Project: High frequency welding to join plastic fabrics to metal for lightweight membrane structures

Acronym FORFLEXX (Reference Number: 11998)
Duration 01/03/2018
Project Topic To develop a high frequency (HF) welding method that makes it possible to join plastic fabrics (such as PVC and PU) to metal. Initial tests have shown that the method can produce applications for tensile fabric structures 10-15 times faster and create bonds that are tighter, stronger and better looking compared with existing joining methods. We will establish a subsidiary company with a pre-treatment plant in full swing in 2023 with 25-50 employees.
