One week course teaches how to avoid errors when manufacturing and using FRP materials
Qualified personnel are required to use Fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs) professionally and to fully exploit its innovative potential. These experts must know and understand the special features of the material, as well as the interplay between material and production process - because not all FRPs are the same.
In practice, the choice of each individual component and also the manufacturing process has a great influence on the properties of the resulting material and thus also on the properties of the component. The Fraunhofer IFAM therefore offers the one-week course "FRP Manufacturer" in which a basic understanding of FRP is imparted, manual manufacturing processes are learned in practice and the recognition of faults in the material is practised.
