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

Introduction to UV/EB Materials

Dr. Mike Idacavage, VP Business Development, Colorado Photopolymer Solutions

September 9, 2015

Webinar Description:
The Energy Curable industry has grown tremendously since its beginnings in the early 1970s. The use of light or low energy electrons as the energy source for curing coatings is very attractive from a sustainability point of view. However, the main driving force for this technology has been the ability to lower process time and costs along with the ability to prepare coatings with unique properties. This webinar will present an introduction to UV and EB (Electron Beam) curing. In addition to the basic chemistry, an overview of various aspects of formulating for UV or EB coatings will be covered.
