How Are Shoulder Rivets Used?

Posted by: Admin | Date: 25-02-2015

Based on the specific requirements for your project, you may need a certain type of rivet. Among the various types of rivets available today is the shoulder rivet. This type of rivet is unthreaded and features a headed pin. Shoulder rivets are used when it is necessary to join two or more parts together by passing the pin through the holes that are drilled into the individual parts. A second head in the pin is then formed on the opposite side of the material. In order for the head to be formed on the pin's plain side, direct pressure is usually applied. Once a shoulder rivet has been deformed, it is not possible for it to be removed without breaking one of the heads. For this reason, shoulder rivets are often preferred for applications in which security is essential.
