IST METZ Counting Down to drupa

Drupa 2012 is set to run May 3-16, 2012, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

NUERTINGEN, GERMANY—April 24, 2012—Innovation and the conservation of resources will be under the spotlight, presented by UV drying system specialist IST METZ in Düsseldorf at the world’s largest printing trade fair drupa. It has been all systems go to ensure the outing is a success; preparations have been underway for months now just to ensure the elaborate printing demonstrations on two large printing presses will even be possible.

Anyone looking to make a good impression at the world’s largest printing trade fair must have something special to offer and IST METZ is planning another successful presentation this year.

“When the opportunity arises to meet with such a concentrated mix of industry representatives, and this only every four years, all the stops need to be pulled out to ensure it is a success,” explains Dirk Jaegers, managing director of IST METZ GmbH. And the company group is doing exactly this: There will be two printing units displayed on over 400 square meters of exhibition space with six printing demonstrations taking place daily, showing the international public the possibilities offered by the UV drying technology from IST.

The benefits to this technology have since been recognized by the industry: The solvent-free UV inks dry in split seconds and thus guarantee speedy processing. This means extraordinary effects can be applied to a large range of materials—and IST METZ has been leading the way in the development of this technology for 35 years.

And to ensure the company remains on top, participation every four years in the drupa event in Düsseldorf is a must. As is often the case, practical experience is often the most convincing argument when boasting the superiority of a specific technology. IST METZ is thus once again giving its all, displaying two printing units directly at the trade fair stand equipped with their own drying systems and producing “results to take home”.
