Your modules – our joining solutions

Joining technology is essential for the domestic appliance industry, as the joints ensure the reliable functionality, durability and safety of the devices. A large number of materials and components from various sectors such as electronics, mechanics and plastics technology are often integrated into these devices. Depending on the specific requirements and properties of the components, various fastening and assembly solutions are used.

  • Exterior


    The exterior defines the appearance and functionality of the devices. It includes the outer shell, colours, surface finish and design of the devices. Our joining solutions enable you to compensate for tolerances or create invisible connections.

    We can provide you with the right solution for every requirement.

  • Display and operating components

    Display and operating components

     Depending on the type of domestic appliance, operating elements can vary and consist of different components such as buttons, rotary knobs, switches or touchscreens. Electronic controls are often used, which enable precise and reliable control of the various functions. Depending on the requirements of the components, different joining techniques are used to ensure safe and secure operation.

    We will be happy to advise you on choosing the right solution.

  • Mechanical components

    Mechanical components

    Mechanical components in household appliances include gears, belts, bearings, springs, switches and levers. For example, in a washing machine, gears and belts control the movement of the drum and the drive motor.  They can be made of various materials such as metal, plastic or rubber and are often constructed to be robust and durable.

    We can help you find the right joining solution for every material.

  • Drive components

    Drive components

    As a rule, electric motors are the drive systems used to provide the energy required to operate the appliances. These drive systems are capable of producing different speeds and torques to meet the specific requirements of each device. Efficient and reliable drive technology can help to save energy and extend the service life of appliances. Intelligent joining solutions are essential to ensure this.
