At RadTech 2016, which takes place May 15-18 in Chicago, Illinois, leading manufacturers, suppliers and innovators will meet to learn more about Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) technologies for ink, coating, adhesive and resin applications.

Held once every two years, RadTech 2016 is the world’s largest UV/EB technology industry event and includes more than 100 presentations and 80 exhibitors. It is a one-stop resource for anyone interested in application solutions offering super-fast throughput, mass customization, sustainable materials, electronic interactivity and lightweighting.

Recently added sessions and activities include:

Material Innovation: A Discussion with Consumer Product Companies
RadTech has assembled major consumer product manufactures Steelcase Inc., P&G, Ford Motor, Pepsi Co. and 3M in a unique session to discuss how their companies prioritize, explore, vet and select new materials and technologies.

Over 30 presentations on UV-LED will be given in our conference sessions highlighting uses in printing and industrial applications. A special session on Deep UV-LED applications will cover much of the future development of the technology.

Automotive Applications
Ford and Toyota speakers have just been added to our Automotive conference session, with presentations on trends in lightweighting and UV as an enabling technology.

Food Packaging Regulations
Dr. Stephen Klump will share the latest from the Nestlé packaging safety and compliance program, as part of a panel discussion made up of leading ink and coating suppliers, along with a representative from Keller and Heckman.

3D Printing
A full-day is now dedicated to presentations and a panel discussion on new materials, additives and techniques for 3D printing using UV-curable resins and light sources.

With uses including wearable sensors and patches, wound care, drug delivery, 3D printing and tissue scaffolding, RadTech 2016 offers the basics on the design and applications of hydrogels in a new conference session.

Undergraduate and Graduate-level Short Courses
In addition to our just announced short course on UV-C LED’s, our educational offerings include an undergrad course for UV professionals, as well as more advanced graduate courses, Design of Experiments and Click Chemistry.

UV/EB Emerging Technology Awards
RadTech honors creative users of UV/EB technology, with past award winners including: Ford, GeckoBiomedical, the US Air Force, 3M and Gillette-Proctor and Gamble. We invite you to submit a nomination, and hope you join us at our Awards Dinner on Tuesday evening of the event.

Students are not only invited, but we offer two special competitions: a RadTech Student Lab video competition; and once again we are partnering with The Technical Association of the Graphic Arts (TAGA) asking students to create a poster design to showcase areas where UV/EB materials are used and the benefits of the technology.
