Riveting is a joining technique that is usually used to join metal or plastic sheets of small thickness.
The joint is made using a metal piece (rivet), which undergoes permanent plastic deformation to join the two surfaces.
It is an extremely flexible technique for these types of uses, and ensures excellent reliability over time. The rivet, or the joining pin in general, can be deformed by pressing or through cyclical rolling motions. The behavior of the material differs in these two cases, and the two techniques are often reviewed accurately with the client to decide which is the best to use.
It can be performed using mechanical, pneumatic, or ultrasonic (plastic materials only) riveting systems. Camas can integrate riveting systems into its assembly and testing lines.
