BETHESDA, MD - RadTech, the Association for UV and EB Curing Technology, has set Oct. 20-21, in Niagara Falls, NY, for the UV and EB curing industry technology conference. The event is aimed at introducing and promoting the technology to industries including metal, plastics, wood finishing, packaging and printing, and electronics applications. Dubbed uv.eb EAST, the event is co-sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
Electro-technologies such as UV and EB curing processes can produce significant energy and productivity efficiencies. When used for curing of inks and coatings, it is an instantaneous process that offers substantial productivity enhancements. It also eliminates the need for VOCs to be used as diluents. Use of this electro technology also reduces natural gas heat requirements by eliminating the need for thermal oxidizers used in VOC destruction. All of these benefits meet NYSERDA's goal of supporting technologies and innovations that provide an economic, environmental and energy benefit to companies within New York State.
The event will feature close to 40 of the UV and EB industry leaders in a table-top exhibition that will take place during lunches and receptions.
