bigHead bonding technology on display at Advanced Engineering UK

bigHead Bonding Fasteners, a leading producer of bonding fasteners for composite applications, returns this year to Advanced Engineering 2016 to help manufacturers and integrators of composite products realise their design ideas.

The company’s design engineers, as well as sales and technical teams, will be on hand to discuss new or existing applications, with the emphasis firmly on providing engineering solutions, where innovative form and function and associated production costs are not compromised or restricted by component fastening.

Bonding technologies

In the past year bighead has successfully secured a KTP funded project with Cranfield University’s Composites Centre for developing fastening solutions for high-volume manufacture of lightweight composite components for the automotive industry.

The project is now well underway and visitors to Advanced Engineering 2016 can explore new assembly techniques to precision-fix bigHeads using specialist dry adhesives that can be scaled from small quantities to fully automated high-volume production.

bigHeads can be surface bonded using other agents or directly embedded in components and panels using injection or SMC moulding processes, and all these technologies will be covered at the exhibition.

Anniversary

As bigHead celebrates its 50th year, visitors to the show can also discover how bigHeads have evolved as an enabling component.

“From its beginnings as the original fastening solution for discrete thin-panel and composite fixing, with its distinctive flat perforated head design with numerous fixing options, the design versatility of the bigHead has migrated beyond its original concept – tracking advances in materials technology and offering innovative fastening solutions that can be applied to countless manufacturing techniques,” the company explains.
