The Electrocoat Association and the Chemical Coaters Association International will co-host the 2012 Electrocoating Seminar Sept. 18-19 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare Hotel and Conference Center in Rosemont, Ill.
The event will kick off with an Introduction to Electrocoating to bring attendees up-to-speed on the technology before tackling more advanced topics in the remainder of the seminar. The discussion will center on efficiency, reducing production and non-production costs, and overall system effectiveness in the different areas of an electrocoating process. Presenters will move through an e-coat system to expose typical areas of energy, waste and cost savings per component while also discussing ways to maximize efficiency through racking, enhancements, retrofits and more. Troubleshooting for defects that could possibly plague a system will be explained and illustrated with actual examples available for handling.
Other planned events include a “real-world” plant tour to complement the classroom-style learning and an evening networking event.
