The Laboratory of Pulp and Paper Science and Graphic Arts (LGP2) of Grenoble INP-Pagora is taking part in the EncuPack project (Energy Curable Packaging) whose aim is to develop and promote the use of this technology (ink and drying) in offset printing.

This project is supported by the European Union’s EuroStars program which funds R&D projects taken on by innovative SMEs.

Despite its advantages, especially for lower pollutant emissions into the atmosphere and the ability to print on non-porous substrates, including metal and plastic, UV offset technology has not found wide acceptance among printers as they are unfamiliar with this technology or claim to be put off by the printing problems associated with UV technology.

It is for these reasons that the corporations Sinapse Print Simulators (France) and MetaPrint (Estonia) have joined forces together with the Laboratory LGP2 with the aim to develop a training simulator and a diagnostic troubleshooting help system.

In addition, several leading industrial companies already using UV technology – Felix Böttcher, IST-Metz, KBA MetalPrint, Zeller & Gmelin in Germany, UPM Kymmene in Finland – have joined EncuPack to bring their specialized expertise and to verify the realistic and applicable characteristics of the project results which will be available in 2014.
