Modern composite materials are increasingly used in the sheet metal fabricating industry, especially in the automotive sector. Future joining and assembling technologies are absolutely necessary to handle the multi-material combinations that occur. The paper focuses on the development of a new riveting technology. An innovative robot guided riveting tool has also been designed. Several further applications seem to be possible, e.g., clinching, blind riveting, screwing and friction-stir spot welding. Design matters are discussed as well as real test results. An immediate application of this flexible joining system is planned especially for small and medium sized businesses.
