A story about the event appears on the website of local TV station Fox 11:


BRILLION - The state reports 10 percent fewer manufacturing jobs than a decade ago. On Friday, a handful of area companies took a step to try to encourage high school students to pursue careers in manufacturing.


More than 150 students learned what it's like to work at Professional Plating, in Brillion, Friday.


"We're working with customers like Airens, John Deer, Harley-Davidson to zinc plate to e-coat to powder coat. They do the welding, the punching the stamping. Our manufacturing connection is we plate to meet standards. We make it look pretty with the color," said Larry Dietz, general manager of Professional Plating.

  • Anodizing for Bonding Applications in Aerospace

    Anodizing for pre-prep bonding bridges the gap between the metallic and composite worlds, as it provides a superior surface in many applications on aluminum components for bonding to these composites.

  • Aluminum Surface Finishing Corrosion Causes and Troubleshooting

    In this paper, a review of several process solutions, examining coolants, solvent cleaning, alkaline clean/etch and deoxidizing/desmutting, listing intended and unintended chemical reactions along with possible mechanisms that would favor corrosion formation.

  • 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.
