Exhibitor spotlight - MoistTech Corp
Ceramics Expo caught up with John Fordham, Director at MoistTech Corp to give us the inside look at MoistTech Corp plans for the future.
John’s history in the ceramics industry began in the late 1970s with the development of the NIR (near-infrared) online moisture sensor. This technology has opened many doors into ceramics product quality control by measuring the moisture content instantly online with great accuracy. Several generations of sensors have allowed for John to visit many of the industry leaders and help them monitor product quality.
