ECOAT Boot Camp Bundle


Industry experts have designed this interactive program to meet the varying needs of electrocoaters, and now you can experience it in video form! Speakers review the basics of electrocoating, paint and equipment before diving deeper into cost and process efficiencies, quality control, troubleshooting and innovative technology. Sessions include topics: such as pretreatment (zirconium, iron and zinc phosphate), equipment (ovens, ecoat tank, rectifiers, ultrafiltration), material handling, production efficiency and racking of product, process control and troubleshooting, testing and preventive maintenance. Learners will walk away with strategies and ideas for their system.
