The Chicago Midwest Chapter of the National Association for Surface Finishing is partnering with chapters in Rockford and Milwaukee to host the Midwest Sustainability Summit on October 12-13, at the Grand Geneva Resort and Spa in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.

“The informational sessions are focused on modern technology for surface finishing,” says Precision Plating's Becky Bennett, who is part of the organizing committee for the event. “The topics are centered around technology talks.”

The event kicks off with a lunch on Thursday, October 12, followed by afternoon presentations and a dinner. It culminates on Friday with a breakfast and morning presentations.

Tentatively scheduled speakers are from Serfilco, KCH, Products Finishing, Gannon and Scott, Fredr Kraft Powercon, the Policy Group, Epner Technologies, Eclipse Tools North America, MacDermid Enthone and Advizor Solutions. Organizers also are trying to line up speakers who can address topics such as obtaining grant money for installation of equipment that supports energy conservation, workforce development, strategic planning and continuous improvement.

  • Chromium-free Etching and Palladium-free Plating of Plastics

    Plastics are replacing metals in the manufacture of many parts, and quite often there is a need for metallic coatings on the plastics and other non-conductors. This paper will describe new processes of preparing ABS plastic substrates for subsequent metallization.

  • Deoxidizing Aluminum as a Pretreatment

    This important first step can help prepare the metal for subsequent surface finishing.

  • Test Methods For Evaluating Anodized Aluminum

    Benefits of anodizing include durability, color stability, ease of maintenance, aesthetics, cost of initial finish and the fact that it is a safe and healthy process. Maximizing these benefits to produce a high–performance aluminum finish can be accomplished by incorporating test procedures in the manufacturing process.
