Alternatives to Gluing and Mechanical Joining
Thermal Direct Joining of Plastic-Metal Combinations for Industrial Applications
The joining of dissimilar materials is a special challenge for joining technology. Thermal direct joining together with suitable surface treatments enables stable joints between very dissimilar materials combinations, thus ‧offering an alternative to classic procedures for joining hybrid parts.
