Thematic Lectures

Presentation of electrophoretic surface protection of metals (also known as KTL / cataphoresis / e-coating) for effective and permanent anti-corrosion protection. TPV Automotive has been providing e-coating for 15 years with one of technologically most advanced lines in Europe. With more than 60 years of experience in the automotive industry, TPV Automotive provides the highest level of protection in line with modern standards. Cataphoresis is comprehensive, environmentally friendly surface protection of machined pieces. Even and aesthetically flawless application over the entire surface, including hollow and hidden areas and sharp edges without collecting drops. Excellent base for additional powder coating.

5G is a network technology for the next decade and will also define a broader network architecture, ICT infrastructure and services in industries where Iskratel and the S&C Group are also genuine with their solutions (telecoms, transport, energy, public safety, manufacturing and other industries). 5G solutions will be especially important in industries with business-critical applications and critical infrastructure and will be one of the "enablers" of digitalization of technical industries. The lecture will show market trends in the field of 5G, examples of actual use and offer insight into how to best use 5G technology for private networks when companies decide to digitize. Based on industry insight, Iskratels portfolio and strategy, participants will receive many answers to questions that arise in relation to market needs in this area.

With lots of new technology, it is easier than ever to imagine people using wearables in their workplace. Architects using a holo-lens to prepare a site for construction or a medical student practicing performing their first surgery in virtual reality, but despite the advances - these technologies are unlikely to be used in everyday life anytime soon. Smartwatches, on the other hand, are already penetrating the business market.
