Training courses in adhesive bonding technology

© Fraunhofer IFAM

The use of adhesive bonding technology has become the norm in many sectors of industry. Two of the highest profile industries to use adhesive bonding are the automotive industry and aircraft industry. However, the rail vehicle manufacturing industry has played a pioneering role in laying down strict requirements for workforce training in adhesive bonding technology (DIN 6701). Even so, many companies are still much in the dark about the opportunities of adhesive bonding. Often traditional joining techniques such as welding and riveting are still preferred – albeit without reason! In particular, Fraunhofer IFAM believes there are many further opportunities for using adhesive bonding technology in the wind energy industry and transport sector.
