Rivet ties are inseparable joinings, which are inserted to connect sheet metal parts and steel beams. Typical examples for rivet technology are steel bridges, shipbuilding and aircraf construction. You put a rivet ( a plastical deformable usually cylindrical fastener) in two overlaped components with parallel bedding bore holes.
With heat and suitable tools you perform the revet by compressing the rivet with action of force.
Rivet material is from steel, brass, copper, titan, aluminum alloy as well as plastic.
Kind of rivets are :
- Full rivet
- Hollow rivet
- Blind rivet
- Semi tubular rivet
- Punch rivet
The classic kind of rivets: the full rivet lost on importance during the last years and is today mainly used for the reconstruction of protected historic building elements.
Blind rivet technology is nowadays the most important riveting process. Blind rivets are mainly used for car manufacturing and ventilation technology. The blind rivet is characterized by low costs, high productivity and flexible application possibilities. Even if the process of the blind rivet is similar to the full rivet, the design and manipulation is totally different. The blind rivet consists from two parts, rivet body and mandrel. The special shape of the rivet allows only as fastening with the components from one side of the rivet. The blind rivet gets inserted into the drill hole of the component and manipulated by the hand riveter. In that way the mandrel gets pulled out of the rivet body with the hand riveter and by plastic reshaping a closing head arises from the rivet body. Blind rivets from our online shop are available in different material qualities and diameters. A classical advancement are blind rivet nuts and the sealed blind rivets.
There are also further developments of the hand riveter like hand riveters with battery, compressed air and hydraulic drive in our online shop available.
