Mike Higgins, director of sales – Americas, will present, “Using UV-A to your Advantage: Black & White Edition” during the Overcoming Challenges session (10:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.) on Monday, May 7, 2018.

On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, Jennifer Heathcote, global director of business development – Curing, will discuss, “UV LED Flexographic Printing” during the Printing + Packaging I session (8:00-10:00 a.m.). She will be presenting, “Characterizing UV LED Curing Systems” during the UV LED II session (3:30-5:30 p.m.), and she will be moderating the “Future of UV LED Chemistry” panel on Monday, May 7 from 1:15 to 2:00 p.m. in the Exhibit Theater.
“UV LED flexography excels in areas that are in high demand today and require superior process control to stay ahead of the competition, from printing on prime PS labels to shrink film to low migration flexible packaging,” Heathcote said. “UV LED is now the preferred and superior technology for flexo printing, but not all UV LED systems are the same. It’s critical that OEMs and converters select the right UV LED system for their application.”
