IST Metz at drupa 2012
Friday, April 27, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
The future of IST METZ GmbH is green. With its focus on energy efficiency, Nürtingen’s UV system manufacturer will be further establishing its expertise at the printing trade fair drupa from 3 to 16 May in Düsseldorf: New, energy-saving units and LED technology will be the topics addressed at the 416 square-metre trade fair stand, which will also display the UV specialist’s new trade fair slogan “more³”.
With its mission statement “more than UV”, IST METZ GmbH has been referring to its broad spectrum of services for more than ten years now. There is a new trade fair slogan this year, right on time for the printing trade fair drupa: “With the term ‘more³’, we are updating our corporate philosophy of ‘more than UV’. We see ourselves as a full service provider of solutions for UV technology, and not just a system manufacturer. Furthermore, we have managed to integrate our product label for particularly energy-efficient UV units into the new slogan – that’s what the ‘e³’ stands for,” explains Dirk Jaegers, Managing Director of IST METZ, regarding the trade fair visit.
Printing demonstration: a journey through time with UV
New, energy-saving product series
The intelligent IPS control system governs all functions and components of the UV system. The BLK-6 systems are fitted with a UV online sensor as standard, which is integrated into the UV unit and facilitates the measurement of UV radiated power. The BLK-6 is also extraordinarily efficient. Instead of three BLK-2 type units (with 200 W/cm) as before, now the same excellent drying results can be achieved with just two new BLK-6 units (with 180 W/cm). Operating costs have been considerably lowered thanks to a significant reduction in current consumption.
New products for label printing
With more than 500 employees worldwide, the international UV system manufacturer wants to set new standards in the fiercely contested UV market: After establishing the versatility of UV technology, IST METZ is now proving that the era of high-consumption units is finally over. This has recently been seen in the inkjet printing sector: IST METZ GmbH will be holding practical demonstrations at drupa, highlighting the high-performance of UV LEDs in the area of drying.
Using an inkjet printing press from manufacturer m print, IST METZ will be demonstrating an integrated solution for the drying of UV inks on self-adhesive materials. This involves an IST MBS-5 LI end-of-press drying and a VTwin Plus LED pinning system from strategic partner Integration Technology Ltd. (ITL). Self-adhesive banderoles for bars of chocolate will be manufactured on the machine.
IST boasting large product portfolio
The company has already enjoyed success at previous drupa events: Taking part in the world’s largest event held every four years, IST METZ GmbH has always been the only UV drying system manufacturer with its own printing demonstrations at the trade fair stand. That there will be two printing presses operating simultaneously this year on the approximately 416 square-metre stand will no doubt cement its position as one of the leading exhibitors. Dirk Jaegers: “With this trade fair appearance, we will be successfully showing everyone what we do and underlining our position as the leading manufacturer for the years to come.”
