Impact: What is Impact and How Do You Make One?

The Impact Riveting Assembly Process

Posted on 01/22/2018 | by The Orbitform Blog Team


According to Merriam-Webster, the word “impactful” means having a forceful impact: producing a marked impression.


Influential people that come to mind when you think of the word might be Mother Teresa, Gandhi, or Martin Luther King Jr.


When asked to reflect on who has had the greatest impact in your life you might answer: a devoted parent, a special teacher, a minister, or the coach who never let you quit on your goals. Each in their own way, these people left a marked impression on you and your life.


As we scale down to how Orbitform has an impact on you and your assembly project, the answer is quite literal. One of our key processes is Impact Riveting. This process uses a driver to leave a marked impression on your assembly, without leaving a marked impression on your budget. Here is a link to our Impact Riveting video, where you can see the process in action.
