Title (EN) SECURING A SECOND OBJECT TO A FIRST OBJECT
(FR) FIXATION D'UN SECOND OBJET À UN PREMIER OBJET
Abstract:
(EN) According to an aspect of the invention, a method of anchoring a connector in a first object is provided, wherein the first object comprises a low density layer that comprises an arrangement of discrete elements and gas-filled (empty) spaces between the discrete elements. The method includes providing the connector, the connector having a liquefiable material that is liquefiable by mechanical vibration, such as a thermoplastic material, bringing the connector into contact with the low density layer, pressing the connector against the low density layer and coupling mechanical vibration energy into the connector to cause the connector to penetrate into the low density layer to deform the discrete elements, until a flow portion of the liquefiable material becomes flowable and is caused to interpenetrate spaces between the deformed discrete elements so that an intertwined structure of the liquefiable material and the deformed discrete elements results, and stopping the mechanical vibration energy and causing the flow portion to re-solidify to anchor the connector in the low density layer.
(FR) Un aspect de l'invention concerne un procédé d'ancrage d'un connecteur dans un premier objet, le premier objet comprenant une couche de faible densité qui comprend un agencement d'éléments discrets et d'espaces remplis de gaz (vides) entre les éléments discrets. Le procédé comprend la fourniture du connecteur, le connecteur comprenant un matériau liquéfiable qui est liquéfiable par vibration mécanique, tel qu'un matériau thermoplastique, la mise en contact du connecteur avec la couche de faible densité, la pression du connecteur contre la couche de faible densité et le couplage de l'énergie de vibration mécanique dans le connecteur pour amener le connecteur à pénétrer dans la couche de faible densité pour déformer les éléments discrets, jusqu'à ce qu'une partie d'écoulement du matériau liquéfiable devienne fluidifiable et soit amenée à pénétrer dans des espaces entre les éléments discrets déformés de sorte qu'une structure entrelacée du matériau liquéfiable et des éléments discrets déformés soit obtenue, et l'arrêt de l'énergie de vibration mécanique et la resolidification de la partie d'écoulement pour son ancrage au connecteur dans la couche de faible densité.
