Long-term loading of welded joints – What infuence do cyclic loads have on ultrasonically welded joints?
Nowadays, stringent requirements are set on plastic products in the automobile sector as well as in medical technology and electrotechnology.
At Chemnitz University of Technology, it was possible to develop a combination of procedures consisting of mechanical clinching technology and a fusion bonding process applied using torsional ultrasonic vibrations.
Experimental investigations into the dimensioning of the static pull-out strength of the screwed blind rivet
Screwed blind riveting combines the direct screwing of plastics and blind riveting into a new joining procedure which can be integrated into an injection-moulded component.
