RadTech Tech Accelerator Announces New Competition—Expands Outreach

Chevy Chase, MD (August 19, 2019) Start-ups, academics, students, and innovators are invited to apply for the RadlLaunch Tech Accelerator—now in its 3rd year. Cash awards, travel grants and outreach opportunities will be made available for novel work with ultraviolet and electron beam processes (UV+EB). New innovations in materials, optics, design and data, are propelling UV+EB in additive manufacturing/3D printing, inkjet, food packaging, automotive, medical and electronics applications. RadTech, the nonprofit for UV+EB Technology, created RadLaunch in recognition of the growing importance of the technology with the digitization of manufacturing and requirements for safe, clean, rapid processes.

RadTech has expanded the competition to include the use of UV for disinfection, partnering with the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) Americas Conference. IUVA focuses on public health and the environment, with a special focus on water, food and beverage and health care. K-12 Rising Scientists are encouraged to apply for special recognition of their work with UV or EB.

RadLaunch 2020 finalists will win cash and trips to speak and present at RadTech 2020 www.radtech2020.com and IUVA Americas 2020 www.iuva.org, March 8-11 in Orlando, FL. For more information and to apply, visit https://radlaunch.org

NIST and RadTech Announce Additive Manufacturing Roadmapping Workshop for October in Boulder, CO

Chevy Chase, MD (August 6, 2019) The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and RadTech, the non-profit industry association for UV+EB photopolymer chemistry are partnering to organize, Photopolymer Additive Manufacturing Workshop: Roadmapping a Future for Stereolithography, Inkjet, and Beyond, October 29-30, 2019 at NIST in Boulder, Colorado.

This workshop is the first of it’s kind for photopolymer additive manufacturing and draws on the experience and future plans of end-users, OEMs, resin suppliers, and researchers, to provide critical insights and perspectives on current capabilities, challenges, priority R&D needs, and future opportunities, especially as additive manufacturing innovation accelerates.

NIST has been instrumental in the growth and development of U.S. technologies and this new push into photopolymer additive manufacturing, led by Dr. Jason Killgore and Dr. Callie Higgins, materials research engineers at NIST. This workshop will build on their ground-breaking additive manufacturing and 3D printing work to bring technology leaders together. The meeting agenda targets the definition of state-of-the-art characterization techniques for resins and printers; determining where additive manufacturing technology is heading; and identifying measurement and standards barriers (opportunities) to achieving technology goals. A NIST facility tour to experience their research and resources is also planned. Please mark your calendars to ensure your organization has a "seat at the table," as NIST, in partnership with RadTech--The Association for UV+EB Technology, will post the meeting agenda and registration details later in August. For more information, please contact Mickey Fortune at mickey@radtech.org.
