Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

An innovative process involving a high-power, short-pulse laser is the key to creating strong metal and plastic joints for the automotive and aerospace industries.

FLORIAN KIEFER, TRUMPF INC.

The demand for lightweight construction and economic efficiency has led to R&D efforts in metal-plastic combinations. Although primarily driven by the automotive industry, this has become an increasingly important topic for other industries as well. By using a high-power short-pulse laser it is possible to establish a simple joint with a very high loadability. Design engineers are therefore gaining access to the completely new and innovative application possibilities of hybrid assemblies. Image taken during the structuring process. The structured material appears at the left of...Read full article
