RIVSET® self-riveting technology for the joining of several materials in just one step.
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.
Mixed, multilayer or hybrid joints are essential to modern lightweight construction. RIVSET® is ideal for a variety of material combinations – including high-strength steel.
RIVSET® is highly resilient. Even when subject to changing loads.
No pre-drilling is necessary so positioning is easier.
Method and principle
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.
