Event Recap: Surface Finishing Conference (Sur/Fin) 2011

There is something about face to face conversations.

The National Association of Surface Finishing (NASF) recently held its yearly Sur/Fin conference in Rosemont, IL.  Eastern Applied Research was pleased to be an exhibitor as we had many interesting conversations (face to face ones) throughout the event.

With a large number of our clients being involved in metal finishing, and based in the MidWest, this was an excellent event for catching up with current clients that attended Sur/Fin.  This face-to-face time was beneficial in keeping up to date with current service customers and showing them, many of whom utilize older XRF technologies, the newest x-ray fluorescence for coating thickness measurements – the Element Xr line.

Demonstrations of the Element Xr line were performed on a prototype of system that will provide another top solution in coating thickness analysis.  In addition, the Eastern Applied associates at the booth were able to discuss our “conti-systems” which allow for faster through-put right on the production floor.

All in all, an excellent exhibition…we look forward to speaking with any attendees again in the near future.
