Familiarise yourself with the material aluminum or deepen your knowledge in the areas of further processing and possible applications. In addition to the basics of metallurgy, you will also receive a broad knowledge of the individual process steps in manufacturing and processing aluminium products.
▶ Use of aluminum in automotive construction
▶ Forming technologies and welding procedures
▶ Casting technology: metallurgy and processing
▶ Insight into the research of various institutes at RWTH Aachen University
Group of Participants
You are a specialist or newcomer from an aluminum processing company.
Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals in use: low weight, high strength and formability make it a universal material that is used in the manufacture and further processing of high-quality products. As an interdisciplinary research and development partner for industrial applications, the aluminum engineering center Aachen (aec) offers a pool of highly qualified material technicians and engineers for future projects.
Through lectures and practical exercises, the entire process chain, from the manufacture of an aluminum component to testing in a drop tower, is completed. It is possible to attend the seminar as needed for 2 or 4 days.
