Abstract:The development of manufacturing methods for producing plastic-metal hybrid structures has already opened new possibilities for lightweight design. Contrarily to the existing technologies i.e. Insert, Outsert and Hybrid Technology, the new forming process “Polymer Injection Forming” (PIF) offers the advantages associated with injection moulding technology and hydroforming technology in a way that hybrid structures can be produced in a single step. The polymer which is used as pressure medium in a melted state …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
