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 2 (2021)

Issue Highlights:
Development of a test bench for the inline determination of the molten pool depth during the joining of additively manufactured structures and thermoplastic FRPs using a laser

A test bench for the inline analysis of the influencing variables during the joining of semi-finished products which are reinforced with continuous fibres and have functionalisation elements was developed at the Institut...

Simulation and adhesive bonding of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastics

The investigations presented here concentrate on adhesive bonding for the joining of continuous fibre reinforced thermoplastics with aluminium. Surface pretreatment is essential for the reliable adhesive bonding of conti...

Infrared welding in tempered ambient conditions

As the moulding size and the machine size associated with this increase, the minimum possible changeover time of an infrared (IR) welding machine becomes ever longer and IR welding with high strengths ever more difficult...
