Innovative Surfaces - Annual Event 2022

Unique format and sharing of expertise

  • NTN members present latest technologies at roundtables
  • Discussion of success factors, Q&A
  • State of the art & the latest from industrial applications
  • Time for networking: Foyer exhibition

Novel and optimized functional materials are the driving force behind all technological progress.
To meet the shortened development times in a global environment, new processes for more efficient material and coating development must be researched and tested. High-throughput processes are a successful example of this.
