The International Thermal Spray Conference Exposition (ITSC) 2009 will cover a wide variety of topics under this year’s theme, “Expanding Thermal Spray Performance to New Markets and Applications.” The conference will be held May 4–7 at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. ITSC is organized by ASM Thermal Spray Society (TSS), an affiliate society of ASM International; the German Welding Society (DVS); and the International Institute of Welding (IIW).
Presentations will focus on the advantages of using thermal spray technology for new applications. High velocity flame spraying requirements for land gear applications and thermal spray coating applications and the state of job shops in Japan will be some of the topics discussed. Several presenters will cover trends, markets, and opportunities in countries such as China, Korea, India, and Europe.
Short courses are scheduled to provide in-depth education experience to those new to thermal spray. The courses start as early as April 30. Details are available on the ITSC registration site.
The ITSC Exposition will be held May 4–6. A large gathering of companies will display their equipment, materials, products, and services for the thermal spray community. Those interested in exhibiting should contact Kelly Thomas at Kelly.Thomas@asminternational.org.
