Future of UV/EB Advanced Manufacturing: Trends, Strategies, and Applications

Future of UV/EB Advanced Manufacturing: Trends, Strategies, and Applications

To advance energy curing training, education and professional practice, RadTech International, North America (RadTech) and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) have partnered to create programs that bridge academic and professional development.

The Future of UV/EB Advanced Manufacturing: Trends, Strategies, and Application is a free national webinar series that addresses timely and relevant trends, issues and applications for individuals and organizations committed to expanding or exploring Ultraviolet/Electron Beam (UV/EB) curing technologies.

Webinars typically entail sixty minutes of real-time presentation and interactive facilitated discussion with the participants. This webinar series will also feature training and education opportunities available through the SUNY-ESF/RadTech collaboration. All webinars are offered free to interested individuals.

See below for upcoming webinars and past webinars.

What's Next?

In addition to the Future of UV/EB Webinar Series, the Radiation Curing Program (RCP) offers opportunities for students and industry professionals to prepare for new careers, advance in current roles, or simply better understand these technologies.

Professional Development Short-Courses:

Graduate-Level Short Courses:

RCP offers three graduate-level online courses that provide foundational and advanced treatment of current and emerging UV/EB curing principles and applications. These 500-level courses may be taken for graduate credit or for non-credit professional development. Participants taking all three core courses for credit can earn a Graduate Certificate in Radiation Curing from the State University of New York.

Upcoming Webinars

The Cure for the Common Design: Using Specialty Effects to Enhance your Shelf Appeals

Sidney Hutter, Sidney Hutter Glass & Light, Inc.

December 8, 2015

Webinar Description: 

This presentation will discuss the research and use of UV and related technology in my fine art glass sculptures.  As a leading member of the contemporary glass art movement, my work has gone through several changes over the years and UV technology has been at the forefront of my studio practice.  As a studio artist, I have had to adapt commercial practices to my small scale applications.  I will briefly discuss the history of my art and use of UV technology from 1989 to the present, leading to recent adventures in Colored and Special Effect Pigment technology.  In addition I will discuss the incorporation of Dispersing and Suspension Agents and the reexamination of photo initiators used to create my own UV adhesive recipes.
