Understand aluminium tolerances and industry standards

The information package includes knowledge about tolerances and how various parts can be made to fit together. A seminar on how to understand and interpret often-complicated industry standards regarding tolerances is also part of the program.

This is what participants have said about their experience:

"The Profile Academy covers a broad area. This provided me with an excellent basis for further development in subjects that are necessary in the automobile industry. I see now that the material and the construction methods offer excellent opportunities."

"My visit to the Profile Academy provided me with an interesting view on the options in constructing aluminium profiles. The course covered the technique and also provided me with a number of ideas for applications. I learned so much."
