Joining sheet metal

Sheet metal components frequently consist of numerous parts that need to be joined.

Depending on the material, its thickness and the requirements, the designer must select the suitable methods from the variety of joining techniques: Screwing, riveting, welding, soldering, gluing, clipping, clinching, folding or Tox clinching. There are a variety of special welding procedures for sheet metal that produce different weld seams, etc.
