What is the future of manufacturing and joining technology? Using joining technology, the connections between metals and/or plastics should achieve "perfect" adhesion, and therefore should only be separated by a cohesive fracture. At the same time, the procedure should be carried out quickly and flexibly. "Nanoscale sculpturing” is such a procedure. It can be easily used anywhere - even instead of welding - and allows metals to be joined to any plastics. Such procedures also play a major role in additive manufacturing, and enable novel material combinations.

Metal injection moulding is a pioneering additive manufacturing technology with which titanium parts can be produced very flexibly. The combination of these two technologies is pursued under the framework of the polytitanium project. These new procedures will be explained using different metals and plastics, and the potential applications for manufacturing and joining technology discussed.
