SORPAS® 2D.joining

We are happy to announce that the new module of SORPAS® 2D.joining is now ready to be released!

Based on the same concept as SORPAS® 2D.welding, we are not only making a nice looking simulation, but devoted to create a handy software tool that can help every engineer to make as many simulations as they need, quickly and easily!

SORPAS® 2D.joining provides an easy learned software that simulates joining with several solutions like riveting, self-piercing riveting (SPR), clinching, blind riveting, and joining with adhesive.

The standard database provides you with commonly used materials and some rivets. We work with suppliers to implement further details on rivets, but you can also add the exact rivets that you use into the database.

SPR - self piercing riveting
