Through the process of metal adhesive bonding and adhesive joining services, photo-etched parts are joined into simple or complex assemblies. Adhesively bonded components can be manufactured from titanium, copper, aluminum, brass, iron-nickel alloys, and Kapton, are suitable for medical, aerospace, filtration, automotive, and defense applications. Adhesive bonding enables bonding of chemically etched parts without mechanical fasteners, which in turn enhances surface finish and appearance of the bonded components.
Metal adhesive bonding joins similar or dissimilar metals and is suitable for irregularly shaped components. Little or no increase in assembly weight occurs in adhesive joining, and stresses are distributed evenly over the joined area.
To avoid contamination during metal fabrication, adhesive bonding operations are performed at VACCO’s in-house facility clean room, accredited to FED-STD-209 Class 10,000 standards. VACCO’s South El Monte, CA facility is also equipped with NVR (Non-Volatile Residue) and central laboratories to handle testing, pre-inspection, final cleaning, and sealing operations.
