UV LED webinar series 2024:

In 2024, RadTech Europe will host a new UV LED webinar series. Last year, the topics were on UV LED basics and general knowledge. This year, we want to take a closer look into UV LED in certain applications. We are planning on 8 webinars in total. See below the webinar planning so far. Registration is open to all.

Wednesday 5 June 2024 3 PM CEST - Exploring the opportunity with LED curing for wood coating
Presented by David Ivarsson, Efsen

This seminar will go over both general and specific benefits with the UV-LED technology in the wood coatings industry, with examples from commercial production where the technology has been implemented. The main challenges with the technology will be discussed, along with strategies to overcome these challenges, both from a process, technology and formulation point of view. Some light will also be shed on what application steps are the easiest to convert to LED and what makes for a quick return on investment.


Monday 17 June 2024 3 PM CEST - 3D printing: A UV LED perspective
Presented by Mike Idacavage, Radical Curing LLC
WATCH RECORDING Passcode: @qK&3?69 

Tuesday 2 July 2024 3 PM CEST - UV LED for Inkjet Printing
