Title: METHOD FOR PRODUCING A COMPONENT CONNECTION AND COMPONENT CONNECTION PRODUCED ACCORDING TO SAID METHOD
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for producing a component connection, the method comprising the following steps: providing a metal sheet (1); producing a through-hole (2) in the metal sheet, wherein at least one rim portion or the entire peripheral rim of the through-hole is bent towards a side of the metal sheet, as a result of which at least one clamping collar-like element (3, 3') is created; providing an additional component (4), from which a spherical or spheroidal element (4a) projects; inserting the spherical or spheroidal element from the side of the metal sheet located opposite the at least one clamping collar-like element into the through-hole such that the spherical or spheroidal element at least partially projects from the through-hole on the side of the at least one clamping collar-like element. On the side of the at least one clamping collar-like element of the metal sheet, a welding seam surrounding the projecting part of the spherical or spheroidal element in a ring-like manner is generated, by way of which the spherical or spheroidal element, and thus the additional component is cohesively connected to the metal sheet, and/or wherein the additional component is adhesively bonded with the metal sheet.
