Defects in focus
In the automotive industry, bonding has become a key technology that is increasingly replacing other joining technologies. Both engine and body parts are bonded, and for good reason: bonded cars generally perform better in crash tests than welded cars - provided the quality of the components and bonded areas is flawless. Modern adhesive systems have thus become a safety factor in the automotive industry. For manufacturers, the reliability of the quality control of industrial parts of all kinds is crucial, because defective parts due to non-conformity have serious effects on production performance.
