Under the motto "Tradition meets modernity", organiser and world market leader IST Metz once again welcomed 55 renowned exhibitors and industry partners to its headquarters in Nürtingen near Stuttgart in southern Germany. With more than 1300 visitors and 55 exhibitors, the UV Days were more well-attended and more diversified than ever before in terms of application technology.
With 13 industrial partners, industrial applications were represented more strongly than ever before at the UV Days. Even outside the printing industry, the application possibilities for optical systems are almost limitless. That’s why IST offers tailor-made systems and solutions as well as professional support and laboratory services with UV, LED and Excimer systems for industrial applications. At the in-house exhibition, IST Metz presented its new Excimer laboratory system for the first time in daily live demonstrations.
"Tradition meets modernity" was the motto of the ninth annual UV Days, which took place from 13-16 May 2019 in Nürtingen, Germany. Many industries are increasingly struggling to strike a balance between continuity and change. External pressure, digitalisation, artificial intelligence and autonomous manufacturing are just some of the reasons for this. While the world around is changing faster and faster, many people are looking to change down a gear and find stability. Now the digital hype has died down, analogue is experiencing a rebirth – it's all about 'offline' again!
Since 2002, we have been keeping national and international printing experts up to date with the latest news and facts on UV technology. Visitors from around the globe use the UV Days as an opportunity to meet and exchange experiences. The programme of presentations in German and English, workshops and demonstrations concludes with a joint get-together in the UV Lounge.
