The Electrocoat Association and the Chemical Coaters Association International are holding the 2016 Electrocoating Seminar on October 4-5 at the Embassy Suites Des Moines Downtown Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa. 

An Introduction to Electrocoating kicks off day one of the classroom-style program to bring attendees up to speed with the technology before tackling more advanced topics in the remainder of the seminar. The discussion will center on cost and process efficiencies, quality control, and innovative technologies in the different components of a typical electrocoating line. Preventive maintenance and troubleshooting for defects that can plague a system will also be addressed and illustrated with actual examples. 

An evening networking event at the conclusion of day one provides attendees an opportunity to meet the presenters and ask questions specific to their company’s needs as well as interact with other attendees and potential partners.  

This year’s event will conclude with a plant tour of the John Deere Des Moines Works, Ankeny, Iowa.  The facility’s cathodic electrocoat system has been in operation since 1980 and will offer a real-world illustration of the technical material presented.  

Registration includes the educational program, networking reception, group lunches and breaks, transportation to/from the plant tour, and a copy of the Electrocoat Association’s textbook, “Electrocoating: A Guidebook for Finishers”.
