European Pulse Plating Seminar
From fundamentals to industrial application

1st European Pulse Plating Seminar

The first European Pulse Plating Seminar took place on the 10th of March in Vienna. Main focus was the method and its industrial application. With more than 80 participants coming from 13 European countries, the conference can be considered a full success. Therefore, the European Pulse Plating Seminar will take place 2007 in an extended form again.

10 international presentations of leading experts on pulse plating formed the framework of the conference:
