Sapa Academy on design
Those who do not pay attention to design will not be in business tomorrow. Are you interested in learning more about aluminium design?
We offer you Sapa Profile Academy, a multi-day program with hands-on assistance from design experts who can help you turn ideas into innovative, functional and cost-efficient solutions.
Material tolerances and industry standards
The program includes information about such things as tolerances and how various parts can be made to fit together. It also includes a seminar on how to understand and interpret often-complicated industry standards.
Showcases using aluminium design
New ideas are frequently sparked by a presentation showcasing customer cases using aluminium design. A customer in one industry can get inspiration using techniques across disciplines. For example, one customer working with refrigerated delivery trucks borrowed an insulation technology from the aluminium window industry.
Hydro's design manual includes sections on designing with aluminium, alloy selection, joining, profile tolerances, surface quality and surface treatment, machining, corrosion and structural calculations. And a lot more.
In your program, you will work with professionals from different industries on aluminium designs and solutions. This will help your creative process. And often, when you conclude the group work, you will find designs turned into solutions that save you time and money with a product that is more feasible from a production standpoint.
Aluminium is a material that catches the eye
Good design has to do with seeing something from a different perspective. And aluminium is a material that catches the eye.
