The first half of the workshop explains manufacturing processes and metal finishing, followed by how to recognize and troubleshoot anomalies that may manifest through the processes discussed. The second half of the workshop offers a series of interactive “Troubleshooting Stations” where process experts will host small groups to discuss various individual problems, building on the principles presented in the first half of the workshop. 

*Feel free to bring in your own small pieces of anodized aluminum that you are having a problem with and the group can help you figure out a solution.
