The bilingual (German/English) JOINING PLASTICS publication exclusively covers its title subject area. Application-oriented, peer-reviewed technical articles present the latest developments and state-of-the-art for series welding and joining of plastics in pipeline, tank and machinery construction.

Issue 3 (2021)

Issue Highlights:
Non-destructive integrity test for butt-welded plastic pipes on the construction site - Bead bend back test

At present, no universal testing method exists for the quality assurance of the mechanical strength in the case of pipe systems. As a rule, destructive tests on a random basis (e.g. tensile and bending tests) are carried...

Development of a thermal simulation model for the laser transmission joining of PA 6.6 with CrNi steel

In this investigation, a thermal simulation model is developed for the laser transmission joining of PA 6.6 with high-alloy chromium-nickel steel in order to predict the temperature courses and the joining weld geometrie...

Injection riveting for the joining of thermoplastic composites with metal parts

Hybrid technology is a widespread procedure variant of injection moulding for the joining of plastics and metals. This also applies to the procedure variant called “hybrid moulding“ which makes direct use of forming and...
