European Patent n. EP 2801472 A1, Application Number 14167453.1 - "INDUCTION MACHINE FOR JOINING CONDUCTIVE COMPOSITES AND JUNCTION METHOD" (BIM-38)
Innovative device developed to control and optimize thermal gradients that arise during the welding of thermoplastic composites. In this way, avoiding drawbacks such as the effects of edge and superficial burns, it is possible to obtain joints with high performance and with low defect levels, without need to employ too expensive molds. This patent therefore allows to realize welding of a wider range of composite materials, in terms of thickness, of matrix type and sequence of lamination.
It is applied to a carbon fiber composite.
Applications is in aeronautics, automotive, sports & leisure, furniture sectors.
