Surface Plating and Protection Technology

Date : 19 to 20 April, 2021

Time : 1330 Hrs to 1630 Hrs


In today’s manufacturing scenario, shortage of raw material & power, meeting quality with consistency in quality norms and increasing pressure to reduce costs are the order of the day. Besides these business challenges, surface finish, an important manufacturing process contributes significantly to the costs. During finishing of parts, Surface plating techniques such as ‘Electroplating, application’ is possibly the most troubled issue. Lack of knowledge in Surface plating and protection technology leads to high rework and rejection rates in-house & as well as from outside vendors. Hence it is important to follow the right techniques to achieve surface finish of acceptable quality.

Future of Indian Industry appears bright, and the demand for INDIAN products is expected to grow exponentially. To grab global opportunities, better quality will be the key. Hence this training program is aimed at educating and upgrading the existing workforce on latest plating techniques, which is going to be the need of the hour.

Keeping this in view, IMTMA is organising an online training on Surface Plating and Protection Technology.
