BIG IDEAS for Your UV Coating Line

All customers want to have success implementing a UV application and it is easier to achieve that success when you look at UV as an overall PROCESS.

Within the process there are three main components:

  • Customer
  • UV Equipment Integrator
  • Coatings Technology Partner

These components lead to the following benefits:

  • Sustainability / Environmental Advantages – No VOC’s or HAP’s
  • Great Overall Process Improvements – Faster Production Speed
  • Improved Product Performance
  • Lower per linear foot coating costs

This workshop-style presentation will review the stages and methodologies to insure success in implementing a UV coatings line.

Speakers include:

  • Michael Kelly, Allied PhotoChemical Inc.
BIG IDEAS for Direct to Object Printing
Moderator: Dianna Brodine, UV+EB Technology Magazine

  • Nick DiBlasi, JUNO DTS
  • Holly Steedman, Integration Technology Ltd.
  • Jay Roberts, Roland DGA Corporation
  • Jay Larsen, INX International Ink Co.

Direct to object printing has continued to be a popular choice for all types of cylindrical and other 3D products. This growth has been sparked by the need for lower-cost manufacturing and sustainability advantages versus applied labels. UV and UV LED inks provide many benefits for direct to object applications, including increased running speeds, superior print quality, and more. Our panel of experts will discuss the benefits of UV and UV LED print applications, review challenges and limitations, and assess the sustainability advantages of UV and UV LED for direct to object printing.
