A rapid joint by alternative processes

Basque Country, Spain Romania

J-FAST project aims to develop new technologies mainly based on form processes to enhance the unions between dissimilar materials. These unions are very common in industrial sectors such as automotive, power generation or appliances. In the state of the art, form processes have become increasingly important because they reduce the need for further processing (joints without nuts). Besides, they are clean processes that do not need lubricants and do not generate chip. These solutions have been rather scientifically studied than implemented in practice. Within this project, the partners intend to expand these form processes to a number of materials and applications guarantying that the produced parts will be able to match and exceed the performance of conventional elements existing at present. So, the different work packages of the project should lead to new added products on different industrial areas (union of sheets in cars and appliances, plates in electric power generation, etc.)
