“Vacuum and Plasmas for Industry”
 essential ingredients for manufacturing success

Wednesday 17th October 2012
Day One of the 3rd Vacuum Symposium to be held at
The Ricoh Arena Coventry

  • Many plasma and ion associated processes, require a vacuum environment before process gas is admitted. The degree or range of vacuum depends on the production process and often affects the resulting product.

  • Contamination and cleanliness are becoming more and more important issues within industrial processes to avoid rejects and ensure maximum yield.

  • This meeting will attempt to cover the wide spectrum of industries that require plasma and vacuum processing and the importance and requirements of vacuum for manufacturing success.

The industries that could benefit from this meeting include:
Automotive and Aeronautical Industries, Surface Coatings and Surface Engineering companies, the  Chemical Industry, Food, Medical and Textile suppliers, the Pharmaceutical and Semiconductor Industries, Surface Analysis Instrument suppliers and users, Heat Treatment Companies and Waste Disposal firms.

The speakers of a selected number of these topics will explain the importance of vacuum and or plasmas in their industry.
