Do you want to learn more about methods of applying paint to parts or assembled products using an electrical current? The 2016 Electrocoating Seminar, hosted by the Electrocoat Association and Chemical Coaters Association International, is set for October 4-5 at the Embassy Suites Des Moines Downtown Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa.

Once a part or product is electrocoated, a baking or curing process crosslinks the polymer and allows the coating to flow out and become smooth and continuous.

The first day of the classroom-style event begins with an introduction to electrocoating to familiarize attendees with the technology. The session will cover cost and process efficiencies, quality control and technologies in the different components of a typical electrocoating line. Preventive maintenance and troubleshooting for defects that can plague a system will also be discussed.

The seminar will include an evening networking event to provide attendees the opportunity to meet presenters as well as a plant tour of the John Deere Des Moines Works, which has a cathodic electrocoat system that has been in operation for more than 35 years.
