Riveting - Solid and Blind
We are able to install both blind and solid rivets to most customer specifications. We have manual installation tools for low production, as well as pneumatic tooling for high volume assembly work. Rivets are installed to spec and each is checked to insure correct installation.
Press-Fit, and Temperature assisted Bushing Install
Press fit bushings are a common customer request with our assemblies. Typically they are a .0005-.002” interferance fit. However, occasionally our customers require temperature assisted installations where the bushings are cooled using liquid Nitrogen and then quickly press fit into
the aluminum part to maximize interference while minimizing damage to the aluminum piece. We are happy to work with our customer’s requirements to do whatever is required to get the job done.
We have a full array of Helical insert installation tools as well as a large stock of Mil-spec inserts all with traceable paperwork. We’ve installed hundreds of thousands of inserts over the years and each insert is installed using the correct tools, method and to the correct depth. We’ve worked with both standard inserts as well as staked inserts in a variety of different materials.
