Defects Analysis of Paint & Powder Coating Applications

Date : 27 to 28 January, 2020

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


In today’s manufacturing scenario, where shortage of raw material, power & increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day, ‘Painting / Coating application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. While we are nearly at par with global standards in metal working, we definitely lack in finishing and Powder Coating Applications operations. The stark difference is visible when it comes to exporting our goods. Lack of knowledge in Defect Analysis especially in painting / powder coating and Buck passing between paint or powder suppliers vs equipment suppliers lead to high rework and rejection rates.
Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a 2 day programme on Defects Analysis of Paint & Powder Coating Applications on 27 - 28 January 2020 at Pune.
