Issue Highlights:
Adhesive bonding of injection-moulded plastics using stress-cracking-active adhesives

The project presented here in parts had the objectives of investigating and understanding the influences of varied injection moulding parameters on the environmental stress cracking resistance (ESCR) and assessing the in...

Weld peculiarities of infrared-welded joints between laser-sintered and injection-moulded components

Joining procedures are required for the complete exploitation of additive manufacturing. In this respect, welding permits a high bonding quality with welding factors up to 1.0. However, it is conspicuous that the weld bu...

Consideration of rheological processes during the welding of plastics by means of numerical simulation and microscopic analyses

The present paper investigates analysis methods with regard to the time-related course of the melt flow during the welding of thermoplastic components and estimates the analysis potentials. In the analytical approach, th...
