In-Die Installation

PROFIL® offers customers the ability to install our Mechanically Attached Fasteners (MAF) directly in their press lines for a fully automated solution. Benefits include:

  • Fully automatic placement utilizing progressive dies, transfer tools or automated press lines
  • Particularly cost-effective for high volume production, as the fasteners are conveyed through tubing by a multiple channel sorting and feeding device into the pierce heads
  • Efficient – One or several fasteners are being fixed in place with each stroke

Progressive Die

Progressive die operations are very typical in the automotive space, as they enable quick production of parts with strict tolerances. PROFIL® works with our customers to integrate seamlessly within this fast-paced stamping environment, ensuring that our mechanically attached fasteners are installed in-line, saving time and eliminating secondary operations.
