Success at UV Days 2023

Print Solutions

At the recent UV Days, which took place from in early July, organiser IST Metz welcomed around 1000 guests and 40 exhibitors from a total of 32 countries.

More than 30 impulse and short lectures, 18 company tours as well as 21 live demonstrations at the in-house excimer laboratory system and simulations of the UV measuring device UV Analyzer, a multifunctional in-house developed champagne packaging and a Swabian wine village – these were the 11th UV Days of IST Metz, a market leader in the field of UV and LED curing systems.

‘We are pleased about the great success of the 11th edition of our in-house exhibition – especially after the pandemic related break of several years. With around 1000 visitors and 40 exhibitors, UV Days was nearly as well attended and as broad in terms of applications as before the break,’ said Tim Sterbak, managing director of IST Metz GmbH & Co KG.

Together with PrintCity Allianz and Benz Catering, the company has developed an outer packaging for the sparkling wine bottles from Germany's oldest sparkling wine producer, Kessler. The high quality produced and finished packaging experiences a double benefit in that it can be further used as a bottle cooler. The outer packaging was designed as a container for the transport and presentation of sparkling wine from Kessler in Esslingen am Neckar. The packaging is designed as a two part box, so that after transporting it can also be used for attractive presentation of the bottle at the table. The special feature here is an integrated cooling system consisting of a cardboard container that can be filled with ice and is made of water repellent coated material. This means that the bottle can remain at the table and is cooled at the same time.

With ten industry partners, industrial applications were particularly well represented at this year's UV Days. Even outside the printing industry, the possible applications of optical systems are almost limitless. Therefore, IST Metz offers customised systems and solutions as well as professional support and laboratory services with UV, LED and excimer systems for industrial applications. The company’s systems are used in the processing of materials such as glass, plastic or wood and wood based materials.
