12 SEPTEMBER 2018 — ences will be presented, as well as an in-depth look at line conversion from hexavalent to trivalent chrome. A cost analysis of waste-treatment savings also will be presented, followed by a brief case study. The presentation is suited for plant managers, purchasers, lab techni- cians, engineers and line operators who are interested in understanding the performance characteristics of trivalent chromium. There will be step-by-step details on the process of converting a line and learning about gains in process and production efficiency, im- provements in employee safety, decreased number of rejects, and substantial savings in waste-treatment costs.

The webinar will be presented by Mark Schario, Colum- bia Chemical's executive vice president of global business development, and Products Finishing Editor Tim Pennington will moderate. It will include information on switching from hexavalent to trivalent, and will allow participants to ask spe- cific questions of Schario. "As the legislation regarding the use of hexavalent chromium expands, the pressure to make the switch to trivalent chromium plating increases," Schario says. "This presentation will look at the regulations in place on the use of hexavalent chromium and discuss the automotive and OEM requirements and timeframe for changing over to trivalent chromium." An overview and comparison of the general process differ- Mark Schario Webinar Discusses Switch from Hexavalent to Trivalent NEWS Parts2clean Show Addresses Trends Impacting Parts Cleaning Lightweight construction, changing manufacturing and coat- ing technologies, and new materials and material combina- tions. These trends are putting pressure on manufacturers to clean parts and surfaces to meet ever-higher standards. The parts2clean show October 23–25 in Stuttgart, Germany, aims to help manufacturers and finishers solve some of the issues associated with those trends. "The solutions on offer from exhibitors at this year's parts2clean are designed to not only meet current standards for the cleanliness of parts and components, but also even more stringent requirements coming up in the future—and that with consistently reliable results, and at affordable cost," says Olaf Daebler, global director for the show at Deutsche Messe. But the products and services showcased by exhibitors at the international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning are not the only reason parts2clean is a must for cleaning technology users from every branch of industry, he says. The show's supporting program also offers a wealth of know-how and added value. Among those supporting events are the bilingual Industry Forum and the associated Innovations and QSRein 4.0 Forum, as well as a special presentation on "Process Flow in Parts Cleaning, Including Cleanliness Checks," one on QSRein 4.0 and another on the role of automation in parts cleaning. The presentation on process flow, staged in conjunction with the Cleaning Excellence Center, will provide live coverage of deburring of workpieces, cleaning in a clean room environ- ment and the contamination-free transfer of parts to a Class ISO 7-compliant clean room using a clean-room-compatible transfer cart. Industrial cleaning specialists will be giving visi- tors guided tours on all three days of the show. Visit NASF Palmetto Southeast Chapter Technical Conference Announces Speakers
