The most cost effective method of installing a full depth thread in thin gauge materials, Value Rivet Nuts come in a variety of forms. Ideal for use in drilled or punched holes, Value Rivet Nuts are installed from one side making them especially suitable for tube, box sections or tight corners. A comprehensive range of inserts is available in a large range of metric thread sizes to suit most applications.
Zygology Value rivet nuts offer the following benefits:
Zygology is a Master Distributor For Gesipa UK. This means that we can assist with advice on product selection, problem solving as well as the supply of Gesipa products. Currently we can offer a fast turn around on fasteners, and tools from stock.
Shown below are examples of just some of the products Gesipa manufactures.
GESIPA’s PolyGrip rivets feature a wide grip range enabling a single Polygrip to replace up to 3 lengths of standard blind rivets. The PolyGrip’s hole-filling rivet body expands within the application material for better joint integrity. The large blind-side closing head with locked mandrel core provides better support and improved sealing for weather resistance. Polygrips are available in three head styles. Material choices include Aluminum, Steel and Stainless Steel.
GESIPA Dome Peel rivets split into four legs providing a large blind side bearing head for improved support in brittle, soft or ductile materials.
GESIPA Tri-fold rivets form three folded legs that distribute the fastener's clamp-load over a larger blind side head formation. The larger blind side offers increased pull-through resistance in soft and ductile material applications. Tri-fold rivets are used in automotive applications such as plastic body panels, trim, and interior components.
GESIPA manufactures a complete line of Extra Length metric blind rivets according to DIN7337 standards in 3 mm, 4 mm, 4.8 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm and 6.4 mm diameters. Material choices include Aluminum/Steel, Steel/Steel, as well as 304 and 316 Alloy Stainless Steel.
GESIPA’s Mega-Grip is a high strength multigrip structural blind rivet. The flush-break mechanically locked mandrel core improves weather resistance and provides higher shear strength. During setting the rivet body expands within the application material to provide complete hole-fill for tighter joints. Mega-Grips are offered in three head styles: Dome, Large Flange and Countersunk. Material choices include Aluminum and Steel.
GESIPA’s G-Bulb is a high strength structural blind rivet. Designed for thinner material applications, the G-Bulb forms a large blind-side closing head, providing better material support and higher pull-through resistance. High shear strength is achieved by the locked mandrel core. Material choices include Steel and Stainless Steel.
GESIPA’s Bulb-tites are the original high-strength structural tri-folding blind rivets. The comprehensive Bulb-tite product line includes 10 unique series, offering a broad range of diameters, head styles and material choices.
GESIPA produces a comprehensive range of air tools capable of setting all types of blind and structural rivets. The Tuarus range offers fast cycle times combined with flexibilty and ease of use
For those with out access to compressed air GESIPA produces a range of re-chargeable battry powered tools suitable for placing blind rivets up to 6.4 MM in diameter and rivet nuts up to M8.
NeoSpeed Rivets Offer Many benefits to manufacturing
Avdel Speed Fastening has been around for quite a few years now. Chobert, Briv and Rivscrew fasteners have been used successfully in a variety of testing applications; and the system has proved itself more than capable of reducing assembly time and the installed cost of riveting.
One limitation which the system has always had is that it did not cope well with holes which were oversized or out of tolerance or varying joint thicknesses. New NeoSpeed rivets now overcome those issues and comes with several additional benefits as well.
NeoSpeed rivets benefit from a unique linear splined body design which allows the rivet to grip anywhere along the length of the body. This means that any combination of sheets can be joined and clamped tightly together so long as the rivet is long enough to protrude through to the other side of the joint satisfactorily. This means that the operator can safely join any combination of materials without having to worry about selecting the correct rivet for the job. In addition rivet inventory can be reduced by over 60%.
Neospeed rivets offer excellent hole fill which means that holes which are oversized, out of alignment or not even round (as can happen with drilled holes) can be accommodated reducing the possibility of rework or weak joints. NeoSpeed rivets are 3 times more tolerant to incorrectly sized holes than standard nail rivets. As a result oversized holes can be used in the front sheets to reduce alignment issues without reducing joint integrity.
NeoSpeed is fast. Compared to normal blind riveting Speed Riveting will reduce assembly time by at least 30% and depending on the type of assembly we have seen reductions of 90%. Time is the biggest cost to consider when assembling anything. Generally speaking a 10% reduction in assembly time is worth more than a 20% reduction in material costs. Speed Riveting is proven to be the fastest way of delivering blind rivets to the application in conjunction with a range of light and easy to use tools.
NeoSpeed is Strong. NeoSpeed offers better tensile and above average shear strength versus multi-grip breakstem competitor rivets. In tests NeoSpeed has also been proved to have superior resistance to vibration. This means that NeoSpeed rivets can be used in demanding applications with confidence knowing that not only are you reducing assembly time you are also using the best fastener for the job.
No spent mandrels to clutter the floor or to dispose of. Using NeoSpeed is the ‘green’ alternative to break stem rivets. In addition the assembled weight of the rivet is about 50% less than a conventional rivet.
