Fastening System

The painted Fas-Ner System is a simple punch-and-die operation that automatically feeds, punches, inserts, and locks the self-piercing Fas-Ner to produce a solid joint in one high-cycle operation.

An alternative to spot welding and riveting, the system can also join dissimilar metals and thicknesses. The color of a Fas-Ner is matched to the color of the painted assembly, eliminating postpaint operations. Systems range from a single hit machine to complex machines, such as an automated turnkey system, including insertion into main production lines with the assistance of machine integrators.
