With manufacturing relying increasingly on high performance adhesives and protective materials, Intertronics is welcoming visitors to its rebuilt Technology Centre at the company’s Kidlington, Oxfordshire, UK, head office.
Over the years, Intertronics says the Centre has hosted hundreds of customers to discuss their specific assembly and bonding needs – or simply to explore new possibilities. It explains that the rebuilt Centre – three times the size of the former facility – is custom-designed for demonstrations and trials of materials, dispensing technologies (including robots), curing devices and other equipment. Hands-on knowledge transfer is aided by the fully-equipped lab and meeting area with AV and presentation facilities. Small-scale seminars can also be accommodated.
