Rivets, Shoulder Rivets & Non-Threaded Fasteners

There are two basic types of assembly rivets, tubular and blind. Rivets can be used as inexpensive alternatives to threaded fasteners in assemblies and are preferred when access is limited to one side of the assembly. The major functional difference between tubular and blind rivets is that blind rivets require access to only one side of the assembly for installation while with both styles, disassembly destroys the rivet with possible damage to the assembly.

 

With tubular rivets, the location of the rivet in the assembled product influences both joint strength and clinching requirements, with edge distance and pitch distance being the important dimensions.

 

In choosing the correct rivet for one's application, please check industry standards or manufacturers' specific guidelines and recommendations.

 

Joint design factors that must be known include allowable tolerances of rivet length versus assembly thickness, type and magnitude of loading, hole clearance, and joint configuration. Grip range is the range of material thickness that can be joined properly with a rivet of a given length.
