NASF Online Course: Chromium Plating for Engineering Applications
Registration for this Chromium Plating for Engineering Applications Web Based Course is April 20, 2021.
NASF/AESF has announced new dates for its web-based Chromium Plating for Engineering Applications course. The course will run throughout July on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Noon – 2 p.m. EST.
Webinar Dates: July 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28
Registration Deadline: June 22, 2021
The course will cover:
- Chemistry for Hard Chromium Platers
- Electricity for Hard Chromium Platers
- Electrochemistry for Hard Chromium Platers
- Equipment for Hard Chromium Plating
- Masking Techniques
- Mechanical Surface Preparation
- Chemical Surface Preparation
- Basic Chromium Plating Principles
- Analysis & Control of Chromium Plating Solutions
- Troubleshooting & Purification of Chromium Plating Solutions
NASF’s Web-Based training program is beneficial for operators and supervisors of job shop and captive shops performing hard chromium plating operations on a variety of substrates. The course is also beneficial to sales personnel who work for suppliers of hard chromium and equipment.
The goal of this course is for students to have a basic understanding of chemical and electrical principles as they relate to hard chromium plating and be able to apply Faraday’s law in calculating the time required to obtain a target thickness of chromium plate. NASF says that at the conclusion of the course students will know the basics of the chromium plating process, including equipment, operational conditions and the role of impurities.
