Abstract
Höganäs AB is asking for a way to attach Somaloy® components onto aluminum in electric motors. Gluing, Crimping and Clamping are the attachment methods that are investigated.
For the Gluing part, tensile tests are made at different temperatures. The tests are performed with six different adhesive combinations on aluminum and two separate Somaloy® materials. The adhesive’s ability to attach onto the different sides of the Somaloy® component is also investigated.
The Crimping part is performed with an aluminum housing and a Somaloy® component. The housing is heated until expansion and the Somaloy® component is placed inside. When the objects are cooled down, the component is pressed out.
The Clamping part is only performed as... (More)

The Crimping part is performed with an aluminum housing and a Somaloy® component. The housing is heated until expansion and the Somaloy® component is placed inside. When the objects are cooled down, the component is pressed out.
The Clamping part is only performed as calculations.
The results show that it is possible to attach Somaloy® components with the use of different adhesives, such as the epoxy, Permabond ES550. The tested adhesives are more willing to attach to the punch side of the component. Crimping can be used, but it should be noted that the method has been tested only at room temperature. Clamping is also an alternative for attaching the components; however, the design of the component would have to be remade to obtain a wider clamping edge. Moreover, only calculations and no testing were performed on the clamping method. (Less)
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
Bilindustrin förändras! Många tror att den bil vi känner idag, med en taktfast förbränningsmotor under huven, snart är ett minne blott. Vi blickar då framåt till en värld där elbilar fyller våra gator. För många är detta glädjande besked men för den världsledande järnpulverproducenten, Höganäs AB, innebär det en omställning i produktionslinjerna. Deras järnpulver, som tidigare byggt upp dessa förbränningsmotorer, måste nu omförädlas och appliceras på andra sätt. Höganäs vill nu visa sina kunder att det går att bygga effektiva elmotorer med deras eget material, Somaloy®. Men för att göra detta behöver de först veta hur man kan fästa Somaloy® mot elmotorns bas gjord av Aluminium.
