Bonding and Mechanical Fastenings Following Researched Repair Methods
£325 + VAT
AOM-133 is intended for technicians whose job role involves the repair of vehicle bodies.
This unique module covers the replacement of a panel section which is secured by adhesive / bonding and mechanical fastenings. It has been developed so that technicians can prove their capability in following researched repair methods, to carry out modern joining techniques and meet the criteria relating to BS10125.
The module also assesses technicians’ ability to follow a researched repair method to remove existing bonded and mechanically fixed panels, apply blind rivets, self-piercing rivets, flow form rivets and use structural adhesives in conjunction with a reinforcement plate.
ITAS was involved in the development of AOM 133 to ensure that the standalone assessed outcome module is fit for purpose and effectively raises standards in the use of adhesives and mechanical fastenings during manufacture and repair procedures.
The assessment is carried out on an industry designed and approved panel section, however the repair standard must be the same as on a vehicle bodyshell.
This module has been developed to enable technicians to prove their competence in using researched repair methods to support the process of cutting body panels and securing them using bonding /adhesive and mechanical fastenings.
Using industry designed repair methods, the candidate will cut and remove a section from a previously bonded panel and fit a replacement section, without causing damage to the flanges and inner structures. The part-replacement panel must be aligned and secured with an appropriate structural adhesive and a variety of specified mechanical fastenings.
