TRAINING COURSE – Additive Manufacturing – Operator Powder Bed Fusion – Laser Beam

Die Ausbildung zum Operator Powder Bed Fusion richtet sich nach Richtlinie EWF-AM-QUAL-003-19.

The training provides the necessary expertise to carry out powder bed-based additive manufacturing processes. The course provides optimum preparation for taking responsibility for these processes in your own company.

On the one hand, theoretical knowledge is imparted on additive manufacturing, the operation and maintenance of systems, construction job preparation, as well as post-processing and quality assurance of finished additively manufactured components. The training will also focus on laser beam characterization and occupational safety.

On the other hand, practical exercises are carried out on the equipment of ifw Jena for all theoretical units.

The course has a modular structure. All modules can be taken individually and each concludes with an examination. The qualification as operator PBF-LB is awarded upon successful completion of all modules.

The training is based on guideline EWF-AM-QUAL-003-19.
