Body in White Fasteners

Body in White (BIW), which is the main frame of the vehicle that has been joined together using different types of joining processes. The attachment to this structure has many different demands and will usually require high-strength fasteners that are corrosion resistant and are easy to assemble and disassemble. To meet those requirements, we offer the following types of fasteners:

Weld Nuts & Studs

Through welding, metal fasteners such as weld studs, weld pins, and threaded studs and weld nuts are joined to another metal object through an arc at the speed of lightning. The process can be highly automated and depending on the type of welding it can only requires access to one side of the material.

PEM® Large Diameter Clinching

Hardened clinch fasteners increase thread strength and produce clean assemblies. The fasteners can either be installed In-DIE during the forming process or offline using a C-Frame. There are no thermal stresses even with the high resistance to push and torque outs. The resulting clean work environment reduces any concerns about the environment.

Self-Piercing Technology, Flow Drill Screws

These fasteners combine drilling and thread forming to increase the speed of one-sided assembly, which drops to less than one minute. Because the rivets are self-piercing, the material experiences no heat zones during installation. The flow drill screws are highly resistant to vibration and loosening torque.

Structural Blind Rivets

Because they stand out as a strong solution for structural assembly, these fasteners are excellent for high-tensile applications. Only one side is needed for access and one fastener can accommodate up to four rivets with large diameters. The result is an attachment that is both durable and reliable.
