Torque-resistant blind rivet nuts
Optimised efficiency and process reliability
High-quality threaded inserts
Different types of material can be joined in a fast and reliable way by means of mechanical joining methods.
Blind riveting has the additional advantage of one-sided accessibility. With GESIPA’s threaded fasteners (blind rivet nuts and blind rivet studs), high-quality, load-bearing threads can be inserted into thin, soft or sensitive materials without imposing further impacts on the material to be joined.
This also applies to applications where other manufacturing processes, such as thread cutting, direct screwing and welding are not possible.
Simple, flexible, cost-effective
Not only does this joining method allow for one-sided accessibility, but it’s also flexible and simple to assemble - and with mechanical properties that are often better. Blind rivet technology allows for load-bearing fastening points in almost all materials which at the same time serve as a stable basis for a releasable screw connection.
The mechanical properties can be optimally adapted to every application by choosing the fastener which is tailored to the specifications of the respective application with regards to material, geometry or surface coating.
Torque-resistant blind rivet nut
GESIPA says its new torque-resistant blind rivet nut is the ideal solution for inserting high-quality threads into extruded aluminium profiles when it comes to efficiency and process reliability.
It can achieve the same mechanical properties as are usually only possible when using hexagon blind rivet nuts in hexagonal holes. These have the disadvantage that they have to be laser-machined or milled into the workpiece at very high cost.
With the torque-resistant blind rivet nut it is now possible to insert a torque-resistant high-quality thread into a low-cost round borehole. The optimised tight locking between the new blind rivet nut and the extruded profile also improves process reliability during setting.
Torque-resistant blind rivet nuts can be used to insert load-bearing threads into closed extruded profiles in an efficient manufacturing process. Additional costs because of necessary expensive pre-drilling of holes are avoided.
