AMS Spectral UV has announced its sponsorship of Print UV 2019 (March 27 to 29), the leading conference for printers who employ UV based curing technologies as part of the commercial and packaging printing process. AMS Spectral UV also confirmed it will unveil new LED-UV curing technology products at the event.
‘Print UV is unlike any other conference in the world when it comes to providing a forum where printers can exchange information openly with their peers,’ said Steve Metcalf, president of AMS Spectral UV. ‘You won’t find another event where printers are more honest about their processes, the products they use and the challenges they face. AMS Spectral UV knows that by participating in Print UV, we are helping those who invest in our technology realise the best possible results by supporting a forum where they can share ideas with industry colleagues new and old alike.’
He added that AMS Spectral UV plans to take the wraps off of new products in its LED-UV curing technology line up at the event that will significantly extend its leadership position in the field.
‘We are excited to show Print UV guests the latest generations of our LED curing technology,’ said Steve. ‘AMS Spectral UV has continued to invest in research, development and engineering, and our new products elevate and enhance what LED based curing can do.’
Print UV 2019, which is the 12th edition of the event, will welcome printers to discuss the latest processes and advancements in the realm of UV printing, which uses ultraviolet light to ‘cure’ inks and coatings, instead of drying processes that are based on heat and evaporation.
UV curing based printing has existed for decades, and today is one of the most prominent methods used by printers to print on specialty substrates and achieve special effects – like spot gloss and metallic – when creating printed works.
