Mass Finishing Workshops - November 15, 2018 & March 2019 (TBA)

Bel Air announces the opportunity for you to learn everything from A to Z about mass finishing techniques and equipment. This all-day event is designed to show you how to achieve maximum utilization from your current finishing equipment, as well as the benefits and capabilities of other types of finishing equipment. You will also learn the latest process technologies.

Individuals attending this seminar will return home equipped to save time and money in the mass finishing process. Steve Alviti, president of Bel Air, has spoken to relatively large groups in the past as he participated in seminars here in America and overseas. This event is scheduled to cover the entire day, with a luncheon provided between the morning and afternoon sessions.

- Special Edition: May 10, 2018 & November 15, 2018: 3D Post Processing

Surface finishing of Additive Manufactured parts, otherwise known as 3D printed parts is a challenge for all manufacturers who are using or are contemplating the use of thing technology. This presentation will introduce you to the degree of finishes that are achieveable for both metal and plastic parts. Surface finishing, coating and metrology will also be presented.

In-House Vibratory / Mass Finishing Vibratory Workshops

Bel Air can hold a workshop at your facility that is specifically tailored to your requirements. A detailed plan can be developed based on your needs, equipment, parts and specific problems and challenges you are having with your processing. If your staff just needs to know the basics, a one day program can consist of all the subjects contained above at a nominal cost.

While there, Bel Air staff can evaluate your current equipment and parts processing, including cleaning and drying and can make recommendations on the proper equipment and supllies required to get the job done in the most cost-effective and time sensitive way possible.

The seminar was fantastic. I can't tell you how beneficial it is to have a classroom and lab session. It was a great trip... probably one of the best seminars I've attended!
