What exactly is rivet/blind rivet technology?
GESIPA® makes it clear
Blind rivet studs
GESIPA® blind rivet studs are fasteners that combine blind rivet nuts and screws, providing an alternative to welding studs and press-in studs from a technological and financial point of view.
Blind rivet studs have two functions. On the one hand, they join thin materials even if they are different (e.g. sheet metal and plastic).
On the other hand, with the reliably and permanently fixed screw, they provide an additional fastening point or a positioning aid. Different dimensions, materials and head shapes cover a wide range of applications. In addition to the standard range, application-specific applications are possible.
