Seminar joining of dissimilar materials

Organised by Sirris, BIL, Agoria and Flanders Make, this seminar will provide insights into the latest, modern joining technologies for bonding dissimilar materials allowing companies to identify the appropriate joining technology for their products. Combinations of different materials can offer designers solutions where designs using single materials have failed. There are a number of different processes offering enormous potential for joining dissimilar materials.
