RIVKLE®

Processing systems for blind rivet nuts and studs

Threads for thin-walled components

RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and 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.


Method / principle

RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and 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

RIVKLE® blind rivet nuts and 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 RIVKLE® blind rivet nut or stud is spun on, compressed and then spun off.

Process technology

 

Stroke setting method

The product tables in our RIVKLE® catalogues serve as a guideline for adjusting the setting stroke S to be used with a particular RIVKLE® blind rivet nut or 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 RIVKLE® is possible. In force-controlled riveting, the service life of the mandrels increases.
