Capacity vs Agility

Last summer, my neighbor loaded up his RV for a two-week long family vacation. They were going out West to see the great national parks. I couldn’t help but think, though, that I would rather have my other neighbor’s speedy roadster when driving through the twisting mountain passes. It seems you give up agility and […]

Capacity in two flavors

I have been asked a number of times how much available capacity we have. Here’s my usual answer: I have yet to see a customer’s capacity need that we couldn’t handle! Part of that ability is due to E-BEAM’s commitment to stay ahead of the demand curve by adding capacity (by upgrading our current facilities, […]

How Does The Electron Beam Crosslinking Process Work?

What if you had a tool you could use to improve your existing plastic or polymer product? Or a tool that enables you to create a new specialty product? What if that tool could improve the temperature rating of your product or improve its chemical resistance or give it the low-temperature impact resistance your need? […]

How can I lower the cost per foot when processing reel-to-reel products?

  Part 1: Why more material on a reel will result in a lower cost Sometimes more is better. More vacation days, more good weather, and, in my personal opinion, you can’t go wrong with more bacon cheesefries. The same principal also applies to the amount of material on a reel sent to us for […]

Do I have to build a certain pallet load for the e-beam process?

  The quick answer is NO!Unlike other sterilization methods, such as EtO and gamma, the e-beam process unloads pallets and places cases of product onto conveyer carts in a single layer.

How does an electron beam accelerator work?

There are several different methods to accelerate electrons to form a beam. The accelerators used by E-BEAM Services are direct current, which provide a continuous versus a pulsed beam. As an example, our accelerators operate in the same way as a traditional cathode ray television set.

How do I know if my health care product is compatible with e-beam radiation?

Often, the first step in the qualification process is to determine the compatibility of your product with e-beam radiation. Some materials can experience a change in their properties with e-beam, so it is important to ensure the stability of your material and packaging at the beginning of the qualification process. Some initial guidance can be […]
