Henkel Announces Loctite® Medical Device Adhesive Training Workshops for June 2010

Henkel Corporation has announced new dates for Loctite® Medical Device Adhesive Training Workshops during 2010.  These comprehensive programs address topics specifically related to the design and assembly of medical devices, including proper joint design for adhesive assembly, selecting the appropriate adhesive technology, and processing-equipment requirements.

Loctite® Medical Training Workshops are scheduled for Wednesday, June 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at The Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois; and on Tuesday, June 22, from 8:00 to 11:30 a.m. at the Doubletree Hotel in San Diego, California.  Both events will feature information on new Loctite® ISO 10993 biocompatible light cure silicone and cyanoacrylate adhesives, and the latest in LED curing.

Design, product and manufacturing engineers who attend Loctite® Medical Device Adhesive Training Workshops benefit from intensive educational information and hands-on demonstrations of adhesives and equipment.  Engineers walk out with a solid knowledge of adhesives and understand how to automate manual processes, improve profitability/process efficiency, decrease costs, improve product quality/reliability, and reduce process cycle times and work-in-progress.
