The existing Fiber Reinforced Plastic Remanufacturer course is being augmented by a one-week Fiber Reinforced Plastic Fabricator course (starter level) and a three-week Fiber Reinforced Plastic Specialist course (advanced level). The new state-of-the-art facilities of the Plastics Competence Center are now available for all the practical sessions and are situated in the direct vicinity of Fraunhofer IFAM.

The institute will also present details of its training courses in adhesive bonding technology at Composites Europe (Hall 6, Stand A02) in Stuttgart from September 17-19, 2013.
The growing importance of lightweight construction is resulting in fiber reinforced plastics (FRPs) being used for an ever greater number of applications. As a consequence, the demands on employee skills are increasing. To respond to this, the Plastics Competence Center of Fraunhofer IFAM is expanding its range of training courses in the area of fiber reinforced plastics.
Moreover, the course contents will be even more customized to the needs of the participants. "The focus will be on how to manufacture quality FRP materials and how to carry our repairs. FRPs are being increasingly used for lightweight construction. Precise knowledge of how to manufacture and use FRPs in practice is vital here. A trained workforce is a must in order to efficiently utilize the potential of FRPs.", says Dr. Silke Mai, Head of the Plastics Competence Center of Fraunhofer IFAM. "We teach the course participants about the functions of the materials and how to handle them during the manufacturing process. These factors have a key influence on the subsequent properties of the components as do the boundary conditions of the manufacturing process."
The various courses provide information about laminate structure and component geometry and highlight the special features of these materials. Each course contains in-depth practical sessions to consolidate the theoretical knowledge. This develops familiarity with FRPs and allows sources of defects to be identified at an early stage and, moreover, avoided in advance.Fiber Reinforced Plastic Fabricator
A feature of all courses provided by Fraunhofer IFAM is the direct introduction of the latest research & development results into the training courses. The know-how acquired by companies enables them to utilize the opportunities of adhesive bonding and fiber reinforced plastic technology to drive their own product innovation.Contact

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
