Fogra User Forum on "UV Printing"

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Fogra Graphic Technology Research Association organizes a Forum on UV Printing in Munich, Germany, on 30/31 October 2012 - with simultaneous German/English interpreting.

The profile of UV printing keeps on climbing. Fast hardening in combination with the high gloss that can be achieved offers a variety of unrivalled options for the finishing of printed products. This allows a printing company using UV drying to occupy niches or create new ones where quality is paramount rather than just price.

However, absolute control of the UV printing process is vital and it is important to stay constantly abreast of technology. This can only be achieved through close contact with the suppliers of inks, coatings, papers, films and dryers. Besides lectures about the latest new developments launched at drupa or other trade events, this year’s Fogra user forum is a proven opportunity to do just that. Once again, a substantial contingent of experts from the press, ink and paper manufacturers as well as other suppliers will be on hand for detailed discussions.

The first day will look at new developments in the market and this time the position of electron beam technology will be compared with UV curing.

The focus of the lectures on the second day will be on the extent to which the UV LEDs that were the focus of interest at the last user forum have established themselves and where they can be used to good effect.

Without the right consumables even the best dryer is no use and so a number of lectures on the second day will look at consumables. Many companies should find it particularly interesting to learn which cleaning agents are permitted by the health insurance associations.

However, the lecture programme is only one part of the event. The other part is the one-to-one exchange of experience. The social evening at the end of the first day of lectures and the ‘Get together’ programme are ideal opportunities to meet old acquaintances and forge new contacts.
