RadTech North America and RadTech Japan have agreed to a memorandum of understanding to exchange information and expand activities in the technical and market development of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) technology.
“As the growth of UV and EB accelerate worldwide, this agreement will help foster continued partnership between the U.S. and Japan to support researchers and manufacturers in the application of the technology,” said David Harbourne, RadTech president and president of Fusion UV. The agreement specifies a number of areas for cooperation which will enhance the sharing of data and information through publications and events.
“UV and EB research and industrial efforts in each country offer unique strengths,” said Tadatomi Nishikubo, president, RadTech Japan, and dean of faculty of engineering, Kanagawa University. “The combined strengths of our organizations will assist important UV and EB research and implementation efforts, and help us better support the adoption of our technology by manufacturers around the world.” This agreement has a term of two years, renewable by mutual consent.
