Technologies for the Mechanical Joining of Aluminum Die Castings
This paper shows a comparison of existing self-pierce riveting technologies with the newly developed self-pierce riveting with solid formable rivet (SPR-SF) for the joining of Aluminum die casts. The challenges during the mechanical joining of the Aluminum die cast AlSi9Mn by different joining technologies like self-pierce riveting with semi-tubular rivet (SPR-ST), self-pierce riveting with moveable die element and semi-tubular rivet (S-SPR-ST), self-pierce riveting with solid rivet (SPR-S) and self-pierce riveting with solid formable rivet (SPR-SF) will be discussed and the joining technologies in regard to process force, interlock, shear tensile strength and top tensile strength will be analyzed.
