RIVNUT®

Processing systems for blind rivet nuts and studs

 

Threads for thin-walled components

RIVNUT® blind rivet nuts and RIVSTUD® blind rivet studs are a versatile solution for fastening a load-bearing nut or bolt thread to thin-walled components where cut threads are not an option.

For optimum processing, we offer a wide choice of tools – from manual to automated.

This product is made by Böllhoff

Method / principle

RIVNUT® blind rivet nuts and RIVSTUD® blind rivet studs make it possible to create internal and external threads on thin-walled components. These elements are mounted without counter pressure ("blindly") and can therefore also be set at hollow sections.

Applications

RIVNUT® blind rivet nuts and RIVSTUD® blind rivet studs are hugely versatile. They are used, for example, in the automotive industry, rail engineering, medical technology, electrical engineering, the solar industry and in industrial kitchens.

Product benefits
  • Load-bearing thread on thin-walled components
  • Assembly with access from only one side (blind assembly)
  • Flexible use in every stage of production
  • The workpiece is not exposed to thermal stress
  • Minimal cost of investment
  • Assembly systems, tools and products from a single source – from manual to automated

Detailed description

 

Setting using the example of the spindle lifting procedure

Here the RIVNUT® blind rivet nut or RIVSTUD® blind rivet stud is spun on, compressed and then spun off.

Setting a RIVNUT® blind rivet nut or RIVSTUD® blind rivet stud using the example of the spindle lifting procedure

Setting using the example of the spindle stroke process

1) Spin on
2) Insert
3) Upset
4) Spin off

Process technology

 

Stroke setting method

The product tables in our RIVNUT® catalogues serve as a guideline for adjusting the setting stroke S to be used with a particular RIVNUT® blind rivet nut or RIVSTUD® blind rivet stud to ensure optimal riveting.

The advantage is a fast and simple process.

 

 

Pressure setting method

In the pressure setting method, the riveting tool generates its maximum setting force over the entire operating range. Consequentially, in some cases the tool setting causes blind rivet nuts and studs to be fastened too tightly or too loosely, due to different component thicknesses.

This phenomenon is prevented with the pressure setting method, since the riveting force is generated and controlled independently of the workpiece thickness.

Advantages: Optimised riveting in workpieces of differing thickness and repeated setting of a RIVNUT® is possible. In force-controlled riveting, the service life of the mandrels increases.
