Dörken Days China 2016






Dörken Days China 2016


The Dörken Days China 2016 took place at the Shanghai Marriott Hotel Parkview from 23 to 24 May 2016.

The invitation was taken up by 125 representatives from 66 companies and organisations - including 11 local and international car manufacturers and 42 companies from the supplier industry. The majority of guests came from China, but also from Taiwan.

The series of presentations was opened by Dr. Martin Welp and Onnen von Bredow with figures on global market development and new changes in the product range. Andrej von Hofman provided an update on Dörken MKS-Systems (Shanghai) and detailed the market trends in China, taking into consideration the 13th five year plan of the Chinese government.

Alongside the technical key speeches on the themes of "high performer basecoat DELTA-PROTEKT® KL 120 incl. specifications" and "Dörken top coats for special requirements" there were also presentations of practice-relevant findings from corrosion tests and practical instructions for avoiding defects whilst coating. In this the local team headed by Gary Lu was supported by Hendrik Narjes from HQ.
One particular highlight of the event was the paper of guest speaker Huang Ping, Head of the Surface Treatment Department of Changan Motors and principal organiser of the Society of Automotive Engineers of China. He spoke on local OEM specifications and the activities of his association.

Lunch was followed by presentations from plant engineering firms WMV Apparatebau GmbH, Ernst Reinhard GmbH and Wagner Spraytech (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. as well as the coating company SIDASA Engineering.

Alongside the conference programme there was naturally also time to exchange experiences and network with one another. The Dörken MKS team was highly satisfied with the positive response to the thoroughly successful event.
