MM-Welding InWWerse Fastener

MultiMaterial-Welding® InWWerse® Fastener

The InWWerse® Fastener was born out of the need to join thermoplastic parts in a quick and reliable manner. It was developed specifically for situations where you are facing low wall thickness and for decorative environments, when discrete connections are desired. 

The InWWerse® Fastener is based on the innovative MultiMaterial-Welding® process, which uses ultrasonic energy to partially melt thermoplastics and thus join lightweight or composite materials. The process creates a strong, form-locking connection in just fractions of a second and offers a number of advantages:

  • very fast processing times
  • suitable for low wall-thicknesses
  • no pre-hole or through-hole required
  • no liquid adhesive required
  • no marks nor fastener appearance on the distal side

Therefore, the InWWerse® Fastener system does not only offer superior quality, but also significant cost reductions and process optimizations.
You can learn more about the InWWerse® Fastener here.

WITOL tolerance compensation systems

WITOL®

WITOL® tolerance compensation fasteners were developed to balance out manufacturing tolerances in the form of cavities or to adjust for gap dimensions. The WITOL® system allows for a solid and tension-free connection of component parts with each other and is used primarily in the automotive industry.

The system offers a wide range of standard parts for different applications, but the compensation fastener can also be adjusted to perfectly integrate into any given environment. WITOL® thus offers solutions that can be 100% adapted to the customers interface, from the initial conception to serial production. Learn more about WITOL® here.

Bossard ecosyn-SEF

ecosyn®-SEF

The ecosyn®-SEF is a multifunctional fastening element consisting of a hexagon nut, a flat washer, and a conical washer. It was developed for the safe connection of electrically conductive contacts, especially in the EV / automobile industry. The ecosyn®-SEF combines three different products into one simple solution, thus providing unique benefits. Learn from our engineers what makes the ecosyn®-SEF so special and what its advantages are:
