Technological products are undergoing a continuous evolution, which, in many cases, require new materials and material combinations. In turn, these novel material concepts require their own special joining technology. Although classical joining methods can frequently be adapted, there are often drawbacks connected with these adaptions. Novel joining processes, such as Laser Beam Welding in Vacuum, MIG-Brazing of aluminium to steel or novel technologies for bonding steel to fiber-reinforced plastics aim at overcoming existing price or design limits and also at providing engineers with new possibilities for challenging future products. 7 Ref., 16 Fig.
