Aluminum is one of the most versatile metals in use: Its low weight, high strength and formability make it a universal material that is used for the manufacture and further processing of high-quality products. As an interdisciplinary research and development partner for industrial application, the aec offers a pool of highly qualified materials scientists 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, 3 or 4 days.
