Patent Number: 6,296,418

Title: Device for fastening a working part to a beam of an auto body

Abstract: In the mounting of working parts, especially the vehicle's axles, it is difficult to weld on the female threaded parts. To overcome this problem, the female threaded part is configured as an internally threaded stud. This stud is passed through a bore disposed in the lower flange of the beam. A flange fixedly attached to the stud is spot-welding to a cage whose walls are spot-welded to the upper and lower flanges of the beam. The welding procedure is thereby greatly simplified.
