The PHS basics will be trained in our Foundation Training (FT) Heat Treatment & Hot Forming of Steel. With the Advanced Trainings (AD) participants can deepen and extend their knowledge of the FT. All Executive Trainings (ET) can take place on-site at the plant of the customer. Additional to these comprehensive trainings, we offer a wide range of suitable Additional Trainings (ADT) referring to this technology in complex metal forming, press hardening and hot stamping.
