Impact Rivet Form

Impact Riveting

With impact riveting, the rivet or fastener is automatically fed and inserted through holes in selected parts (shank leading) into lower tooling. Then the rivet or fastener is formed to a desired head form on the tenon end, joining and securing components together.

Impact Staking: Material is cut and peeled away from the substrate to form over the part it is retaining.


Self-Pierce Impact

A rivet is punctured through a material stack-up into lower form tooling, to fasten and secure the materials together.

Fixed Center Impact Riveters

These riveting machines are designed to set two rivets simultaneously on very close centers. 


Jaw Lowering Safety Device

This new Jaw Lowering Safety Device solves the clearance challenges posed by typical impact riveting safety devices by using the already present jaws to check for clearance. This design allows the jaws to act as the safety probe prior to the machine actuating and the driver installing the rivet.
