FABTECH returns to the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-10 with a one-stop-shop to meet suppliers, see the latest technologies, learn how to increase profits, and discover tools to improve productivity while networking with industry peers. 

The FABTECH 2022 exhibition floor will showcase the newest innovations the finishing industry has to offer, from liquid and powder coatings to pretreatment technologies, auxiliary equipment, and more. “CCAI is hosting its 13th finishing pavilion at FABTECH in November,” states Anne Goyer, CCAI Executive Director. “The growth of the pavilion and conference program for those interested in finishing allows attendees to see the latest in industrial finishing technology alongside valuable educational sessions. FABTECH is the place where industrial finishers gather every fall.”

FABTECH’s educational programming offers the perfect opportunity to learn more about the technologies you see on the show floor. The finishing conference program features 19 sessions, comprised of nearly 40 presentations, offering a wide range of technical education – from basic to advanced – on topics for everyone involved in finishing technologies. CCAI has created a program that encompasses a variety of segments, including pretreatment, masking and racking, powder and liquid coating, troubleshooting, curing and ovens, and measurement and testing equipment to name a few. Within the 90-minute sessions, attendees will learn about advancements and new technologies that touch many aspects of the finishing industry.

FABTECH 2022 will mark the fifth edition of CCAI’s fab to finish production experience. Providing show attendees the opportunity to see a part produced from fabrication to finishing, fab to finish participants are able to experience each production step first-hand. Attendees pick up a laser-cut souvenir part and a production route card from fabrication partner, Mazak, in booth B7541. The production route card takes participants to CCAI corporate member exhibitors in the finishing pavilion for the pretreatment, powder coating, and curing processes. Participants are able to try their hand at powder coating their own part – a program favorite.

Since its inception in 2017, the fab to finish production experience has expanded, adding selective plating at FABTECH 2021. This year, paint stripping will be included in the program, providing more opportunity to educate show attendees on a variety of finishing-related processes.
