Joining of Steel to Titanium with Interlayers — New Paper

As manufacturers turn to multi-material designs to meet the ever-growing demands on their products, many are faced with the challenge of how to join dissimilar materials. Using traditional joining techniques, metallurgical incompatibilities of certain material combinations have greatly limited the performance and viability of many dissimilar joints. In order to achieve maximum performance from a […]

Joining of Composites to Titanium

We have had recent interest in looking at methods to join thermoplastics and thermoset composites to titanium from both the aerospace and medical communities. Generally, thermoset composites have higher temperature resistance than thermoplastic materials and must be bonded because they do not melt. Thermoplastic materials are easier to mold and will flow when heated. Therefore […]
