Taxonomy: Mechanical Joining


Mechanical joining processes join workpieces together through a mechanical means.


Overview of Process

Mechanical joining processes are designed to join workpieces together into one coherent workpiece. This joining is performed primarily by mechanical means.


Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
