Advanced joining techniques for modem lightweight steel construction*
Techniques d’assemblage des aciers à haute résistance pour véhicules allégés
New high-strength steel grades in combination with modern joining techniques contribute to optimize properties of the joints.
Specially heatless joining techniques improve the fatigue properties of the joints as well as the crash behaviour.
Such mechanical joining techniques are clinching and self piercing riveting. But the combined joining techniques e.g., weld bonding, clinching combined with bonding are also effective in the case of high-strength steel sheets. The minor heat input of laser-beam welds can also be used to join high strength steels to stiffer light weight structures.
