Mechanical spot-joining methods such as self-pierce riveting (SPR) enable the use of different material combinations in vehicle design. The SPR technique provides a robust joint that often outperforms clinching and spot welding under both static and fatigue conditions, while providing fast cycle times and zero waste.
