Bonding is an adhesive curing process which allows achieving quick joining of two elements. In the modern assembly of mechanical parts bonding is increasingly used instead of spot welding and rivets as examples.
Induction bonding consists of accelerating the polymerization of the glue by heating the metal parts to be joined. The required temperatures are generally in the range from 150ºC to 220°C.
De-bonding of rubber components can be critical to the re-utilization of costly manufactured coated components. The energy efficient application of induction heat reduces overall manufacturing costs for production.
Induction Bonding is the preferred bonding method in the automotive industry, widely used to bond steel and aluminum sheet metal. Induction Bonding is increasingly employed to bond new lightweight composite and
carbon fiber materials. Induction Bonding is used to bond curved strands, brake shoes and magnets in the electro technical industry. This process is largely used in assembly lines of car bodywork and aerospace
Advantages/Benefits of Induction bonding:
• Induction bonding has controlled heating which allows constant which ensures constant quality of joints.
• Easy integration in assembly lines and reduced process time
• A small heated zone which minimizes total panel elongation.
• This process ensures precise heat input to each area.
• Properties of induction bonding adhesives are excellent compared to adhesive cured by oven or convectional heat processes.
• Monitoring and controlling the surface temperature of the substrate is possible which gives accurate and consistent curing of adhesive.
