Adhesive bonding is capable of being used in load‐bearing engineering applications, particularly for joining sheet materials. However, it is also used for a wide range of applications up to the large structures used in civil engineering. Modern structural adhesives are strong, but will only work...
Joining, while first and foremost a pragmatic undertaking, concerned more with needs and results than with theory, will likely have to change with the dawn of the twenty‐first century to a true science. As materials become ever‐more sophisticated in their chemical composition, molecular...
Reviews developments in the magnetic pulse welding process, describes how the technique can be used for joining two different metals, and outlines potential applications in the automotive industry.
Reviews the all‐aluminium space frame structure of the new Audi A2, describes the techniques used in the body‐in‐white shop, and outlines trim and final assembly operations.
Trials using high powered laser arrays recently available, have shown that a range of joining and surface treatment processes are possible. These range from transmission welding of polymeric materials to surface hardening, soldering and welding of steels.
A conference with the above title was held in London last November on the day after the government published a book Manufacturing in the Knowledge Driven Economy , covering similar ground. Speakers from manufacturing and consultancy organizations told of their experience in adopting knowledge...
UV light curing of adhesives has become the method of choice for many more industrial bonding, sealing, coating, potting and tacking applications. Because faster cures provide more efficient manufacturing processes and lower total assembly cost, and because light curing adhesives are being used...
Fibre reinforced polymer composites (FRPs) are finding increasing usage in many industrial sectors. Adhesive bonding is often the most attractive joining technique for these materials in terms of structural efficiency and cost of manufacture. However, concerns regarding the lack of reliable...
Design for Assembly (DFA) is now a well established technique for cost reduction at the design‐manufacture interface. The method described here is simple, highly visual and team based and can be learned in a single day of training and experience has shown that a design team can achieve...
