Es freut uns, Sie ganz herzlich zum 7. Europäischen Pulse Plating Seminar einladen zu dürfen!

Durch die großen Erfolge in der Vergangenheit konnte das Pulse Plating Seminar weiter wachsen und wird 2016 in Kooperation mit der EAST erstmals im Rahmen einer zweitägigen Veranstaltung stattfinden – am 3. und 4. März 2016 im Congress Casino Baden (bei Wien).

We are pleased to invite you to the 7th European Pulse Plating Seminar!

After the great success in the past will the Pulse Plating Seminar in cooperation with the EAST for the first time be part of a two-day event – on the 3rd and 4th of March 2016 at the Congress Casino Baden.

Congress Casino Baden

Am 4. März liegt der Schwerpunkt wie gewohnt auf der Technologie der Pulsabscheidung und wir konnten erneut die führenden Experten aus diesem Gebiet als Vortragende gewinnen. Der Themenbereich des EAST Forums am 3. März ist dagegen offener und bietet einen Einblick in die neuesten Entwicklungen auf dem Gebiet der elektrochemischen Oberflächentechnik.

Zusammen ergibt sich eine umfassende Konferenz auf dem Gebiet der modernen elektrochemischen Galvanotechnik.

Sie haben auch wieder die Möglichkeit, sich über die neuesten Entwicklungen auf dem Gebiet der Gleichrichtertechnik und der industriellen Implementierung von Pulse Plating zu informieren. Durch ausgedehnte Diskussionsmöglichkeiten mit den einzelnen Vortragenden stellen wir sicher, dass Sie kompetente Antworten auf die für Sie relevanten Fragen erhalten.

Selbstverständlich wird es wieder ein vom Veranstalter gesponsertes Konferenzdinner geben, welches am 3. März in einem traditionellen österreichischen Restaurant stattfinden wird.

On the 4th of March the focus will lie on the technology of pulse deposition and we were again able to win the leading experts on this field as plenary speakers. The range of topics for the EAST Forum, which will be held on the 3rd of March, is more open on topics on surface related electrochemistry.

The two conferences will be combined and add up to a comprehensive event on modern electrochemical surface finishing!

Information about rectifier techology and industrial application of pulse plating will complete the conference. Due to the extensive possibilities for discussion it will be ensured that competent answers to all open questions will be given.

There will be a conference dinner on the 3rd of March in a typical Austrian restaurant that will be covered by the organiser.
