The PCF punching elements cut their own assembly opening in the first joining process step, with the special shape of the punching die in the second process step creating a form-fitting, permanent connection between the component and the fastening section of the connecting element, which is both squeeze-proof and twist-proof. Due to the possibility of integrating the setting process into the forming process of body parts, the PCF process offers not only the technological advantages, but also a significant potential for cost savings.
