Call for Papers for Advanced Materials & Process Conference

RadTech UV&EB Technology Conference and Exhibition 2014

Bethesda, MD (July 22, 2013) Fast emerging Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) technologies are enabling a wide spectrum of manufacturers to develop new products, enhance process control, increase throughput, lower material and energy use, and enhance sustainability efforts. RadTech is inviting companies to submit abstracts for the 12th biennial RadTech UV & EB Technology Expo & Conference 2014, taking place May 12-14, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL.


With typical attendance of well over 1,000 industry participants and a well established Conference Proceedings, all abstracts related to UV and EB curing technology are welcome. Planned sessions include: Additive Manufacturing / 3D Printing, LED Formulation & Equipment Advances, Advanced Materials, Corrosion Resistance, Sustainability, Nanomaterials, and Food Packaging. The 2014 event will include hot topics in technology development, including plans for a session on Touch Screens & Displays, featuring high refractive index materials, low refractive index materials, sealants, and scratch resistant coatings.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air – Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
