Tomorrow’s alternatives for proven adhesive technologies

Mechanical joining technologies. © Composites EuropeComposites Europe from 6-8 November in Stuttgart will show the advantages and drawbacks of mechanical composite joining technologies such as crimping, gluing, riveting and screwing for the respective fibre composite.

Depending on the process, various factors have to be taken into account. During riveting, for example, the fibre layers are damaged by delamination during the pilot drilling. Drilling also weakens the component. Furthermore, the power transmission between the components to be joined is very limited locally. In bonded parts, the gap width can cause problems. Nevertheless, it is the standard process for joining fibre composites due to the uniform power transmission that makes optimum use of the material properties.
