Intertronics launches adhesive and dispensing technology seminars

In a bid to help grow the adhesives, dispensing, and curing technology knowledge base of British manufacturing companies, Intertonics is offering seminars for customers under the adhere academy brand.

The training sessions can be held at a business’ premises, online or at the Intertronics Technology Centre in Kidlington near Oxford, and are tailored to a company’s specific needs and challenges.

Having spent more than 30 years working with adhesives and protective materials in high technology manufacturing, and with experience of thousands of applications, experts at Intertronics have a wealth of knowledge to share with customers.

The aim of the seminars is to share this insight, helping companies to fully understand the underlying technology of both their materials and dispensing equipment, enabling greater confidence and self-sufficiency moving forward. The seminars are delivered by Intertronics’ head of learning and development, Kevin Brownsill.

For example, Intertronics has recently run two seminars for more than 40 engineers at Jaguar Land Rover. The first, The Art and Science of Choosing a Structural Adhesive, looked at how to evaluate which adhesive is best for a given application, starting with design and working through production and processing considerations.

The second, Adhesives and Coating Dispensing, discussed the challenges involved in the application of adhesives and protective materials, including demands on production speed, the ever-finer tolerances and repeatability required for quality, and the increasing miniaturisation of technology-based products. The team has also run a tailored seminar for a medical device manufacturer in Ireland on UV and light curing technology.

“The seminars our staff received were extremely valuable,” said Malina Andreea Dunitru, process engineer at Jaguar Land Rover. “We wanted to give our engineers a strong foundational knowledge of adhesives and what considerations must be made in the automotive industry – that’s exactly what we got. I’ve had great feedback from our engineers, who are already putting the knowledge into practice.”

Training can be created at customer request, covering any of Intertronics’ core industries and capabilities, such as adhesives, coatings, or encapsulants, medical device bonding, dispensing automation, UV curing, surface preparation, productivity, and more.

“For us, it’s a win-win scenario,” said Brownsill. “By providing these seminars, our customers get to manufacture better products more efficiently, meanwhile we get the opportunity to learn from our customers too. It really serves to increase our mutual understanding of each other.”

Intertronics supplies adhesives, coatings, sealants and equipment to customers with high technology, high performance assembly applications, including manufacturers in electronics, medical devices, plastics, optical, automotive, energy, defence, and aerospace.
