Hybrid joints – combined joints

Hybrid connections means that two material connection methods are combined, most often a method of mechanical connection such as riveting, skirting, screwing and welding combined with adhesive bonding. Hybrid joints are used where conventional joining cannot be fully utilised. Connection of composites, which have been enjoying a growing popularity, in the automotive or aviation industry is a good example.

The focus of the seminar are hybrid joints in practical applications, their benefits and disadvantages. The participants will gain new knowledge of the application of adhesives for hybrid connections and deepen their knowledge of thermal bonding processes.
