Riveting – 02.10.2017


High-strength and reliable. With RIVSET® self‑pierce riveting technology for the joining of several materials in one step.


Joining of aluminium cast with new ring groove die

While joining steel and/or aluminium sheets on cast aluminium material by using self-pierce riveting technology with semi-tubular rivets, cracking can occur in the material on the button side. This is caused by the mechanical characteristics of the cast material.

The new RIVSET® ring groove die, made by Böllhoff, minimises cracking and ensures an increased interlock as well as reduced rivet load.

Your benefits

  • Avoidance/minimisation of cracking on the button side
  • Reduced rivet load due to an optional cup
  • Increased interlock of the rivet by controlling material movement in the die
