Top Tech Experts Will Discuss New Developments at Print UV 2017 in Las Vegas
With the explosive rise in popularity of UV technology and especially LED-UV, KBA North America is pleased to be sending its top tech experts to speak at the upcoming Print UV 2017 conference at the Encore by Wynn Resort in Las Vegas from March 29-31. Top experts include Chris Travis, Dirk Winkler, and Michael Eichler, who have led the meteoric rise of this popular technology and spoken at length on its advantages and benefits. Now in its tenth year, Print UV 2017 will draw commercial, packaging, and specialty converters and printers to the three-day exploration of how it can be integrated into their shops. KBA continues its commitment to this popular technology and is a platinum sponsor and key supporter of this important event since its inception ten years ago.
One of the most popular subjects at this year’s conference will certainly be LED-UV. As experts in this field, KBA will be discussing new LED-UV technology in the market including KBA’s new VariDry LED-UV. LED-UV curing is an exciting low-energy drying technology that delivers numerous benefits. These include a particularly high print quality, ability to stand out on critical uncoated and offset stock with sharp dots and high color brilliance, no fold breaks even with high ink coverage due to elastic polymerization, and the elimination of printing powder. The LED-UV process is environmentally friendly because it consumes little energy and its ink systems are free from mineral oils. It consumes only 20% of the energy needed by conventional UV processes. KBA’s research and development team in Germany, along with its ink partners, have successfully integrated this instant cure-to-print technology as a modular, interchangeable LED-UV curing platform into its press line and is able to offer highly knowledgeable assistance to its current and prospective customers to immediately capitalize on LED-UV’s many advantages and benefits.
“I look forward to celebrating this extra special conference’s tenth year,” says Chris Travis. “Our plan is to introduce 10 different UV coating effects for our attendees to view and perhaps adopt in their own facilities for their customers.”
Catering to commercial, packaging, and specialty converters and printers, Print UV is the first industry event focused exclusively on the UV printing market. During the three days in March, a full agenda of exciting topics and knowledgeable speakers has been assembled to encourage, promote, and sustain the growth of UV printing while also providing unparalleled networking opportunities with leading UV industry suppliers and some of the most elite printers in North America. Conference sessions will touch upon new ideas and growth opportunities in the UV market, discover new UV core processes, and present case studies from successful UV print initiatives from around the world.
