The AKH FAS-NER® system allows users to insert a painted fastener directly into pre-painted metal. The color is matched allowing for the elimination of post-paint operations, says the company. The system is a simple punch and die operation, which automatically feeds, punches, inserts, and locks the self-piercing fastener to produce a solid joint.
