Welcome to east

The European Academy of Surface Technology (east) is a non-profit organisation which represents an International Platform for Science and Technology and an Interface between Research and Application in all Areas of Surface Technology.


 

The overall objective of east is the Europe-wide promotion of science, research, training and education in the fields of surface technology and related areas. The basis for the accomplishment of these tasks is the European Board of east, where nearly each European State is represented by leading specialists in surface technology. For realisation of projects of an European dimension in the area of education, further training and research, east closely co-operates with the institutions of the European Commission.

Guidelines for setting the useful range of Pulse Plating parameters

8th European Pulse Plating Seminar, 2 March 2018, Vienna, Austria


 

The European Pulse Plating Seminar was held for the 8th time in Vienna on March 2nd 2018. The event was hosted in the Technical Museum of Vienna, ideally combining historic technical milestones with future-oriented technology. The Pulse Plating Seminar was organised by Dr. Wolfgang Hansal and colleagues from Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces GmbH in cooperation with east. The seminar was well attended by more than 50 participants from academy and industry representing 14 different countries, enjoying the presentations and participating in fruitful discussions on this topic.

The symposium was dedicated to the memory of the late east president Prof. Pietro Luigi Cavallotti, who passed away last October. Prof. P. L. Cavallotti was in addition to many other achievements also very active in the field of pulse plating. In honour of Prof. Pietro Luigi Cavallotti, the newly founded award for achievements in Pulse-Plating, the Pietro Cavallotti Award, was given to Dr. Jean-Claude Puippe, Steiger Galvanotechnique SA, for significant research and dissemination efforts within pulse plating technique. The Award was sponsored by Hirtenberger Engineered Surfaces GmbH.

In his presentation, Dr. Jean-Claude Puippe discussed the limiting factors of pulse plating with connection electrochemical fundamentals. With the derivation of the lower and upper limits of the length of the applied pulses from capacity effects and mass transport limitations. Dr. Jean-Claude Puippe managed to give a comprehensive overview of the single dependencies of the layer properties on the deposition parameters. For this, an interactive table was presented, visualising the critical parameters when exceeding the derived limits. His presentation, guidelines for setting pulse plating parameters, and the interactive excel table, visualizing the critical parameters when exceeding the derived limit, can be download here.

east Forum 2021

Since 1990, every year east forum promote in a two‐day international conference surface finishing and engineering by scientific and personals contacts of science and engineering from industry and academia. In this way, east forum predominates the activities of east in order to contribute to integration, understanding and friendship between European people and individuals.

The Schwäbisch Gmünd

Prize for Young Scientists

The Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize for Young Scientists is given in the name of the town of Schwäbisch Gmünd, where east has had its headquarter since its foundation in 1989. The town of Schwäbisch Gmünd has always been a strong support for east and has a long tradition of craftsmanship of precious metals. The Schwäbisch Gmünd Prize for Young Scientists was given for the first time 2017, but is going to be awarded every year to promising young scientist.

The mission of the European Academy of Surface Technology (east) is to promote Europe-wide science, research, training and education in the field of surface technology and related areas in order to contribute to the integration, understanding and friendship between European people and individuals.

The Schwäbisch Gmünd

Scientific Exchange Grant

The grant is given in the name of the town Schwäbisch Gmünd, where east has had its headquarter since its foundation in 1989. The town of Schwäbisch Gmünd has always been a strong support for east and has a long tradition of craftsmanship of precious metals. The Schwäbisch Gmünd Scientific Exchange Grant is established in celebration of the 30 years anniversary of east and is given for the first time 2020/2021.
