3M and Nordson introduce an automated bonding system
3M introduces VHB Extrudable Tape bonding solution. This bonding solution combines the benefits of 3M VHB Tapes with the versatility of a liquid adhesive.
Initially used for bonding panels to the frames of specialty vehicles like ambulances and box trucks, this new bonding solution proved superior to other methods due to its ability to distribute stress loads across an entire surface instead of concentrating stress loads around each individual fastener.
“3M VHB Extrudable Tape does things no tape or liquid adhesive could ever do”, said Patrick Meifert, global portfolio director, 3M. “It’s an entirely new category of product and bonding solution for manufacturing innovation. This bonding system creates endless design and application possibilities at scale, whether you’re a global multinational or a local manufacturing business.”
