Force-application element for the Functionalization of Thermoplastic Fiber Composite Components

Force-application element for the Functionalization of Thermoplastic Fiber Composite Components

This paper presents a newly developed two-part force-application element made of thermoplastic to functionalize thermoplastic fiber composite components after the fiber composite component production. The element`s rotational symmetry ensures a simple handling, both in the welding and feeding process. Ultrasonic joining technology enables a cohesive bond of the element in just a few seconds. The mechanical characteristics of the weldment are determined for different thermoplastic fiber-reinforced composites. Furthermore, the influence of the element on the properties of the fiber-reinforced composite is investigated. The force-application element is suitable in the automotive sector, for example for the attachment of cable harnesses, noise insulations or control devices.
