IR4TD Director’s Message
The Painting Technology Workshop, initiated in 2000, is
sponsored by the Institute of Research for Technology Development (IR4TD). It is an annual event organized as a forum for technical presentations and critical discussions regarding common painting and coating technology problems in manufacturing industries.
Workshop participants include individuals from industry, academia, and government laboratories and agencies who are interested in solving painting/coating -related problems.
This workshop has dual aims:
- the exchange of information on the current and future painting and surface inspection technology, and
- the development of a network system that allows for mutually beneficial collaboration among users of painting technology, paint booth manufacturers, paint equipment manufacturers and paint product companies.
The dialogue generated at the Workshop has led to innovative solutions.
