Latest Science and Technology in Surface Finishing at Sur/Fin
The Sur/Fin technical program features 83 presentations, including an automotive OEM panel discussion, offering attendees 42 hours of exposure to new and existing technology and access to the industry experts who are presenting.
Leaders in all facets of manufacturing will be on hand at the National Association for Surface Finishing’s Sur/Fin Manufacturing and Technology Trade Show and Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, June 4-6, to hear about the latest technology and science in the world of surface finishing.
The technical program features 83 presentations, including an automotive OEM panel discussion, offering attendees 42 hours of exposure to new and existing technology, and perhaps more important, access to the industry experts who are presenting.
“The opportunities for interaction are valuable for those looking to educate themselves on the latest trends in finishing or to assist in solving particular problems,” says Brad Durkin, chair of the NASF Technology Advisory Committee, which develops the technical tracks for Sur/Fin.
This year’s Automotive track kicks off with Session 1, “Performance Solutions Impacting Today and the Future.” The Advances in Surface Finishing (ASF) track always provides much information to attendees regarding new technology has defined an entire focus track on hard chromium developments, starting with Session 2, “Functional Chromium Technology.” Aerospace and Defense Session 7, “A&D Innovating Performance Advancements” covers topics including brush plating, ionic liquids, surface finishing for additively manufactured parts, coatings and alloys for durable turbine engines, and anti-erosion. Fabrication of parts from low-weight materials continues to grow, and Session 5, “Light Materials Treatments Optimizing Performance,” includes topics on processing titanium, magnesium and aluminum anodizing cast alloys and more.
