A rivet is pressed into a single- or multi-layered, pre-drilled component.
Orbital rivet-ball stud for a multiple-joint hinge
The protruding rivet collar is deformed in an orbital movement by a rivet head with high axial power. With this process, it is not only possible to connect several components but also to position highly loadable function elements that must for example withstand lateral load (e.g. ball studs).
