Rivets are used in a numerous applications to secure two or more components together. Typically used in sheet type products, the rivet is easily installed with access only required from one side of the assembly.
The standard blind rivet consists of two components, a rivet body and mandrel. The rivet is first placed into an installation tool and is then inserted into the application. Activating the tool pulls the rivet's mandrel, drawing the mandrel head into the blind-end of the rivet body. This action forms a head on the rivet body and secures the application materials together. Finally, the mandrel reaches its predetermined break-load, with the used portion of the mandrel breaking away and being removed from the set rivet. Blind rivets offer speed, consistent performance and excellent appearance.
