SECURE BONDS.

Our customers associate us with high quality, making us a strong partner when it comes to perfect material bonds. We will help you find the right welding or riveting method or combination of methods for your material combinations, part geometries, and volume requirements.

JOINING/GLUING TECHNOLGY OVERVIEW

Cost-effective production solutions for long-lasting bonds

Joining applications are becoming more complex and diverse, and quality requirements are increasing. Different processes are used depending on the application area and the material combination, part geometry, and volume requirements.

Considering weldability during the design stage creates advantages later on. This is because the only way to compensate for tolerances and guarantee reliable welds is with perfectly designed weld-seam geometries. Our special FRIMO controls technology also plays a considerable role in the efficiency of the processes.
