Get the speed of rivet placement with the benefit of being able to remove and re-use. Using a simple hex key, the Rivscrew threaded speed fastener allows for easy placement and servicing.
Using a Rivscrew rivet removes the need for costly tapping or thread forming operation while creating a higher vibration-resistant “thread lock” compared to standard screws.
Available in various lengths and configurations, the bright tin plated steel option allows for ease of soldering and increased electrical conductivity. The Rivscrew is compatible with assembly materials made of metal, plastic, aluminum, magnesium, and nylon and die-cast zinc.
- Expands radially during installation to form a thread in host material.
- Removable for servicing and reusable.
- Various lengths available providing high clamp loads.
- Fastens most materials up to Vickers hardness 105 Hv5.
- Can be used to fasten: metal to plastic, plastic to plastic, aluminum alloy, magnesium, nylon and die- cast zinc, and electronic components.
- Placed using a unique repetition mandrel system for high speed assembly.
- Can be bowl fed for larger volume applications using automated equipment.
- Available as a customized design to meet your unique assembly requirements.
- Assembly applications include aluminum die-cast boxes, cast magnesium, semi-conductors to thin wall and extruded heatsinks, semi-conductors to PCB's, PCB's to chassis assemblies, fastening into injection molded plastic bosses, and general engineering involving plastics, nylon, polycarbonate, and more.
