RIVSET® self-riveting technology for the joining of several materials in just one step.

RIVSET® self-pierce riveting

High-strength and reliable

Flexible multi-material design

No pre-drilling, no emissions, no noise. RIVSET® self‑pierce riveting is a joining method for creating high‑strength mechanical joints between similar and dissimilar materials. Even joining with more than two layers is possible.

Plus factors

Advantages of RIVSET®

  • Flexibility

    Mixed, multilayer or hybrid joints are essential to modern lightweight construction. RIVSET® is ideal for a variety of material combinations – including high-strength steel.

  • Resilience

    RIVSET® is highly resilient. Even when subject to changing loads.

  • Economic

    No pre-drilling is necessary so positioning is easier.

Method and principle

Extremely strong joints in one step

There is no need for the material components to be pre-drilled or positioned exactly.
In one step, the semi-tubular rivet pierces the upper layer of the work piece and forms an undercut in the lower layer, forming the characteristic locking head. This process has a high level of reproducibility and can be easily automated.
