Chevy Chase, MD (January 10, 2018) As the use of ultraviolet and electron beam (UV+EB) processes continues to grow and new applications arise, traditional manufacturing firms are customizing their equipment for these fast emerging technologies. Crucial product and service providers in areas such as fluid delivery, robotics, application equipment, conveyance, controls, testing, inspection, systems integration, and health and safety are increasingly finding their customers moving to UV+EB platforms. To support their efforts to address these new market opportunities, RadTech, the non profit trade association for UV+EB, has started a new Applications Support Committee.

“The depth and breadth of UV+EB technical information, and the networking and partnership opportunities provided by RadTech are instrumental in the growth of this technology and vital to a wide array of manufacturing equipment and service providers,” says Mike Bonner, Saint Clair Systems vice President, and RadTech Board Member. “There are many firms like mine that find their customers are either adopting, investigating, or have expressed an interest in UV+EB technologies, and our goal is to create a resource for them at RadTech.”

The Applications Support Committee meets next at the RadTech winter meeting in Miami, all are welcome, and there is no charge for the meeting.  For more information on the new committee, please visit www.radtech.org and contact RadTech at uveb@radtech.org.
