Blind rivets for body in white applications

Blind rivets for body in white applications

Advances in materials and the "Industry 4.0" are challenging the joining technology of the automotive industry. Requirements are the control of the setting processes and the fully automation and integration of the technology in the OEM operations. The purpose is to ensure high quality of all joints as well as fast and economic processes.

With the focus on new materials in body-in-white applications and the light weighting advantages of using different materials together, Gesipa blind riveting technology provides many solutions for joining different materials, such as a mix of high-strength steel, light metal as well as carbon fibre materials.

The rivet nut and rivet nut stud technology offers easier, neater and quicker installation process by one-way access to the riveting position. They can be fitted at any stage of the build or as a secondary operation after the base material has been coated or treated. With high load bearing capacity they provide guaranteed and secure joint creating high-class threads in thin and soft materials.

GESIPA developed an aluminium blind rivet stud as a repair solution in the aluminium body, because the welding of aluminium in downstream processes is very difficult. The aluminium blind rivet studs offer a fast, easy and safe process for creating a fixing point in a thin material.
