Recently I read an older publication from the early 2000's about BASF developing a new way of joining plastic and metal components. They called it "collar joining". here is the link http://www.basf.de/basf2/html/plastics/englisch/pa... It seems to be a good alternative to heat staking or insert molding metal components. Other than this article and a few others this is all i found on the subject. Has anyone tried this or have any experience with this manufacturing technique? I would like to try this but I want to know what are some of the challenges/limitations associated with it first.
