The blind rivet consists of a shank assembled to the rivet mandrel. The handling of blind rivets occurs from one side of the construction elements.
After inserting the rivet into the components bore holes, the rivet mandrel is pulled back by the tool and forms the closing head. The mandrel or parts of it can remain in the shaft after reaching the predetermined break point.
Open, closed or high strength versions, multigrip or expanding blind rivets, with dome head, countersunk head or large head - the variety of available dimensions and types is almost unlimited.
Our production facilities certified in accordance with the automotive industry standards guarantee a consistently high quality with respect to geometric dimensions, mechanical values and function. Many features have significantly closer tolerances than specified in the DIN standards, others not specified there are optimised in detail.
Standard blind rivet
The description ALFO® specifies several product lines of open type standard blind rivets, available with dome head, countersunk head or large dome head.
Grooved Blind Rivet
The ALFO® design with grooved rivet sleeve is perfectly suitable for the blind holes. In this case the grooves claw into the surrounding material of the bore hole.
Multigrip Blind Rivet
The OPTO® multigrip blind rivet with his especially embossed rivet shaft, is distinctly different to a standard blind rivet.
Painted Blind Rivet
The OPTO® multigrip blind rivets in black (RAL 9005) and white (RAL 9010) are available from stock and provide a fast, flexible solution for a variety of applications.
Multigrip blind rivet - high strength
Large grip ranges and higher shear and tensile forces - OPTO®-Bulb is the universal rivet for difficult jobs.
Sealed blind rivet
Due to its closed rivet body the CERTO® sealed blind rivets are experts for liquid tight processing. The rivets characteristic guarentees a captive remaining mandrel and a smooth, burr-free closing head.
Special sealed blind rivet
The strong CERTO®-PERFECT special sealed blind rivet forms a large and smooth closing head by its special clamped rivet sleeve.
Structural blind rivet
The FERO®-BULB series are used in large quantities in various industrial appliances for a long time. Particularly in the field of vehicle and tank construction, this type of rivet is an excellent choice.
Structural blind rivet
FERO®-BOLT high-strength blind rivets are first-class fasteners for industrial applications, especially in those with the attension to the safety factor.
Folding blind rivet
According to the ARCO® body-bound rivet the folding rivet forms a large upset head too. This guarantees an equal distribution of forces, so that especially plastics and other soft or vulnerable materials resist against cracking or pullthrough.
Body bound blind rivet
During the setting process, edges on the mandrel head cut the rivet shaft into four segments. These four segments then unfold on the component surface thus forming the large locking head.
Hammerdrive blind rivet
Hammer stroke or drive rivets are set by driving the mandrel into the rivet body (e.g. by means of a hammer). This causes the lower end of the rivet body to expand.
Grounding blind rivet
Grounding blind rivets offer a simple and reliable way of grounding a product. This is achieved by pressing the respective toothing on the conductor in the material.
Plastic blind rivet
Plastic split blind rivet are used for example in many areas of electrical, automotive, and computer hardware industry.
Besides our extensive standard catalogue range, we create individual custom made products.
