Advantages of riveted joints

 

  • In comparison to screws, the advantage of rivets is that no thread is made in any of the components.
  • The connection is permanent and can only be broken by destroying it.
  • It only requires access to one (usually the outer) side of the component.
  • Setting a blind rivet is quick, easy and straightforward.
  • The quality of a form-fit rivet connection can be determined visually (without the need to measure) from the form of the closing head.

Tips

 

  • Washers should be used when riveting soft materials such as leather or plastic.
  • To avoid contact corrosion, the workpiece and rivet should be made of the same material for metal joints.
