No hole in workpieces needed

Self-piercing rivets punch through (pierce) through the workpiece as they fasten them together, thus eliminating the need for pre-made holes in the workpiece.

 

Secure fastening of dissimilar materials

Self-piercing rivets can be used to fasten dissimilar materials that are difficult to weld together like aluminum and steel, or even metal and wood.

 

Perfect for fastening painted/coated steel plates

Self-piercing rivets fasten workpieces without heating the material, thus eliminating the need for repainting painted workpieces.

 

Clean fastening for a cleaner workplace

No sparks, smoke or swarf is generated when fastening Self-piercing rivets, all of which contributes to a cleaner workplace overall.
