A Prescription for
Healthy UV Curing on Wood


Wednesday, August 24 from 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Session Code: MFG1

Location: B301 (located in Building B - Level 3)

Presented by: EIT LLC

Speaker: Jim Raymont, Director of Sales: EIT Instruments

Many ills can befall a UV wood curing process. This session will prescribe how to apply better UV measurement and process control to diagnose common UV ailments when working with wood products. We examine how equipment selection and maintenance including issues specific to new UV LED light sources affect proper coating performance. When it comes to production problems, an ounce of prevention is often worth a pound of cure. This presentation also shows how simple preventative care using a few simple tests can avoid a visit to the UV emergency room.
