Campus character

The gates of the UV open daily at 10 a.m., after which visitors can organise their day on the Campus according to their own interests. The heart of the new campus at the IST METZ headquarters is the state-of-the-art research and development laboratory. The so-called UV Technology Campus combines application, process and product development in one place. The campus is complemented by the so-called LEDLab. In the new competence centre, a team of technology experts researches and develops the next generation of high-performance and sustainable UV LED systems.

The programme also includes talks and presentations on the latest trends in sheetfed, label and metal decorating, as well as UV, LED and excimer technology in printed electronics or wood applications, LEDs in newspaper printing, water and air sterilisation using UVC, sustainable production and recycling, and de-inking.

A print product developed together with the PrintCity Alliance for UV Days 2023 will be presented, combining all facets and strengths of UV technology along the entire production chain.
