…..for sure Steady, of course, know all there is to know about rivets…… whatever it is …. a visit to their web site here – https://www.steady-ind.com reveals just that …..here’s a couple of very modest pieces of ‘riveting’ information such as the difference between rivets and screws …and the solution to rivet cracking …..read on…..
Rivets can be divided into standard parts and non-standard parts……
Standard parts are divided into: stainless steel rivets, copper rivets, iron rivets, aluminium rivets and so on.
Definition of rivet: A metal rod-shaped part with a cap on one end. After penetrating into the connected component, the outer end of the rod is punched, pressed out, and the component is pressed and fixed.
The difference between rivets and screws is:
The rivet is deformed by itself, and generally one end becomes larger, connecting two (or more than two) parts together. After riveting, if you want to split the part, you must break the rivet.
The screw is screwed into the body of the component to connect the component. Therefore, if you want to disassemble the component, you only need to unscrew the screw. The screw is not damaged and can be used repeatedly.
In general: the screws are easy to adjust and the rivets are not easy to adjust….l
Rivet cracking solution – Semi-hollow or solid rivets crack when pressed,
There are generally several questions:
Material problem – special rivet wire should be selected.
Concentric problem- at semi-hollow, semi-hollow un-concentric partial air will also crack
The head of the rivet is very uneven
The punch is not aligned with the centre of the rivet.
