Fixing fibre composites

In the automotive sector the growth in the use of fibre composites cannot be ignored, for they are no longer the domain of the supercars. The Böllhoff ONSERT® provides quick and reliable bonding.
Fastening elements made of transparent/translucent plastics with or without metallic thread reinforcements can be fixed using light-curing adhesive. For applications where flat connections are required, adhesive domes can be produced in different variations such as with internal thread, stud thread, ball stud or as snap connections. It can be employed whenever welding is technically impossible because the high heat causes problems; holes or openings in the components are not possible; or, as is the case with CFRP components, specific optical performance is required.

Suitable light sources have been developed for the processing concept. The specifically developed LED curing lamps can be integrated into hand held battery powered devices or into fully automated robot systems.
