Self-clinching & Piercing Solutions


At Bossard, we believe that our holistic view, Proven Productivity, is key to getting ahead with you, through developing solutions that are more efficient and cost-effective. 

In the wake of modern industrial changes, thinner and lighter components such as metal plates, PC boards or plastic pieces are increasingly used due to ever growing demands from consumers. While trying to achieve secure assemblies with high torqueout and pull-out performance, manufacturers are also looking into ways to simplify the process and ensuring cost savings. A great way is looking into the design phase of the assembly by reducing the number of fasteners required, leading to fewer process steps in the final assembly. Self-clinching solutions ensure secure assemblies while being easy to install. This leads to cost savings due to reduced fasteners cost as well as shorter assembly times.

Bossard portfolio of self-clinching & piercing solutions are able to meet the different industrial requirements. From thin sheet metal to heavy duty applications, our range of product solutions allow us to meet individual customers’ requirements. Using our broad portfolio and technical expertise, we support our customers from design to mass production, reducing costs and increasing competitiveness.
