Application example

Manufacturing of an instrument panel carrier for an OEM platform

autoriv fasteners automation system solutions instrument panel carrier automotive application example

We provide the following components for the manufacturing of the instrument panel carrier:

  • Clinch fasteners and special designed fasteners
  • Automation modules - feeders and setting heads

The fasteners are automatically fed and assembled in-die in a single-stage process.

  • Transfer-die modules for automated assembly of nuts and spacers
  • Turn-key final assembly equipment for the assembly of the instrument panel carrier. The process includes full process monitoring, complete documentation and traceability.

The system is currently used in six countries in North America, Europe and Asia.
