KBA Applauds Attendance and Quality at Print UV 2015 Conference in Las Vegas
WURZBURG, GERMANY—March 13, 2015—As a platinum sponsor and key supporter since the Print UV conference's inception eight years ago, KBA North America was pleased with the attendance and quality of both the seminars and speakers at Print UV 2015, held at the Encore by Wynn Resort in Las Vegas from March 1-3. KBA praised the seminar’s management team that provided this important forum to discuss this fast-growing technology.
KBA representatives were on hand to provide their expertise. Dirk Winkler, director of KBA’s entire development/process technology department and R&D center including the demonstration and training center in Germany and product management, was empaneled on the seminar entitled New UV Technology Impact on Sheetfed Press Manufacturers in which he discussed how sheetfed press manufacturers, including KBA, design development and test methodology and rigorous development procedures to put UV technologies such as HR-UV and LED-UV through an arduous process long before these technologies are ever declared ready-for-delivery.
Chris Travis, KBA North America technology director at the Dallas facility where he supports the global sales team, product management, sales operations, field and factory demonstrations and oversees the KBA Customer Care Center, sat on a micro coating panel. He provided industry insight into new grit coatings applications and discussed how printers can use it and improve it in their pressrooms.
