Ohio Companies Host Cleveland Coatings Event: The "Big 10-4"
Cleveland, OHCleveland, a long-time hub
of activity in the paint and coatings field will play host to a
one-day regional coatings event that's being dubbed "The
Big 10-4" since it's being held on October 4th, 2005.
Eighteen finishing industry suppliers have signed on as sponsors
and will offer technical presentations on a wide range of paint-related
topics including; powder coating, liquid paints, UV curing, plasma
pretreatment, robotics, automation, web based control and a number
of other subjects.
"We wanted to create an event that people could drive to,
and that was very inexpensive. They will get great information
on some of the latest paint related topics from companies doing
business in our area" said event organizer Paul Mills.
The event being hosted at the Quality Inn and Suites in Middleburg
Heights will feature two concurrent sessions totaling eighteen
papers. Attendees will also be treated to a hands-on laboratory
visit where a wide range of equipment will be demonstrated. The
lab session will be held in the Artomation applications laboratory
located only minutes from the conference site. Luxury coach transportation
to the nearby Artomation coatings laboratory will be provided to
"Our laboratory will allow attendees to see some of the
technology in action that will be presented in the technical sessions" said
Artomation president John McDonough. "We have powder and
liquid booths, robots, UV lamps and a number of other equipment
demonstrations ready," McDonough added.
The list of companies involved in the conference and lab session
include: AP Conveyor, Fanuc Robotics, Q-Panel, BYK Gardner, Nordson
powder and liquid systems, UV Robotics, Magic Rack, PlasmaTreat
North America, Phoseon Technology, Control Systems Group, Kalcor
Coatings, and Chemical Methods, Inc., Artomation, IST UV, Sherwin
Williams, Dupont Powder Coatings, and Decorative Veneer UV.
A web site detailing the event including registration information
has been setup at www.clevelandcoatings.com
"Larger, national finishing shows have their role in providing
a place for large exhibitions and multi-day programs" says
Mills "but many of the sponsors and the attendees like the
idea of a conference that features local suppliers and doesn't
require the same investment of time and money to attend. Fortunately
for us, there aren't many cities in the country besides Cleveland
where you can find the number and quality of paint and equipment
manufacturers so nearby."
The venue was selected because it's easy to get to, (located
just minutes from Cleveland Hopkins airport, the Ohio Turnpike
Exit 161 and Interstate 71) and only a two-minute bus trip to the
Artomation coatings laboratory.
