The IWS offers a wide variety of solutions for surface-sensitive processes to join materials in multi-material-design. Support is available in the development of customized processes focused on productive and automated joining based on our vast material-specific expertise and experience with various pre-processing technologies used in industry.

In addition to our activities in the development of efficient joining technologies, we establish and coordinate projects in the field of fiber-reinforced composite lightweight design; these projects bring together our knowledge in the disciplines of laser micro processing,  ablation and cutting, chemical surface engineering and joining. Our range of services includes:

  • Consulting and feasibility studies
  • Performing R&D activities
  • Acquisition and coordination of research projects with public funding
  • Selection, modification and characterization of adhesives
  • Surface characterization
  • Choice, testing and benchmarking of surface pre-processing techniques
  • Engineering/ design and optimization of thermally-induced joining processes
  • Implementation of the overall bonding process on laboratory and industrial scales
  • Mechanical characterization of joining zones
  • Assessment and improvement of ageing and corrosion resistance
