Marine Firms Attend Hoffert Marine Seminar

R e p r e s e n t a t i v e s of the U.S.

Navy, Jacksonville Shipyards, estimators and production personnel of various marine firms attended an Electroplating Seminar held at the Jacksonville, Fla., headquarters of Hoffert Marine, Inc.

The Hoffert firm is the authorized U.S. Navy job shop for the East and Gulf Coasts. The group was welcomed to the oneday meeting by Paul E. Hoffert, president of Hoffert Marine.

Demonstrations of the Selectron 500, the largest electroplating machine, were made by David Rose of Selectrons, Ltd., New York. Mr. Rose pointed out that the electroplating machine has a variety of applications for both marine and industrial use.

The machine can replace metal on any type surface, inside or outside diameter, repair babitted bearings, printers rolls, special dyes, gold and silver contacts, large industrial shafts, pump sleeves, rotors, impellers, and most types of machinery.

In appearance, the Selectron Process works like an arc welder but has fewer problems. There is no heat distortion, no generating of internal stresses and generally no need for final remachining.
