Various processes with and without additional fasteners are currently used for the production of hybrid material connections. This leads to different requirements and problems when joining. A cohesive hybrid composite joint of fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) and metal by gluing requires, for example , complex pretreatment of the joining partners. With mechanical joining concepts, the joining elements usually destroy the load-bearing fibers locally and require access to the metal and FKV semi-finished products from both sides. In addition, there is a lot of effort in positioning accuracy. The new process principle, which was developed jointly by the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU) and the Technical University of Braunschweig, represents an additional joining process for joining metal sheets with FRP, wood and plastic semi-finished products.
