Mechanical joining of dissimilar materials by shear clinching processes without pre-punching (shear clinching)



Project Status: Active

Subproject DFG Priority program 1640

This project which is part of the SPP 1640 is focused on the research of an innovative joining operation of different materials without additional aids. The process is based on a clinching process, where the connection results from a material flow of the upper joining partner behind the pre-cut bottom partner. But in contrast to this method, the mechanical joining is performed without pre-cut operation in the investigated shear clinching process. This leads to a reduction of steps in the process chain. A great potential in this development is the identification of the relevant parameters of the process and the development of a process window. Another aim of the project is the improvement of the tool components and the optimisation of the connection.
