Collocated TrainingsFollowing an increase in demand for combining European events with training courses, SAE Europe has put in place three training courses with cutting-edge material for the manufacturing, automation, and fastening community. As this community will meet at the SAE 2016 Aerospace Manufacturing and Automated Fastening Conference & Exhibition on October 4-5, these training courses have been organized on October 6-7 to allow all attendees to have the full experience rather than having to choose between the conference, meetings, and the trainings. The three courses have been updated with the latest information and “will include material never before seen in academia or industry and incorporate the very latest in composite technology that is rapidly evolving,” according to instructor George “Nick” Bullen. The course lineup consists of:
- Understanding the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval Process
(October 6-7)-The requirements for producing an FAA-approved replacement part can be daunting. Understanding the steps required in the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) process can greatly streamline the approval life-cycle and reduce unnecessary costs and delays, thereby shortening the time and cost to market. This course is designed for those organizations and individuals interested in designing and manufacturing replacement parts for civil aviation aircraft.
- Introduction to Composites Fabrication and Assembly in Aerospace, Space, and Transportation
(October 6)- This seminar will introduce participants to composites technologies that have applications beyond aerospace, including such markets as trucks, automobiles, and wind turbines. The instructor will define, illustrate, and describe the innovative manufacturing processes and technologies that have been used to solve the “composite challenge” for aerospace and space vehicles.
- Automated Systems for Aerospace and Space Applications
(October 7)- This seminar introduces participants to the critical components of automation necessary to be informed and knowledgeable about the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of automated systems for aerospace and space applications. The instructor will guide participants through the types, components, operation, application, cost benefits, laws, strengths, and limitations of automation.
