Thermal embedding of inserts

We have developed an additional technology to series production standard with which metallic inserts can be embedded in thermoplastic components subsequently to their manufacture. Heat is applied to the insert by contact and thus transmitted to the joining site in the plastic component. The partial plasticising of the material creates a secure, positive locking connection.

Advantages:

  • Torsion-proof connection
  • Captive connection
  • High resistance to extraction
  • Low-tension connection
