First US UV LED curing symposium hailed a success – further events to be held in 2013

Q&A session underway at first US UV LED curing symposium, Chicago IL.

The first ever co-hosted ITL and IST conference on UV LED curing held in the US scored high levels of satisfaction from delegates and participants – further events on the subject in both Europe and the US West Coast in 2013.


A sample survey of attendees at the UV LED Curing Symposium in Chicago last month (September 2012) by organizers Integration Technology Ltd (ITL) and IST America scored value, content and networking benefit ‘very good’ while the event’s organization was summed up as ‘excellent’ by the majority of those questioned.

Over 120 delegates from the semi-conductor, UV chemistry formulation and system integration industries as well as end users attended the one-day event where 9 separate speakers struck a good subject balance among core technical state-of-the-art applications, how to integrate LEDs, and respective chemistry.

The top three rated presentations covered die technology and production as well as the economics and end markets for UV LED curing.  Presentations were complemented by two expert panel Q&A sessions, a sponsor exhibition including 15 table top displays, a luncheon and an evening cocktail reception. 

Key outcomes suggested that UV LEDs were not merely replacing LEDs but opening new market opportunities for a technology that was ‘going from strength to strength’.  

“The view overall is that LED performance will continue to improve though initial capital outlay remains a perceived barrier to entry,” commented 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 sometime in 2013.
