Heat staking Verified by Europages badge

Heat staking


The riveting process creates irresolvable interlocking bonds. This is achieved by forming or reforming of thermoplastics. In most cases in this procedure only point-shaped or segmented joints are realized. In contrast to welding of two components there cannot be achieved hermetic joints. A particular version of this procedure is the bonding of plastics with metals, textiles and cardboard. The method is frequently used for wooden decoration parts, into which a chrome decoration strip has to be embedded. As a rule the hot form riveting is carried out in a one-cycle process. A heated riveting stamp forms the riveting head under pressure. After forming the stamp is shortly cooled down in order to avoid adhesion of the plastic material on the thermal riveting stamp. After this short cooling phase the riveting stamp is again moved above.
