SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts (ASC), a world leading supplier of selective plating technology and solutions, will be showcasing the versatility of the SIFCO Process® at the Electronic Apparatus Service Association (EASA) convention and exhibition 2014.
The EASA convention, which takes place at the Hynes Convention Centre in Boston, Massachusetts, US, from 29 June to 1 July, is an annual event that provides professionals from the electric motor repair industry the chance to upskill in their field of expertise.
It covers areas such as repairing motors and pumps, managing business, and finding ways to improve customer service.
Selective plating plays a vital role in the electric motor repair industry due to the significant time and cost savings it can offer in extending maintenance intervals and service life.
End bells, which house the bearings that support both ends of a motor shaft, often suffer from fretting corrosion during operation. The SIFCO Process® is used to plate the bores to size with copper, tin or nickel, and can take less time than alternative methods such as the sleeving of thermal spray processes.
The SIFCO Process® is also used in many other industrial applications where surfaces need to be protected, repaired or refurbished.
SIFCO ASC group managing director Lee Shelton said: "We are really looking forward to exhibiting at EASA this year and building rapport further afield, as well as educating people on the key benefits of selective plating in the electric motor repair industry."
