Printweek hosted a live webinar on the 30th March 2022 that was ambitiously titled ‘The future of sheetfed printing’. Throughout the webinar, the expert panel of print leaders discussed the largely untapped opportunity that UV LED offers to commercial printers.
Empress Managing Director David May, Precision Proco CEO Gary Peeling and Flexpress Managing Director Steve Wenlock, all UV LED trailblazers, share their real-world experiences of switching to the technology and the impact it has had on their businesses.
In the 45-minute session, sponsored by GEW, the panel shared the real pros and cons of working with UV LED, whether retrofitted or configured from new.
Topics covered include:
- How litho can remain competitive in the commercial print arena
- What types of businesses and work mixes UV LED is right for and, importantly, wrong for
- The real cost impact of running UV LED
- What the manufacturers DON’T tell you
- The risks, if any, of not switching in the future
Prior to the webinar, Printweek Editor and session moderator Darryl Danielli commented: “I’m looking forward to a great discussion. Hearing from commercial print business leaders about their thoughts on the future of sheetfed litho and their own experiences of switching to UV LED should make for a really interesting discussion and one that I’m sure will be a must watch for many.”
The webinar was wrapped up with a Q&A session where the audience posted their own questions to the panel, which also included GEW’s Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland, Jamie Neill.
