Assembly of electric and other lightweight vehicles increasingly requires joining of new materials, more complex structures and mixed compounds. An effective solution is flow drill fastening, a method suitable for multiple layers of similar and mixed materials, steel and aluminum.
A main advantage of flow drill fastening is that only one-sided access is required. Used mainly in body shop applications in the automotive industry, the technique utilizes a fastener as both drill and joining element – an efficient and flexible joining technology.
