Multimaterial joining center
Study and development of advanced solutions for multimaterial joining (metal-metal, metal-composite) based on different available technologies (adhesive joining, laser joining, VCSE joining, mechanical joining (pop rivet, self-pierce riveting), joining by forming, etc.) and their combination. It includes all the process stages: Materials compatibility, joint and material characterization, process simulation, surface functionalization for strength improvement, implementation of the suitable joining method, supervision and control of main relevant parameters, etc.
