BalTec lever with ball stud

Lever with ball stud

Ball or rivet studs DIN 71803 form B are fasteners for various applications especially in the automotive sector. In the course of process optimization, the complex welding process was replaced by radial riveting.

The ball stud was previously welded due to poor axial accessibility.

Since radial riveting requires considerably less force, it was possible to use a C-punch to bypass the interfering contour. Reworking and thermal influences are now a thing of the past.
