The Best of Award in the category Process at the 18th MATERIALICA Design + Technology Award 2020 went to Continental / JoinPlas. Based on an existing coupling concept, the JoinPlas GmbH developed a modular coupling system for the automotive industry. The solution needs only one basis coupling head for each dimension and then only the spigot interface. The coupling head orientation can variable adjusted within the assembly and welding process. All process steps are monitored with cameras and/or other features. The variable coupling head orientation will support the unlock function in case of services in tight space areas for different applications. Furthermore, the optimized basic design will save rough 15 percent of the plastic material.
