Galvanized Products for Automotive Production

Practical Training


This three-day customizable course provides a detailed insight into the process-technological aspects of the production of galvanized products (coils). The main focus is on surface quality, root causes, and requirements for automotive exposed production. The training venue is typically near the customer's plant in order to ensure joint plant observation and take into account the actual plant situation, and to be able to carry out valuable production analyses and make appropriate recommendations.

Emphasis is placed on the influence of incoming material, process parameters, and operational practice on product quality.

Basic information about management, organization, maintenance, and production planning is explained, insofar as it influences product quality.
