Exhaust Systems

When attaching exhaust systems to motorcycles, high strength and load bearing capabilities of the fastener is mandatory. POP Avdel HR (high retention)/Avinox® rivets have a large bulb footprint on the backside which provides the strength and vibration resistance necessary to prevent failures.

Windshield and Gas Tank Bolts

High aesthetics is a critical requirement of highly visible fasteners on any style bike. By cold forming stainless steel, SEF offers customers unique shapes to fit the contour of any bike. Electro-polishing the fastener provides a chrome like appearance to match the rest of the bike while still providing corrosion resistance.

Rail Extrusions to Gunnell

Self Pierce Riveting (SPR) allows boat manufacturers’ to assemble rail extrusions to the gunnel without any predrilled holes. The use of SPR does not distort the top materials during assembly so the joint is aesthetically pleasing. SPR provides a weather tight seal.

Eliminate Waste/Reduce Tooling Maintenance Costs

Canoe manufacturers can more than double the speed of their production/hour as well as eliminate spent mandrels on their manufacturing floor. This resulted in a significant cost savings in maintenance repair on their facilities’ equipment. Cost savings was also realized on maintenance of the rivet placing tool. Jaws lasted ten times longer than standard breakstem tool components.
