Spin-Blind-Riveting – A New Joining Technology for Hybrid Components
Hybrid components made of metals and fibre reinforced plastics (FRP) need new joining technologies which are suitable for all used materials. At the Technische Universität Chemnitz, Spin-Blind-Riveting (SBR) was developed, a hybrid process which combines blind-riveting, flow drilling and hole moulding. SBR is suitable for FRP, metals and has no need of predrilling. In this paper different material combinations made of aluminium, magnesium and FRP are joint by SBR. Mechanical tests show higher strength than conventional blind-riveting and macro sections show only slight damage to the FRP. It can be said that SBR is a high promising technology to join hybrid components.
