Piercing and riveting process

1. Position component material above die. Feed fasteners to be pierced into the tools provided by PROFIL.

2. The support fastener is pushed through the component material by means of axial motion.

3. The specific geometry of the die is used to form the rivet shaft around the punched component material so as to result in a form-fitting and friction-locking connection.

4. The slug is securely fixed in the riveting area of the fastener.
