DES MOINES, Iowa - The Electrocoat Association and the Chemical Coaters Association International announced that the 2016 Electrocoating Seminar is scheduled for October 4-5 at the Embassy Suites Des Moines Downtown Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa.

An Introduction to Electrocoating kicks off the first day of the classroom-style program. The discussion will center on cost and process efficiencies, quality control, and innovative technologies in the different components of a typical electrocoating line. Preventive maintenance and troubleshooting for defects that can plague a system will also be addressed and illustrated with actual examples.

An evening networking event at the conclusion of the first day provides attendees an opportunity to meet the presenters and ask questions specific to their company’s needs as well as interact with other attendees and potential partners.

This year’s event will conclude with a plant tour of the John Deere Des Moines Works, Ankeny, Iowa. The facility’s cathodic electrocoat system has been in operation since 1980 and will offer a real-world illustration of the technical material presented.

Registration includes the educational program, networking reception, group lunches and breaks, transportation to and from the plant tour, and a copy of The Electrocoat Association’s textbook, “Electrocoating: A Guidebook for Finishers.”
