IST America has been selected as a UV curing system partner at Heidelberg’s newly named Print Media Performance & Training Center in Kennesaw, GA. The center opened its doors to the print media industry, customers, vendors, universities and trade associations earlier in the summer.
The 30,000 ssqft Performance & Training Center is the largest print demonstration center in North America and is equipped with multiple Heidelberg printing platforms including a Speedmaster CX 104-6+LX six-color press with fully integrated IST LampCure technology in both interdeck and end-of-press positions, in addition to a Speedmaster XL 106-8P+LX eight-color press with perfector. The XL 106 press has an IST LampCure end-of-press system installed in combination with Heidelberg Drystar LED UV in select interdeck positions, making it a Hybrid UV package. The Performance & Training Center will host in-person and/or virtual demonstrations for equipment and software, showcasing Heidelberg’s newest press and ancillary equipment technology.
IST America president, Bill Bonallo, commented: 'We’re honored to be partnering with Heidelberg US at their Performance & Training Center. There is no question that finding and retaining qualified production personnel is one of the most critical issues facing the greater print industry and I commend Heidelberg’s unwavering commitment to providing such an invaluable training and educational resource to the industry. IST America has been a Heidelberg partner for decades and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to support Heidelberg’s critically important efforts in this area.'
