Abstract

The automotive industry is characterized by rapid development, which is the largest effort devoted to maximum production optimization. The article deals with problematics of hemmed joints in the automotive industry when main objective is to reduce production price while maintaining sufficient quality products. During joining two or more sheets of metal plates together is the greatest challenge to ensure dimensional stability of sheet metal parts, which can move against each other. This negative effect can occur during other stages of production, especially during installation, when parts may not be correctly aligned. In the article you can find new innovative solution that should meet these requirements.
