This course is designed for engineers, technicians, and anyone else looking to advance their knowledge in adhesive bonding technology, while gaining a deeper understanding of surface preparation and the fundamental adhesion principles necessary to achieve a good bond to both (polymeric) composite and metallic surfaces.
This course is designed as follow-on to the M-1/R-1 Composite Structures: Fabrication & Damage Repair-Phase 1 course and is intended for those wanting to further their knowledge of composite manufacturing, whether in preparation for employment in the advanced composite manufacturing industry, or as engineers or technicians desiring a further understanding of the practical skills involved in producing quality composite structures.
Our most popular class, Advanced Composite Structures: Fabrication & Damage Repair-Phase 1 is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of personnel; from the novice to the seasoned professional. This course is a prerequisite for both our repair and manufacturing programs and is highly recommended to anyone seeking a better understanding of advanced composite materials, processes, layup/lamination, vacuum bagging, adhesive bonding, tooling, repair, and inspection methods and techniques.
The certificate program is offered to those persons who are currently teaching, or those that wish to teach subjects related to advanced composite materials, manufacturing, or repair. This course is designed as part of Abaris’ train-the-trainer (TTT) program that allows a dedicated student to become an Abaris “Certified Composite Instructor: Level I.” It is an opportunity to learn and grow with the best trainers in the world.
The course is designed to introduce new technology to a wide range of composites personnel including material & process engineers, inspectors, technicians, QA personnel, and process equipment operators. This course has been designed to demonstrate engineering, certification, and manufacturing methods for implementation of available technologies both within limits of existing process specifications and to enable greater use of these technologies in future designs.
This course is designed for the supplier quality auditor, internal auditor, quality engineer, inspector, or any other individuals wanting to gain knowledge in advanced composite manufacturing practices and procedures. The course is designed to provide an in-depth look at how composite products are fabricated and the quality controls that go along with each step in the process.
This course is designed for the tooling engineer, tool designer, tool fabricator, or anyone else that has a desire to learn about designing and building molds and fixtures using advanced composite materials.
This five-day course is designed for the repair technician, fabricator, or inspector tasked with identifying and quantifying defects in new or damaged composite panels using the latest equipment, methods, and techniques. The course is very “hands-on” in nature, and quite busy. The instruction is performed by an ASNT certified Level III engineer and is flexible to adapting to the students needs.
This course is designed for the engineer, technician, laminator, fabricator, or anyone else wanting to learn about the fundamental principles and more complex concepts involved in resin infusion technology.
