Dörken Days 2016
This year the Dörken Days took place in Münster, from 24 to 26 November 2016. Numerous representatives from the automobile industry as well as the subcontractor industry from throughout Europe and Turkey made their way to the small city of Münster. In addition, representatives of the construction industry, plant engineering firms and, of course, the whole range of Dörken coating companies came together to learn news from the company and the international automobile market as well as to discuss current technical issues and developments.
One of the guest papers presented on the first day was that of Scherdel GmbH. Entitled “Component testing vs. module testing”, it addressed possible factors influencing individual components in the module. The fastener manufacturer Revifa SpA reported on the approval process at the OEM, describing it as a “major challenge”. The conclusion to the trade programme on this day came in the form of a paper by Dörken MKS on specification work in the USA.
The second day of the event was initially focused on “screwed fasteners”. Following an introduction to this subject by Michael Stähler of Dörken MKS- Systeme GmbH&Co.KG, the participants received key background information on current amendments to screwed fastener standards. This was followed by the presentation of guest papers by REC Engineering GmbH, Schatz GmbH and TesT GmbH, who have established themselves in their field as manufacturers for screw test benches.
The participants at the symposium praised the depth of information of the papers, with numerous practical benefits for everyday tasks, but also enjoyed the fact that the schedule allowed ample time for discussion and networking
