Several presenters at the sold-out Print UV 2009 technology conference, held March 8-10 at the Wynn Encore resort, declared that UV and hybrid UV technology might well represent the future of the offset printing industry. Based on the impressive turnout for the event, it would seem that many printers agree and are eager to capitalize on the opportunity.

Print UV 2009, the first and only conference dedicated exclusively to the burgeoning UV print market, has booked a return engagement March 8-10 at the all-new Encore Wynn Las Vegas. Following the enormous success of the inaugural Print UV conference in 2008, organizers of this year’s event are busy putting the final touches on a dynamic, cutting-edge educational and networking program designed to promote the growth of UV printing throughout the graphic arts industry.

Air Motion Systems, Inc. (AMS), a leading North American manufacturer of high-performance UV curing systems, IR/Thermal Air drying systems and related accessories for the printing industry, recently introduced its third-generation Peak 3 (P3) Web UV(TM) Curing System to the North American market at Graph Expo 2008, where it earned an overwhelmingly positive reaction from web print customers. The company is proud to report that early adopters have awarded the revolutionary in-line system high marks for the outstanding durability, high performance and total UV flexibility that are the hallmarks of AMS-engineered products.
