SIFCO ASC to showcase selective plating capability at Power-Gen Europe

A range of innovative surface treatments which combat the operational and maintenance challenges faced by the power generation industry will be showcased by the global leader in selective plating technology and solutions, SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts (ASC) at this year’s POWER-GEN Europe exhibition, 3-5 June 2014.

SIFCO ASC will be sharing stand 6V46 with sister Norman Hay Plc company Surface Technology, a leader in the development and application of high performance surface treatments.

Originator of the renowned SIFCO Process® for electroplating localised areas on components without the use of an immersion tank, SIFCO ASC is approved by many of the world’s leading players in the power generation industry, including Siemens, Alstom, Rolls Royce and Westinghouse.

The company will be showcasing the flexibility and portability of the SIFCO Process® for selective plating and the vital role it can play in the manufacturing industry to improve component performance, minimise downtime and reduce manufacturing costs.

Typical power generation industry applications for the SIFCO Process® include bus bars, gas turbine components, generators, nuclear components and the in-situ repair of windmill bearing journals and slip rings – eliminating the major delays associated with disassembly and offsite repair and significantly reducing downtime.

Now a well-established event in the European and International power diary, POWER-GEN Europe returns to Cologne, Germany for its 22nd staging alongside Renewable Energy World Europe, with the theme of ‘Navigating the Power Transition’.

The combined events will feature top international power industry companies from across the conventional and renewable sectors, demonstrating state of the art services and technologies covering every aspect of electrical power generation.

Mark Smith, European General Manager for SIFCO ASC, comments: “POWER-GEN Europe is a prestigious event within the sector and we are looking forward to showcasing our unique surface enhancement technologies and services for both OEM components and parts requiring refurbishment and repair. With more than 50 years of experience, we can offer our customers world class capabilities and application development support, no matter where they are located, backed by the global expertise of the Norman Hay group.”
