TUESDAY, MARCH 3rd (MORNING):
Start your day off right! Our second-day breakfast is just as full and hearty as the first, and is provided to all Print UV Conference registered attendees.
Good Morning and Welcome Back (Brahms)
Hans Ulland - Air Motion Systems, Inc.
Welcome back from what hopefully was a profitable night in Las Vegas. We hope you are prepared for another exciting and informative day of learning and getting to know others within your industry!
What We Learned at Print UV (Brahms)
We start the day by hearing from a printing company owner that has invested in attending Print UV over the years, and how the information gleaned has impacted his bottom line. Living in the trenches every day, our speaker will provide an engaging overview of implementing best practices on a UV press. This is proof that a clear-head and an open-mind on the second-day morning of the Print UV Conference can pay dividends!
Micro Coating Panel: Delivering True GRIT with a Soft Touch (Brahms)
Learn industry insights from a condensed Coating Effects Panel that focuses on new Grit Coatings Applications. Get straight answers on how this difficult process can be used and improved in your pressrooms. We will take a deeper look at Soft-Touch Coatings and other improvements that are a must in today’s highly competitive print market.

New UV Technology Impact: Ladies and Gentlemen Start your Engines!
LED-UV: A Revolution in Printing (Brahms)
Steve Metcalf - Air Motion Systems, Inc.
Stop the presses – rather, let’s pull out all the stops and run them at full capacity! The new era of LED-UV printing has arrived, and its worldwide growth is now outpacing traditional UV technology. Many printers are asking, “Wasn’t this supposed to take five years? So, what’s going on?” Steve Metcalf will explore the growth and exceptional benefits of LED-UV. Get in-depth answers from the LED technology market leader for sheetfed offset printing, and learn why LED-UV printing is taking over as the preferred method of energy curing. Some have described LED-UV as the final stage of evolution of the sheetfed offset litho press. We think you too will agree.
Prepare yourself for yet another fabulous lunch, and another chance to continue networking with other Conference-goers. Say hello face-to-face to our Conference speakers and ask that burning question as it applies to your operation.
LED-UV and Hw-UV Mega Panel: Real Life and Straight Talk (Brahms)
Moderated by Allen Jenkins, Director of the International LED UV Association (www.leduv.org)
As they say, “Let’s hear it straight from the horse’s mouth.” This is an incredible opportunity to hear from printers who choose to implement these new UV technologies, specifically H-UV and LED-UV. They will walk us through their decision-making process, why they chose the technology they chose, and also share what they have learned along the way. Their insights will help anyone considering implementing H-UV and LED-UV technology.
Panel Joined by: LED and High Wavelength UV Expert Vendors (Brahms)
We will break down the “nuts-and-bolts” of running LED and Hw-UV even further with support from vendors that help printers everyday be successful. If you are already using these technologies, or are considering it in the future, make sure you have a fresh notebook to take plenty of notes. The panel is prepared to answer all of your questions!
Break - Sponsor Area (Beethoven)
Join us for one last conference break for coffee, refreshments, and more networking! Before you go, shake one more hand, offer one more hello, and pass along one more business card.
You never know – who you’ll need to know – when there’s something you need to know!
New Process: Long Perfecting with LED UV Technology (Brahms)
Tom Bennett - Premier Printing
Gain real-life experiences and hear jaw-dropping results from a printer who recently converted his existing long-perfector machines into a production powerhouse by simply adding an LED-UV curing system. Whether you have a long-perfector or not, you are guaranteed to walk with a long list of do’s and don’ts including everything from retrofitting considerations to pressroom and bindery impacts to production techniques. Tap into Tom’s trials and tribulations; they might just save you a few headaches and many long nights on the pressroom floor. Tom might even convince you to add a long-perfector LED-UV press to your wish list.

Everyone loves Cold Foil – and Mike King is willing to share his knowledge of techniques, tricks and tips that make cold foil sing as a vital part of any print operation. Mike will share his knowhow in a clear and concise manner so you too can easily implement Cold Foil into your operation.
