RIVSET® self-pierce riveting is a process for a high strength mechanical joining of similar or combinations of materials whereby several layers can be joined without problem.
- Suitable for visual inspection
- Reproducible, no pre-drilling
- Watertight and airtight
- For joining metallic and non-metallic materials
- For fastening dissimilar metals
- For various thicknesses of material
- For various strengths of material
All manufacturing industry has to join materials together. The importance and use of mechanical joining methods has increased significantly in recent years.
- No pre-drilling
- Especially approvite for hybrid joining
- High dynamic fastness
- Force and form-fit
The trend is towards the use of lightweight assemblies, galvanised and coated steels, high strenght steels, aluminium and plastics and combinations of these materials.
Particularly in the sheet-metal industry, RIVSET® self-pierce riveting has turned out to be very promising as an alternative and/or an addition to the previously dominating joining methods.
Material layers are joined by a hardened semi-tubular rivet in a single step with no pre-drilling, little noise and no emissions, producing an interlocked friction joint. The rivet is designed to penetrate through the top material and is spread under the influence of a die positioned below the lower material. As this lower material is not pierced the resulting joint is localised and impervious to gas and liquid.
