Press-in stud with flange

Thread sizes: M5 to M10

Application area

  • These press-in and rivet studs can be universally used for component thicknesses from 0.6 to 4.0 mm and tensile strengths of up to 1200 MPa
  • Suitable for a wide range of high dynamic, static and impact load conditions
  • Suitable for use where threaded fittings need to be resistant to high axial forces
  • Also suitable for the accommodation of lateral forces
  • Can be used for GRP, CFRP, aluminium or other materials
  • Suitable for use with surface-treated, galvanised or painted components

Technical characteristics

  • Thread sizes: M5 to M10
  • FK 8 (standard)
  • Resistance to corrosion in accordance with the customerĀ“s requirements
  • No adverse effects on the joint or function of the thread; no damage due to weld spatters
  • High resistance to twist and ejection forces, even for thin sheet metals
  • Water-tight and gas-tight in reference to the requirements demanded by the automotive sector and dependent on the quality of the component material
  • Stud positioning tolerance ranges can be halved as compared to welding methods
  • Straightforward, in-process and non-destructive quality testing possible by worker instead of elaborate destructive tests

Processing steps

  • Position component above die
  • The self-piercing support fastener is pushed through the component material by means of axial motion.
  • The specific geometry of the die is used to form the rivet shaft around the hole of the component material so as to result in a form-fitting and friction-locking connection.
  • The slug is securely fixed in the riveting area of the fastener
