European Pulse Plating Seminar
From fundamentals to industrial application

6th European Pulse Plating Seminar

The 6th European Pulse Plating Seminar took place in the historic Congress Casino Baden on the 7th of march 2014. As in the previous years we heard 15 comprehensive and cutting-edge presentations from leading experts on pulse plating. For the first time also two young colleagues had the chance to presentate the results of their PhD thesis as part of the fundamental section.

Aproximately 65 international participants joined the open disscusions about questions about realisation of the method in industrial production. The plenary lectures were supplemented by poster presentations of relevant equipment suppliers. In good tradition the seminar was followed by interesting discussions between particpants and lecturers at a typical Viennese restaurant.
