As metal components are increasingly replaced with high-performance plastics and environmental restrictions become stricter on metal finishing chemicals, automating the chemistry of coating and finishing baths is crucial for continued success. Process Analytical Technology (PAT) brings analytical measurements directly to the process for real-time decision-making. This ensures a high level of bath control and eliminates unnecessary risk to plant personnel.
Watch this virtual conversation where experts Bob Bodak, Director of Process Equipment & Engineering and Philip Deck, Ph.D., Regional Technology Platform Manager, both from BASF Chemetall, join Kraig Kmiotek, Process Analytics Product Specialist at Metrohm USA, as they discuss solutions to the challenges in process control of coating and finishing baths. Learn about real-world case studies and field-tested applications that demonstrate the advantages of optimized bath chemistry and PAT in the surface treatment industry.
