EDITOR'S MEMO: Dispensing Details

We’ve got dispensing on the brain this month, as the June issue includes our annual Dispensing and Curing Equipment Directory. The handy chart-style directory includes supplier companies* and accompanying contact information for dispensing equipment like dispensers, pumps, mixers, and dispense heads. Details on filling and curing equipment are also included.

Complementary editorial in this issue discusses automated dispensing options for medical applications (see “Dispensing Automation”) and the benefits of an endless piston dispenser (see “Precision Dosing”). We also cover coatings in this issue with an article that details cool roof coatings. Read “Keep Your Cool” to find out how acrylic elastomeric roof coatings help reduce global carbon emissions and slow climate change.

Thanks for a Great Tech ManufactureXPO!

The inaugural Tech ManufactureXPO was held last month, and more than 600 attendees visited the free event from the comfort of their own computers. Hosted by ASI, Assembly, CircuiTree, Quality and World Trade magazines, the virtual event featured 29 exhibitor booths, as well as multiple webinars, Ask the Experts sessions, podcasts, networking opportunities and more.

Attendees were very receptive and enthusiastic, with over 95% of survey respondents indicating that they would recommend the event to others. One attendee in particular provided feedback that I’d like to share with you: “Thanks to you and your colleagues for the fantastic experience at the Tech ManufactureXPO. Over 25 years I have attended or exhibited at many trade shows in many sectors around the world. I never thought that there could be a virtual equivalent to a physical show. I spent a little over an hour on your show and made a good number of contacts and had some very interesting discussions. I also learned a lot in a very short amount of time. The content, quality of exhibitors and the mechanics of navigating the show were excellent. It was well worth my time.”

If you’d like to exhibit or otherwise participate in next year’s Tech ManufactureXPO, please contact our publisher, Amy Vallance, at or (281) 550-5855.
