MM-Welding® – Smart joining of lightweight materials

MM-Welding® technology is an innovative fastening technique using ultrasonic energy to create a frictional positive connection in porous materials, sheet structures, sandwich materials, injection-moulded and pressure mouldings. To achieve this, rod or collar-shaped thermoplastic elements are used to fasten components.

Features:

  • Significantly stronger connections than with many other fastening methods
  • Can be used without pre-setting to take up tolerance
  • Clean processing, as no additional materials or pre-treatment of surfaces is required and no waste is produced
  • Statistical check on the process, which guarantees the quality of the individual fastenings
  • The technology is used in a wide range of industrial processes and in other industries, such as medicine and the furniture industry

MM-Welding LiteWWeight Pin Application
  • Fastening on foamed honeycomb structures and/or porous building components
  • Typical application: Load floor, parcel shelf, roof panel
MM-Welding LiteWWeight Pin
  • Full integration in substrate possible
  • High strength: Pull-out forces of higher than 1000N can be achieved through deep integration into HCB material
  • Very fast processing time of ~1 second
  • No pre-drilling necessary in most cases
  • Possible to pierce through thick decor materials
  • Placement directly at the edge of the material possible
  • The different fastener geometries enable different types of applications

  • LiteWWeight® Lotus
  • Applications
  • Features
MM-Welding LiteWWeight Lotus

LiteWWeight® Lotus is a fast and reliable connection concept for fibrous components and textile structures.

MM-Welding LightWWeight Lotus Application
  • Fastening in woven and non-woven structures
  • Typical applications: Passenger car floor trim, heat shields, wheel arch liners, headliners, NVH
MM-Welding LiteWWeight Lotus
  • Very fast cycle times
  • High strength due to intensive integration in the fibre matrix
  • Simple and more complex 3-D geometries (due to direction of motion of the fastening element only being in the z-direction)
  • Ideal integration into textile structures possible

  • LiteWWeight® zEPP
  • Applications
  • Features
MM-Welding LiteWWeight zEPP

LiteWWeight® zEPP is a fast and efficient fastening technology for all expaned polyproylene (EPP) materials based on the innovative MM-Welding® process.

Product information  |  Video

MM-Welding LiteWWeight zEPP Application
  • Solution for fixation into expanded polypropylene (EPP) foam

  • Dowel solution to create a durable threaded fixation point with or without metal insert

MM-Welding LiteWWeight zEPP
  • Very fast cycle times (~1 second)
  • High pull-out force due to optimal anchoring with the EPP material
  • Very high torque transmission possible due to MM-Welding® specific "Anti-Turning" geometry
  • Full integration into the substrate
  • Placement directly at the edge of the material possible
  • Low overall height of the fastener increases design freedom
  • Applicable for all density ranges
  • No pre-drilling necessary

  • LiteWWeight® Double Pin
  • Applications
  • Features
MM-Welding LiteWWeigth Double Pin

This fastener is designed to realize fast and strong fixation that can be designed for plastic direct screws, with a metric internal thread or even with a through-hole. The fastener consists of a sleeve, as slide and optionally a metallic insert, which can be selected according to the application.

MM-Welding LiteWWeigth Double Pin
  • For connection into lightweight sandwich panels made of aramid, polypropylene, and more
  • Nomex honeycomb panels for aerospace applications: In aerospace industry, certification is crucial for the acceptance of each part. The LiteWWeight® Double Pin includes standard materials for aerospace, and is an ideal replacement for gluing where material content complicates the certification process.
  • Polypropylen honeycomb panels: Internal cavities of polypropylen honeycomb panels make it difficult to install standard connectors such as screws as they don’t have a structure to hold on to. The LiteWWeight Double Pin® is designed to attach strongly to this type of material, and if necessary allows the inclusion of a metallic thread.
MM-Welding LiteWWeigth Double Pin
  • High versatility: can contain a clearance hole, a threaded hole or a metallic insert (M3 to M8)
  • Quick installation process time of < 0.7 seconds
  • High strength due to creating form lock to top-layer and conventional weld-connection to bottom-layer
  • Full integration in substrate possible
  • Pull-out forces of higher around ~ 2000 N can be achieved through deep integration into HCB material

  • InWWerse® Fastener
  • Applications
