RadTech Reports Technology Accelerator

CHEVY CHASE, MD | RadTech, the Association for UV & EB Technology, announces the formation of RadLaunch, a unique technology accelerator that will support early-stage startups and small businesses as they drive advancements in clean, sustainable, efficient, and energy-saving, next-generation technologies. The mission of RadLaunch is to connect technology startups to UV+EB industry leaders.

The fast emergence of innovative materials, additive manufacturing/ 3D printing, and the use of new tools such as UV LEDs and inkjet, are accelerating the use of UV+EB as replacements for harsh industrial processes and chemicals, and as a way to eliminate waste. RadTech says several startups are already seeing the benefits of using UV+EB technology, and the organization is working to support their efforts to lead the future of manufacturing.

RadLaunch applicants will be vetted and judged by Accelerator sponsors including Chris Seubert, Ford Motor Company; Hui Yang, Procter and Gamble; and Mike Idacavage, Colorado Photopolymer Solutions. “Innovative start-up companies may face challenges in making the best use UV+EB,” says Mike Idacavage, Colorado Photopolymer Solutions and board member of RadTech. “RadTech has identified these potential hurdles and is working to help remove barriers. As part of this effort, in addition to supporting funds, RadTech will offer something potentially more valuable to a startup—mentoring and networking to help foster start-up success, especially in the early stages of growth.”

Selected RadLaunch technologies will be featured at the RadTech 2018 Conference and Exhibition, May 7–9, Chicago, IL.
