Information  at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • A rivet is a mechanical fastener
  • There are a number of rivets, designed to meet different cost, accessibility, and strength requirements. These include: solid rivets, blind rivets, multi-grip rivets, grooved rivets, peel type blind rivets, self-pierce rivets, plastic rivets, tubular rivet, etc.
  • Aluminium and its alloy are strong, durable and light weight. In today’s energy conscious society, these three basic properties combine to make the metal and its alloy the preferred material of construction for transport applications. Products like automobiles, aircraft, ships, conductors, and trains are all obvious examples.
  • Aluminium rivets are an ideal lightweight yet secure way of fixing multiple materials perfect for aluminium sheet. Rivet known as “blind” are designed for joining material only accessible from one side or two.
  • Before being installed, a rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. The end opposite the head is called the buck-tail. On installation the rivet is placed in a punched or drilled hole, and the tail is upset, or bucked or deformed, so that it expands to about 1.5 times the original shaft diameter, holding the rivet in place
  • The rivets shall be made by cold forging and shall subsequently be appropriately heat treated, if necessary.
  • Aluminum rivets shall be made from Aluminum rivet stock conforming to IS 740.
  • Rivets have wide application in the manufacturing sector as well as during maintenance of various products
  • Rivet has wide application in the structural parts of aircraft, in static structures such as bridges, cranes and building frames. It is also used in manufacture or repair of truck bodies.
  • For cost effective production, Al-Cu alloy is best suitable for the production of rivets, because it is relatively affordable and lighter in weight than copper and its strength to resist impact force is higher compared to aluminium.
