Considering Remanufacture and other End-of-Life Options in Selection of Fastening and Joining Methods

  title={Considering Remanufacture and other End-of-Life Options in Selection of Fastening and Joining Methods},
  author={L. H. Shu},
This paper emphasizes remanufacturing as an end-of-life option and the effects of fastening and joining methods on remanufacture. Three case studies describe examples of fastening and joining that facilitate assembly and recycling but impede remanufacturing. To i l lustrate the impact of fastening choices on remanufacture relative to other life-cycle concerns, the development of a computer tool that estimates the effects of fastening and jo in ing cho ices on manufac ture , assembly… CONTINUE READING
