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

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
