A Contribution to the Mechanical Joining of Metal-Thermoplastic Mixed Joints
Because of its advantageous properties there is an extended utilization of point-shaped joints, like the clinching, in the sheet processing industry for metal-metal joints. These joining technologies are not relevant for metal-thermoplastic joints currently. The main reason for this could be the fact that the clinching process seems not to be eligible for thermoplastic materials.
In the present thesis the fundamentals for clinching metal to thermoplastics were worked out and qualified. The results allow creating reproducible joints out of these materials. Process features and mechanical properties of clinched metal-thermoplastic joints were investigated. Also the influence of moisture and heat input during and after the clinching process was in focus.Lesen Sie die deutsche Zusammenfassung auf Kunststoffe.de
