Sapa Profile Academy

26th/27th March Cheltenham Gloucestershire, and Redditch Worcestershire UK

Aluminium over the last decade has become an increasingly more popular material to use in various applications and product solutions, yet the knowledge of aluminium and profile construction is still low compared to more traditional materials.

Sapa has therefore developed the Profile Academy, an educational experience that helps to raise the skill levels of designers and engineers also giving your company a unique competitive advantage in the market.

Over two days attendees will meet Sapa experts, together with qualified lecturers, in an advanced course designed to demonstrate opportunities with aluminium.

Sapa's goal is to convey an understanding of the principles of materials, production, and construction technology. The training will also give visitors the tools with which they can create the optimum profile solution.

Profile Academy in brief:
- Principles and processes of the extrusion process
- Aluminium alloys
- Die design
- Profile design and construction for optimum production
- Design with regard to strength and fatigue
- Finishing
- Fabrication
- Welding including Friction Stir Welding
- Workshop: examples and analysis of profile solutions from a design and costs standpoint

The Profile Academy is free of charge but places are limited.
