A sample survey of attendees at the UV LED Curing Symposium in Chicago last month - hosted by Integration Technology Ltd. (ITL) and IST America - scored the value, content and networking aspects of the show "very good" while the event’s organization was summed up as "excellent" by the majority of those questioned.
More than 120 delegates from the semi-conductor, UV chemistry formulation and system integration industries, as well as end users, attended the one-day event where nine separate speakers struck a good subject balance among core technical state-of-the-art applications, how to integrate LEDs, and respective chemistry.
“The view overall is that LED performance will continue to improve though initial capital outlay remains a perceived barrier to entry,” says ITL North American general manager Jennifer Heathcote. “It was also agreed that the event provided a very realistic appraisal on the current status of the technology and gained substantive new ground in forging a better understanding of its enormous potential.”
The Chicago symposium followed IST and ITL’s seminar in Paris held earlier this year. Further events on the topic will be held in Europe next spring and on the US West Coast in 2013.
