The MM-W® connection method can be manually or automatically carried out, achieving a total time of less than one second. The reduced process time, together with the process simplicity and reliability, offer an ideal replacement for many currently employed connection methods.
Additionally, the MM-W® technology platform includes SmartSolutions, a remote monitoring and parametrization optimization service, which is aligned with the principles of Industry 4.0.
The MM-W® technology originated from the WoodWelding® technology, which has been in use for years not only in woodworking but also in surgery, and now we make it available for transportation industry.
MM-W is different than the current ultrasonic vibration applications, which do not include fastening elements for mechanical form-lock connections, and therefore the applications range is different. The ideal application of this technology is connection of fibrous and porous materials, which are widely used for interiors design of vehicles, such as:
- structural fibrous layers
- lightweight combined materials
- foam materials (polyurethane, etc.)
- insulation structures / heat shield structures
- combined layers with natural and glass fibers
- sandwich structures
- parcel shelf structures
- lining materials
- class-A surfaces
- plastic-metal connections
- incompatible plastic-plastic connections
MM-W® technology portfolio
Connection solutions for lightweight fibrous materials with thick or thin cross sections, insulation layers with metallic sheet, fixation of velcro elements, etc.
