Editorial Content and Specials
Besides its regular editorial coverage, every issue of Galvanotechnik presents four special feature sections on: energy technologies, thin-film and plasma technologies, medical technology, and environmental technology. Each of these editorial sections specifically addresses the topic of coating and the demands of coating operators. The special section on energy technology is dedicated to energy efficiency for galvanic plants. It also explores the economic opportunities that Germany's sustainable energy policies are offering to coating operators. The special on thin-film and plasma technologies illuminates the pertinent topics connected with coating processes. The special on medical technology introduces you to the latest news and developments in coating processes for components used in medical equipment. This is complemented by conference reports from the medical field. The environmental section of Galvanotechnik looks at the environmental and workplace safety issues relevant to industrial coating operations. This includes technical innovations and basic information as well as legal considerations.
Specials on Surface Technology
In addition to the extensive core content featured Galvanotechnik offers a host of specific information. Some are included in the publication's regular subscription price, others are subject to a surcharge. They are designed to support you in your daily work practice. Among these are:
• Monthly update on the EU's REACh Directive. Galvanic operators that provide coating services are still unsure about the demands that this European legislation is placing on them. Also, an end to the industrial application of chromium(VI) appears to be imminent, and other substances which are used in coating processes (such as boric acid and others) are facing a similar fate. Our regular REACh column, written and edited by informed professionals, will alert you as a reader of Galvanotechnik about these issues to act timely and purposefully.
