Product Details Supplier Info More products

Gesipa Blind Riveting Systems has provided a dual-purpose fastener design for a major supplier to the automotive industry. Gesipa supplied a specially designed M6 rivet nut stud to meet the needs of this OEM application.

The original need was for a fastener to assemble an aluminium extrusion to the vehicle. Another fastener was already being used by the customer to clamp the spacer to this aluminium extrusion.

Gesipa analysed the customer’s requirements and suggested a single-part replacement in the form of its M6 rivet nut stud, fulfilling both fastening needs at the same time.

The supplied M6 rivet nut stud was manufactured in steel with a 5.8mm grip range.

Key benefits of product application

  • The Gesipa product replaced the need for two distinct fasteners in the same application.
  • The product enabled a lower in-place cost.
  • The stronger clamp force and higher load-bearing capacity of the fastener provided a guaranteed and secure joint.
  • The bespoke rivet nut stud provided an easier, neater and quicker installation option.
  • By reducing total production and installation times by approximately 50 per cent, the Gesipa solution resulted in a significant cost-saving opportunity for the customer.
