Rivet joints are often used when the construction does not have to be completely tight, when the costs have to be kept down or when it needs to go fast.
Several options of rivet joints
Rivet joints can be seen as an alternative to, for example, welding. It is often used when the construction does not have to be completely tight, when the costs have to be kept down or when it needs to go fast. The rivet joints that Plåt & Mekano Romator can offer are:
Pop riveting – Rivets are available in aluminum, steel, and stainless steel. With tools, the rivets are pushed into holes and the shafts are deformed at the back into a tumor that holds the structure together. There are hilly or sunken pop rivets. They fit well in galvanized sheet metal, aluminum, and stainless steel, for example.
Henrob riveting – A loose rivet is used in a machine that at the same time both makes the hole and pushes the rivet into the plates and then deforms the rivet so that it remains.The method can be used in thinner materials and when, for example, welding is not suitable. This type of riveting fits well in zinc-plated sheet metal.
Tox riveting – In this method, two materials are pressed together with tools so that the rivet is formed by the materials creating a rivet, without making holes in the plate, which means that the plates are held together. Toxing fits best in thinner materials and is used to advantage in galvanized sheets where welding is not suitable.
