Intertronics will one of four leading companies in the fastening and adhesives sector to present technical seminars at the forthcoming FAST Exhibition, taking place on September 10th at the Williams Conference Centre in Grove, Oxfordshire.

This company will present a paper entitled Curing adhesives, coatings and sealants with light and believes that its presence in the exhibition itself, will give visitors the opportunity to discuss the benefits with the team on their exhibition stand.

In the free seminar (pre-registration required), Intertronics managing director Peter Swanson will describe how UV/visible light curing has given manufacturers process advantages, including speed, for some decades. Proven applications include structural bonding, protective coatings, temporary masking and form-in-place gaskets, in sectors such as electronics, medical devices, automotive and aerospace.

The workshop will review the technology, including the latest developments with the use of LEDs as a source for curing light, which can offer significant advantages over conventional broad spectrum UV sources. The range of materials which are optimised to cure with LED lamps is expanding, and includes plastic, glass and metal bonding. Examples will be given to demonstrate the benefits applicable to a wide range of manufacturing operations.

Other seminar presentations being given by exhibitors at the event are as follows:

Innovative Solutions for challenging assemblies presented by Michael Stumpf, Global Product Manager (Thread Technology) - Bollhoff Fastenings

Advanced isolating materials for electrical and electronics assembly by Neil Wilson, UK Sales Manager – Electronics Segment, Lohmann

Why do bolted joints come loose and how can we prevent it happening? by Richard Waddington, UK Sales Manager, Nord-Lock
