PCT Engineered Systems to Host Ebeam Open House
PCT Engineered Systems will host an open house on May 19 — the day after the 2016 RadTech Conference concludes in Rosemont, Ill. — at its headquarters in Davenport, Iowa. Anyone interested in gaining better insight into ebeam technology is welcome to attend the open house. Conference attendees and others located near Rosemont can take advantage of a complimentary round-trip chartered coach, which will depart from the Hyatt Regency O'Hare that morning.
Ebeam technology has been long associated with delivering powerful, safe and cost effective curing and crosslinking solutions, most often on web offset presses. However, ebeam curing solutions now exist for digital inkjet, flexographic, and gravure printing applications. Ebeam is also expanding into other application areas like 3D curing, surface sterilization and coating curing for wood, composite building materials and metals.
Misconceptions about ebeam still exist, primarily because companies that have invested in ebeam solutions rarely open their operations to the public. PCT believes that the variety of operating machinery, technology overviews, application demonstrations and other activities planned during the open house will help to enlighten those who have encountered limited ebeam technology accessibility.
“We will have at least six operating ebeam systems of varying sizes on our shop floor during our May open house, as well as our pilot line and EBLab R&D system,” PCT General Manager Terry Thompson, said. “This event is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in ebeam technology to get first-hand experience with a wide variety of machine configurations and ebeam applications.”
The tour bus will leave the Hyatt Regency O’Hare at 8am Thursday morning and make the two-and-a-half hour trip to PCT. Guests will receive an overview of ebeam technology, tour the PCT facility, enjoy lunch, and experience several ebeam applications before returning to the Hyatt at 5pm that afternoon. Anyone interested in attending the open house or learning more about it should contact PCT Marketing Manager John Salkeld at 563-285-7411, ext. 4409 or at email@example.com.
