BETHESDA, MD | Radtech Intl. reports top US manufacturers showcased fast-growing ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) processes at the recent uv.eb WEST 2013 in Redondo Beach, CA. Among the headline speakers were Boeing, General Mills, and PepsiCo.
Attendance was up over 50% from the last event, organizers say, and UV and EB technologies on display demonstrated how new materials offer significant cost, environmental, energy, and quality advantages for US industries transforming their processes. The event documented several examples of UV and EB enabling new paradigms for process technologies in printing, consumer packaging, composites, corrosion, and weathering resistance, and field refinish/repair.
With a grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Radtech’s next event, uv.eb EAST, will be in Syracuse, NY, October 1–2, 2013, in partnership with the State University of New York College of Environmental Science And Forestry Institute for Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing.
