More solutions with multi-material joining

Designs using more than one material can provide solutions that are not feasible with single materials. But how do you join these different materials? Sirris and BIL are holding a seminar on 24 October about joining dissimilar materials.

Designs using more than one material can provide solutions that are not feasible with single materials. But how do you join these different materials? Sirris and BIL are holding a seminar on 24 October about joining dissimilar materials.

Industry is continually striving for improvements in structural components: in the transport sector weigh reduction is paramount, the mechanical engineering sector wants high performance machine components, and consumer and building product manufacturers are looking for greater integration of functionalities to provide the competitive advantage. The combination of traditional materials (structural steel and aluminium) with other traditional materials, or even with newer materials such as stainless steel, provides designers with more design opportunities where previously single material designs failed. Multi-material designs make use of materials that have optimal properties for each sub-structure.  

New technologies

Today there are a number of processes offering enormous potential for joining dissimilar materials.

This seminar will provide insights into the latest joining technologies for bonding dissimilar materials allowing companies to identify the appropriate joining technology for their products.

Would you like to know more? You can find all the information about the seminar taking place on 24 October in our agenda.

This seminar is part of the 'Multi Material Joining’ project. Sirris, Agoria, BIL and Flanders Make have joined forces to promote the practical knowledge of joining technologies throughout industry. This project is supported by Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship (VLAIO).
