Training courses in fiber composite technology for the car manufacturing industry

The automotive industry is a leader in the use of fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs), also known as fiber composites. Ever more car components are being produced from these light, high-strength materials. Glass giber reinforced plastics (GFRPs) and carbon fiber reinforced plastics (GFRPs), established materials in the aviation and aerospace industries, are being increasing used for car manufacture. Their lightness and ease of assembly are key reasons for this. However, they require special processing and error recognition requires specific knowledge, meaning that qualified employees are an absolute prerequisite for using FRPs.


Training courses in fiber composite technology at Fraunhofer IFAM


Fiber Reinforced Plastic Manufacturer

This one week course covers the fundamentals of fiber composite technology in theory and practice.


Fiber Reinforced Plastic Specialist

Industrial users learn to estimate the effects of the individual starting materials (e.g. fibers, matrix materials, core materials, fillers) on the properties of the final FRP components.


Fiber Reinforced Plastic Remanufacturer

Fraunhofer IFAM developed the FRP-Remanufacturer course to meet the special requirements for FRP repair. The focus is on training employees to repair the functionality of damaged FRP components on rail vehicles.


In-company / in-house courses

For companies who wish to train a larger number of their employees at the same time there is the option of holding courses at your company.
