IST UV TECHNOLOGY FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
UV units of IST Metz with different working widths are used for the curing of two-dimensional or three-dimensional parts. A big advantage is the very compact and space-saving design of the units. Because of shorter drying distances they need less space. Surface treatment in industrial application makes special demands on the techniques used because of the three-dimensional objects involved.
