State-of-the-art surface know-how


As a leading coater of rail vehicles, Microcapas has made a name for itself far beyond the Spanish Basque Country. For many years now the company has co-operated with Dörken MKS as a licensee – with this collaboration set to be expanded further in the future. Consequently, a delegation from Microcapas has now paid a visit to Herdecke.

Insights to coating processes and quality assurance

In addition to co-ordinating future projects, the employees of the Spanish licensee had the opportunity to find out about the latest surface coating technology. In the scope of a training session Tobias Kleyer, Head of the Corrosion College at Dörken MKS, explained aspects including test methods in the field of pre-treatment and coating of various components. In addition, the experts also provided helpful advice on the optimal planning and documentation of coating processes. Beyond this, the Microcapas team received an insight into quality development and the test laboratory. At the end of a busy day all agreed: it was a great experience with many new facts regarding high-quality surface protection.
