Spin-Pull Technology Enables Automated Clinch-Nut Installation on Closed Profiles
Spin-pull technology from MDS | Autoriv, reportedly in use at several OEMs, enables automated installation of clinch and rivet nuts in one-sided sheet metal-joining positions, such as with closed profiles. In addition, metal formers can use the process with thicker metal sheets by combining the clinch nut with a washer or spacer, reportedly a superior process to using blind rivet nuts, say company officials, who note that joints created with the spin-pull process can withstand higher forces from any load direction. The technology offers a new approach for handling closed profiles without opening them and affecting the stability of the workpiece.
