The rivet nuts are fasteners that can create a thread on pre-holed plates, having access only from one side of the work-piece. Their application does not cause damages or deformations on superficially plated materials.
This rivet nut can be ‘blind side’ assembled and can therefore also be installed on hollow pieces and sections of large dimensions.
The rivet nuts are bushings with threaded seat and a chamber to be expanded into a permanent deformation on sheet metal; they are not suitable for receiving other elements to be assembled through the use of screws. This type of fastener is recommended for assembly of boxed-shaped and tubular parts.
The rivet nuts are available in zinc plated steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and with different head types: dome, countersunk or reduced. They can be cylindrical or hexagonal.
The rivet nuts can be used to assemble thin sheet materials, such as gaskets and lids on frames, or other light joints in automotive, aerodynamic and aerospace industries.
They can be used for fastening more elements together in agricultural equipments, civil works and sliding doors assembling.
For the installation of the rivet nuts it can be used a range of tools which can be either manual, hydropneumatic or battery powered, and they all result to be perfect for this type of assembly solution.
