RadTech-The Association for Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) Technology announces a move to Silicon Valley for its 4th bi-annual uv.eb West Conference, March 8-9, 2011. The new venue, in Santa Clara, CA, will leverage the depth of high-tech industries that may benefit from UV and EB processing advantages.
The 2011 event targets enabling solutions for next generation sustainable manufacturing processes, including photovoltaics, flexible displays, electronics, smart materials, energy storage, printing and converting, inkjet and mobile/field applied applications. New in 2011 will be a UV/EB Knowledge Colloquium, featuring a short course on the basics of the technology.
In addition to the conference offerings, there will be opportunities to exhibit, network, and participate in technology working groups.
Kay Mascoli, a San Jose-based industry professional, is joining the RadTech team for uv.eb West, offering a diverse background in high-tech marketing, event planning and new business development. Ms. Mascoli's most recent work has been in the printed electronics industry, where she managed the annual international business and technical conference for the FlexTech Alliance, as well as developed a new series of regional workshops to address critical product development needs for the industry.
Ms. Mascoli also worked extensively in the semiconductor equipment industry, both in the corporate sector and for the industry's major trade association, SEMI, and she played a key role in implementing major product launches at Apple Computer and Biosys.
UV and EB offer a high value, rapid throughput process for inks, coatings, adhesives and composites, which virtually eliminates emissions and lowers energy consumption compared with traditional methods. The technology provides a safe, fast, efficient process, and, as a result, the industry has been growing at more than twice the rate of traditional methods over the last several years.
