Joining Components By Induction, pt. 2

November 1st, 2010

Compared with brazing and soldering, adhesive bonding is much more versatile because the components to be joined do not have to be metals. Plastics, ceramics, glasses, and other nonmetallic materials also can be bonded. The adhesive, which is applied prior to induction heating, is not electrically conductive, so it cannot be heated by induction. Therefore, at least one of the components to be joined should be electrically conductive. (If a multicomponent structure is being assembled, several of its components should be conductive.) The adhesive will be heated via thermal conduction from the electrically conductive, in- duction heated component in contact with it. (Note: In some bonding applications, pressure also must be applied to the components being joined.)
