Aluminium, carbon and plastics: automated joining processes for the automotive industry

The automotive industry is facing a huge transformation. In addition to the choice of drive system, the choice of materials is of great interest for the car of the future. Car manufacturers are increasingly relying on a material mix of different aluminium qualities, carbon and plastic. Riveting is used to join the components in order to ensure that the joints hold despite the different material properties.

The automated riveting cell developed by IBG for industrial use enables a highly efficient and reliable joining process. To rivet two flat components of any material together at previously defined positions, we use an industrial robot equipped with an adaptive C-frame riveting gun for the automated joining process. In contrast to manual riveting, the efficiency, accuracy and variety of variants are decisive advantages of the fully automatic riveting station from IBG.
