Latest knowledge in rail vehicle coating – compact and digital

At the digital conference on 17 June 2021, experts in industrial painting technology will present innovations in rail vehicle painting. The online presentations will be held in German and English and subtitled in the other language so that there are no language barriers.

The topics covered are wide-ranging: from the latest plant technology to antimicrobial coatings and graffiti removal to contract coating of rail vehicle components, everything is included:

  • The keynote of the online conference focuses on the exciting project of Deutsche Bahn, the Advanced TrainLab. On this innovation train, five paint manufacturers will be able to test optimized coating systems in practice, which they will also report on in a discussion round following the keynote.
  • Quality assurance and efficiency are then the core topics of the first series of lectures. Here, experts will report on the latest plant technology, provide information on coating from a life cycle perspective and show how simulations can be usefully integrated into the process. Contract coating of web components is also a topic in this conference block.
  • After the lunch break, the topic of innovative technologies will continue to be exciting. The presentation by Peter Boeijink of Xycrec, who will report on a coating technology developed for aircraft coating, offers a look beyond the end of one’s nose. A highly topical subject is antimicrobial coating. A novel technology that is also suitable for train interiors will be presented in one of the technical lectures.
  • But the conference also takes up the perennial topic of graffiti removal, naturally with a view to new approaches. The day concludes with the finishing touches to the paint job – drying. How 5 wagons per day are no longer a problem will be explained at ECOLROMAT 2021 digital, too.
