Self-Piercing Fasteners

July 13, 2006
Painted Fas-ners insert into prepainted metals, eliminating secondary painting.

The Fas-ner color is matched to the painted assembly and is self-piercing. It joins dissimilar metals and thicknesses, and eliminates the need for spot welding and riveting. A simple punchanddie operation feeds, punches, inserts, and locks fasteners in a single, high-cycle operation.
