The NCCA Fall Educational Seminar will be presented by Ed Traczyk, who gave an informative presentation on coil line engineering at the 2019 fall meeting. This seminar will cover the process portion of coil line engineering to include an overview of strip joining, cleaning, pretreatment, dryers, coaters, oven systems, and quenches. As engineering and proposal manager at Double Globus, Traczyk brings over 30 years of experience in designing, engineering, and specifying equipment and process lines throughout the world.
The seminar is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 20, and will be helpful for anyone in the coil coating industry but is particularly targeted towards plant operation, engineering, and maintenance personnel.
