Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I do not see how car makers could use this ?  

 

Scientists develop method to weld metal to GLASS in breakthrough that could revolutionize the way cars are manufactured

  • New method relies on pulses of infrared light last only a few picoseconds
  • This measure of time is to a second what a second is compared to 30,000 years 
  • By focusing laser through material between two parts, they created melt region 
  • Scientists say the new technique is a major breakthrough for manufacturing

Interesting,  windshield and back-light attached with out sealer .

 

No extra metal flanges could reduce some weight. 

More rigid structure, that is just outer body consideration.

 

Likely a lot of uses!

Just don't break a windshield.  How do you replace it.  Just another step towards our cars becoming appliances.

Right, field replacement is always important. Imagine comprehensive insurance coverage rates if the whole car had to e replaced when the windshield cracks!
