Fixing a PCB in a plastic housing
In order to meet the requirements for weight and cost reduction and extended functionalities the use of plastic components in the automotive industry is growing. Autonomous driving and the electrification of the powertrain have increased the number of electronic and sensor products in cars. Each electronic contains a printed circuit board (PCB) and fixing a PCB in a plastic housing by means of heat staking is clean, cost-effective, precise and today state of the art.
bdtronic has introduced advanced heat staking, or hot riveting, technology with BHS HOT AIR®, BHS HOT JET®, and BHS HOT STAMP® methods. Our approach is to control all relevant variables such as temperature, force, time and displacement. This ensures consistent high rivet strength and results.
