Opposites combined: special bi-metals from Wieland

How can two metals with very different material properties be combined?

Wieland provides a new solution: special bi-metals which combine two firmly joined materials – even if the properties of both materials are such dissimilar that they cannot be joined together by conventional processes.

These bi-metals are primarily applied in the electrical and automotive sectors and wherever two metals with very dissimilar properties are required. The joining of aluminum and steel, as well as the joining of high-strength materials with ductile metals also belong to the application field of these special bi-metals from Wieland.

Customers obtain the prefabricated material compounds as semi-finished products and components from Wieland for further processing and do not have to carry out a demanding joining process themselves. This operation is a highly specialized process called laser cladding and is carried out directly at the semi-finished and components manufacturer Wieland.

Do you need to combine opposites for your application?

Please do not hesitate to contact us.
