The main task of the UV Technology Center is to share UV knowledge and provide our customers with application-oriented advice on any matter related to UV technology. The UV Technology Center (UVTC) was set up in May 2004 and is located right in the headquarters of IST METZ in Nürtingen. It works in close collaboration with UV Systems Sales and Marketing and with the IST Service and Research & Development departments. This facility further cements the contact between manufacturers, users and industry partners.

Print pattern analysis

The look and handle of printed materials are playing an increasingly important role in print finishing. We analyse print samples with regard to degree of finishing, ink-drying quality (curing) and design.

Heat recovery

If you have more than one UV system, it makes sense to talk about heat recovery. We collaborate on a project to work out the optimum energy efficiency of your UV system, taking account of your production set-up.
