Fast Live Shows That All's Weld With Lightweighting

As automotive OEMs continue their drive towards the ultimate combination of lightness, structural strength and durability, news has emerged that FAST Live exhibitor Telsonic has been leading the way with light weight joining on the new Skoda Kamiq.

Rather than use mechanical fasteners, Skoda engineers reflected on the advantages offered by ultrasonic welding in a number of applications, and the result was that some key parts on the new model are joined using this process from Telsonic. Included amongst these are airflow components for the intake and thin-wall welding on bumper reinforcement structures. The advantages of ultrasonic welding across all applications can be discussed on the Telsonic stand at FAST Live on March 12th.


FAST Live is the UK’s only dedicated fastening, joining and assembly focused exhibition, and offers visitors a unique opportunity to meet and talk with some of the most experienced fastening, bonding and assembly application specialists.
