Training courses in fiber composite technology for the wind energy industry

Key wind turbine components such as rotor blades and nacelles are nowadays made of fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs). Particular benefits of FRPs for the wind energy industry are their lightness, anti-corrosion properties, and ease of assembly. It is vital that FRP users fully understand these materials because they are unlike conventional materials such as metals. Qualified employees are therefore 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.
