GAMING ENGINEERING is the new player specialized in the design & manufacturing of multi-material fasteners for industrial series applications. The activity of the company mainly focuses on the development of innovative solutions adapted to the new expectations of high-volume markets, more particularly automotive industry and high pressure die casting parts, for cost & CO2 efficiency.
For joining castings to body in white, GAMING ENGINEERING has developed the ERWin®, a simple multi-material joining solution, to integrate light weight parts on steel or aluminium structures, keeping the standard spot-welding equipment of the car makers.
This ERWin® insert is first punched into the lightweight part without pre-hole; then, the lightweight part can be welded to steel or aluminium.
The technology is robust to current process variations (electrodes offsets, wall thickness variations). Also, because the concept is to punch though the casting and not to deform the Aluminium alloy with the fastener, ERWin® can be used on low ductility alloys offering interesting CO2 reduction potentials removing the heat treatment or using recycled materials.
