- What are Blind Rivets?
Before the blind rivet is invented, rivet usually refers to the common solid rivet, which is installed by a rivet hammer on one side and a bucking bar on the other. However, there’s always an occasion when you can’t see or even don’t have access to the back side of the item being riveted. For these kinds of fastening work, the blind rivet is invented.
Not like the common rivet, a blind rivet is comprised of a rivet and a mandrel. During the fastening, with only a riveter to pull the mandrel back, the rivet can hold the two materials in place. More specifically, while pulling the mandrel back, the rivet is deformed to push the sides outward together.
- What are Pop Rivets?
“Pop Rivet” is actually another name for the blind rivet. This rivet is developed by a company in UK. It’s named so due to the “popping” sound the rivet makes during the installation.
- Application of Blind Rivets
As it’s mentioned before, the blind rivet is usually used on an occasion when you don’t have access to the back side. For example, when there’s a need to attach a sign to the wall inside a building, which makes it is impossible to get to the other side.
Of course, the blind rivet has a broader application in many industries. Generally, the main applications are the following:
In manufacturing, Boats, vehicles, and aircraft manufacturing when on side of the workpiece is inaccessible.
In construction, the blind rivet provides a more firm structure.
