Service & Support

VAP® licensees enjoy extensive services concerning the Vacuum Assisted Process, from evaluation of the method's suitability for a given application in comparison to other lightweight construction methods to advice at the implementation stage and on-going production support. In particular the partners in the VAP® Support network offer assistance in the development of fibre composite plastic components (FCP). Engineering services in this respect include formulation of individual specifications, conceptual design and detail engineering, production planning, testing and component qualification. When implementing the Vacuum Assisted Process in production work, VAP® users benefit from the long experience of VAP® Support partners in the formulation of manufacturing instructions and work schedules and in design-to-cost calculation for economical prototype and serial production on the basis of the membrane-assisted resin infusion process. In addition, VAP® Support partners provide training at every level ranging from shop-floor worker to manager. As an interface to those with necessary know-how they also enable further developments and adaptations in need with specific requirements.
