CEO of SouthWest NanoTechnologies
(SWeNT) Dave Arthur will be speaking at the New England Nanomanufacturing
Summit 2010 about "The Commercialization of Carbon Nanotube Materials for
Coatings and Composites". Co-Founder of CHASM Technologies in Canton, MA
will be Speaking Wednesday, June 23, at University of Massachusetts Lowell Inn
and Conference Center.
Arthur is also co-founder of Canton based CHASM Technologies, which commercializes
and develops manufacturing processes for micro and nano-patterned thin films,
using scalable coating technologies. SouthWest NanoTechnologies’ application
development center is located within CHASM. SWeNT is the leader in high quality,
single-wall, and specialty multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs). SWeNT produces
carbon nanotubes using the patented CoMoCAT® catalytic method in fluidized
bed reactors. This results in selective synthesis of CNTs and remarkable control
of diameter, chirality and purity.
Arthur is scheduled to speak at 10:30 am on Wednesday, June 23. The Summit
runs from June 22-24 at the Inn & Conference Center at U. Mass Lowell. William
Hurley of CHASM Technologies will be also be speaking on Tuesday at 3:30 pm
on “R2R Coating and Printing of CNT Inks.” Hurley’s paper
will discuss the development of new CNT commercial inks with SouthWest NanoTechnologies.
The New England Nanomanufacturing Summit 2010 is a showcase for high-quality
technical contributions by scientists, experts, and businesses in the nanomanufacturing
field. This event will showcase topics such as emerging technologies, applications,
and fundamental research for academic institutions and industries in the Northeast.
SouthWest NanoTechnologies (SWeNT) is a privately-held specialty chemical
company that manufactures high quality single-wall and specialty multi-wall
carbon nanotubes, printable inks and CNT-coated fabrics for a range of products
and applications including energy-efficient lighting, affordable photovoltaics,
improved energy storage and printed electronics. SWeNT was created in 2001 to
spin off nanotube research developed at the University of Oklahoma.
