Two seminars will explore how to meet strict food safety requirements
while using premium finishing techniques.
This will be the theme of the 9th UV Days, an event which has
grown to become the largest in-house trade fair for UV and LED technologies in
the world. From 13 to 16 May 2019, IST Metz company grounds will once again be
transformed into a hub of the UV printing industry for transferring know-how
and exchanging experiences.
IST Metz joined the PrintCity Alliance last year and has now
issued invitations to all members to support the UV Days 2019.
“Since its introduction in 2002 as more of a seminar with
about 100 invited guests, the UV Days event has developed into the world’s
largest in-house trade fair for optical systems. We are looking forward to welcoming over 40
exhibitors and some 1,000 international visitors to our company grounds in
Nürtingen, Germany. For years now, the UV Days have no longer been just an
in-house fair, but rather a guarantee of first-hand expertise, a diverse
programme of events, leading industry contacts, award-winning print products
and a well-coordinated overall concept,” says Holger Kühn, Managing Director of
Sales at IST Metz, explaining the significance of the event.

design and material selection, to finishing and production.
Samples will be provided for visitors to experience the
visual and haptic effects.
The two seminars will be presented once daily throughout the
