Radial riveting technology

Basically, the application determines the procedure.

In most cases however, where high-quality joints are demanded, the radial riveting technology is the appropriate procedure due to the low cyle time, the little force needed and the high quality results obtained.

The riveting peen describes a rose-petal path. The rivet is deformed in three directions. Radially outwards, radially inwards and overlying also tangentially.

Excellent surface structure of the closing head: With the Radial riveting process, the tool itself does not rotate. The friction between tool and work-piece is thus at a minimum. The result is an excellent surface structure.

Low workpiece loading: Even bakelite or ceramic parts can be riveted. Lateral forces are negligible. Clamping is usually unnecessary.

Tangential riveting: is a form of radial riveting, only that the path of the riveting peen does not lead through the middle. This riveting is used in special cases.

On the video clips below you can see very clear that the riveting tool is not rotating – in contrast to the orbital riveting.
