European Pulse Plating Seminar
From fundamentals to industrial application

3rd European Pulse Plating Seminar

The European Pulse-Plating Seminar on the 7th March 2008 in the Parkhotel Schönbrunn / Vienna was also in its third year as successful as in the previous years. Approximately 60 participants joined a very open discussion in a very relaxed atmosphere about questions regarding the industrial application of pulse plating. This year again, participants from numerous European countries and also from the USA and Korea attended the seminar. So the European Pulse Plating Seminar is considerably established within and also outside the borders of Europe.

Caused by the exciting discussions, the time frame of the seminar was overrun, so that by common decision the chance was taken to keep on talking in a more informal surrounding at a typical Viennese Heurigen.

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

Plenary lectures
