Erscheinungsjahr: 1. April 2023
The purpose of this technical bulletin is to provide engineers and technicians working in design and production with generally applicable information on the use of hybrid joining (mechanical joining with bonding) in their industrial practice and to assist them in the layout of hybrid joints. The general objectives for hybrid joints are:
- Improvement of the mechanical properties, the durability and the service life of joints
- Enhancement of the functional properties in comparison with elementary mechanical and adhesive joints (e.g. seam sealing, seam isolation, damping, prevention of contact corrosion)
- Optimization of the manufacturing process for an elementary joining process (e.g. joining part fixation)
The scope includes the combination of the mechanical joining methods, described in the various EFB technical bulletins, with the addition of bonding (see also DVS Guideline 3310 and DVS Guideline 3320) with regard to the joining of uncoated and coated steel, aluminum, magnesium as well as composite materials and plastics in the form of joined parts made of sheets, plates, profiles and castings in overlap arrangement.
