Training courses in fiber composite technology for the rail vehicle manufacturing industry

Fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs) are used widely in the rail vehicle manufacturing industry. The lightness of FRPs makes these materials particularly attractive for rail vehicle manufacture. However, they require special processing and error/damage recognition requires specific knowledge. This means 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.
