On Wednesday and Thursday, June 17th and 18th, the TPRC will organize a two-day introductory course on thermoplastic composites. Typical features of thermoplastic composites will be elaborated in an interactive and theoretical classroom setting, as well as hands-on practical lab sessions. In this course, several processing techniques will be introduced. Participants will learn more about press forming, laser-assisted fiber placement, welding technologies, mechanical testing and NDT. During the course participants will get answers to the following questions:
- What are thermoplastic composites?
- Why thermoplastic composites?
- How to process thermoplastic composites?
- How to apply thermoplastic composites?
The Introduction to Thermoplastic Composites course is well-suited for entry level participants who are considering future applications of thermoplastic composites. A background in composites is not needed, however, basic knowledge in materials and/or production engineering is advantageous. The course includes course materials, lunches, drinks and dinner.
