Italian term or phrase: abbottonatura
The context is a patent relating to a metal forming machine:

...una testata idraulica ... realizzata per ottenere sulle lamiere in lavorazione una serie di lavorazioni tra le quali:
la punzonatura, l'imbutitura o bugnatura, la sballatura e l'abbottonatura o saldatura a freddo.

I found only one suggestion online, for 'buttoning' ma non mi convince per niente....

You will see this term with regard to all types of buttoning and fastening (clothes for example) but for metal, I think fastening is better than buttoning.
