Following the success of its Spring 2012 symposium, Integration Technology Ltd and marketing partner IST America return to Chicago this September with a one-day event dedicated entirely to UV LED curing. The move comes after ITL assisted RadTech's organising a two-and-a-half hour session on LED curing for its Chicago conference and exhibition.

“It was one of the most successful sessions we had – with standing room only” says Gary Cohen, Executive Director for RadTech. “There seems to be a thirst for information about UV LEDs from nearly anyone involved in UV curing”.

The roster of speakers this September includes experts from ITL and IST and a dozen of their industry partners with presentations focused on UV LED light sources, formulation of coatings, inks and adhesives, raw materials, UV LED measurement, system integration, market applications and an economic analysis of UV LEDs.

“An attendee, whether they are new to UV curing, or a veteran of the technology should walk away with a comprehensive understanding of the state-of-the-art in this fast growing technology” says Joe Ooten, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for IST America.

For a fee of $95, attendees will be able to attend a dozen technical presentations and expert panel discussions. Admission includes a luncheon, and a networking cocktail reception that includes a tabletop exhibition with hands-on demonstrations and samples of UV LED cured commercial products.

“The time is right for this kind of dedicated conference” says Jennifer Heathcote, Integration Technology’s US General Manager. “The demand for information is high, and the growing list of successful applications gives us a lot to discuss. As leader in UV technology, this symposium demonstrates our commitment to the market, and to creating a more informed group of partners and end users."

UV LED Curing Symposium is scheduled for Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at the Riverway Auditorium in Rosemont, IL (minutes from O’Hare Airport). For more information or to reserve a seat, visit
