Fasteners for lightweight compositesJune 14, 2016
Matthew Stevens, Managing Director of bigHead, talks in the Blog of DesignNews about new composite materials, manufacturing techniques and fastening possibilites.
Some composite structures are just millimetres thick; that's not enough to embed a fastener. The answer is to surface-bond the joint. It's a strong, effective and discrete solution.
Here just some benefits using bigHead products:
- making products lighter by minimizing material sections
- remove or reduce secondary operations
- cut cycle times
- automate fastener installation
- and much more
Read the Blog with interesting explanation of new trends and requirements of the lightweight industry.
