Planning Adhesive Bonding Production
The compatibility of adhesive bonding production processes can be tested in advance using a variety of methods. Based on customer-specific requirements, the specialists in adhesive bonding technology at Fraunhofer IFAM develop potential production concepts and evaluate their benefits for the customer.
The technical suitability of these production concepts are subsequently verified by manufacturing prototypes. For complex issues, simulation methods give insight into future production processes. Furthermore, a self-developed software (IFAM Calculation Tool) allows for accurate estimation of the expected production and investment costs. The suitability of customer requirements can be tested at an early stage of the development, thus identifying potential critical issues in advance.
