European Adhesive Bonder

Basic training in adhesive bonding

Training and certification as European Adhesive Bonder as per DVS/EWF 3305 (EAB)

Training objectives:
In day-to-day practice, problems often occur when making adhesive-bonded connections. Marginal conditions, which are of no significance in conventional joints are of importance when making adhesive-bonded connections. Neglecting such conditions can result in badly-glued joints and consequently in reworking costs and an increase in rejects.

On successful completion of the course, the participants will be able to professionally handle adhesive bonding tasks as per specification.
The theoretical training is supported by intensive practical exercises. Theory and practice are knit together to provide the student with
a deep understanding of the differences between adhesive bonding and conventional bonding methods and thus avoid failures during production.

The training ends with a theoretical and practical exam held by an independent examination board of the DVS. On successfully passing the exam, the trainee receives a certificate which is valid throughout Europe and is recognised by the EWF (European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting).

Employees entrusted with adhesive bonding tasks in manufacturing and assembly.
