The nominal tensile strength for this group of welded studs is 650 MPa, which is a much higher tensile strength than the conventional weld studs
. The overall welded stud height is 200 mm for all the specimens.
Standard or custom (and customer standard) types of rivets are offered, including Blind (POP) designs, Tubular & Semi-Tubular, Solid Rivets, Rivet Nuts, Rivet Bushes, Self-Clinching Studs, Weld Studs
and Self-Clinching Nuts.
The weld studs
that mount the front and rear side-impact airbags are prone to fracture and separate from the module during deployment, making the cars non-compliant with federal safety regulations.
The studs clinch permanently into thin metal sheets to provide fastening solutions and alternatives to weld studs
for applications where high strength attachment may be required.
