Self-piercing Rivet System

The Fastriv® self-piercing system is a simple, clean and efficient method of joining sheet metal components without the need for pre-punched or pre-drilled holes. Fastriv self-piercing rivets may be used for joining similar or dissimilar sheet materials. Assembly is achieved by driving a self-piercing, semi tubular fastener into the materials to be joined. A joint made with Fastriv fasteners is both leak proof and has a very high degree of joint integrity. In addition, the joint has higher dynamic strength in comparison to a spot welded joint. For these reasons it is predicted that at least 30 % of situations where spot welding is employed can be replaced beneficially by self-piercing.
