Common Solutions

  • Spin Riveting

    Ideal when vibration resistance is required.

  • Rivet Nuts

    Provide strong, load-bearing threads.

  • Rivets

    Economical solution when parts are to be permanently fastened together – before or after finish.

  • Self Clinching Fasteners

    Use for cosmetic appearance, better thread strength than tapped holes, or material that is too thin to tap.

  • Stud Welding

    A proven process for attaching metal studs to a workpiece through the use of an electric arc. This process does not require any predrilling or punching of holes and does not mar the opposing side of the material.
