RIVSET® Automation E

Electrical self-pierce riveting systems for perfect joints


When modern multi-material designs electrify

Compact, robust, modular.

Lightweight construction still remains to be a key technology for future cars. However, efficient lightweight construction also sets high standards for multi-material concepts thus requiring innovative fastening technology such as the established RIVSET® self‑pierce riveting technology from Böllhoff. This technology allows to join different materials in a single production step without pre-punching.

An important factor of process devices is the energy efficiency. That was reason enough for Böllhoff to develop alternatives for the self-pierce riveting technology with semi‑tubular rivets – RIVSET® Automation E - in addition to the established hydraulic drive.

The main requirements for such system are a 100 % electrical installation on robots, the compact design of setting tools and short process times – for some applications < 1.5 s. Moreover the user benefits from the symbiosis with further new developments such as the C‑frame generation.

Through the modular system, it guarantees a minimum number of base frames for a maximum number of setting tool variants.
