Impulse Radiation Drying was developed in 1968 in the Hildebrand company in Oberboihingen. Gerhard Metz was the Technical Director of the development department and constructed and commissioned the first UV laboratory systems. In 1982, a private company was established, IST Strahlentechnik Metz GmbH under the leadership of Gerhard Metz. From its early days IST METZ had its own philosophy about the construction and performance of UV lamps: the lamps form the heart of every system and only the highest quality can guarantee optimal performance and long-life.
IST METZ is known as the world market leader in the field of UV curing systems based on ultraviolet light, infrared and warm air
Cazander takes pride in offering IST Metz UV-ovens regularly from their extensive stock.
