Speed fasteners are installed using a unique repetition mandrel system. During placement, the tool pulls the mandrel through the rivet giving both axial and radial expansion - providing clamp and hole fill. At the end of each cycle the next rivet is automatically delivered to the nosepiece ready for placement. Typical cycle time for Speed Fastener tooling is approximately 1.0 second. In addition to standard hand held tools, bench mounted, over bench and pantograph equipment is also available. For large volume applications twin or multi-head workstations can be provided. Alternatively the fasteners can be bowl fed using automated equipment that gives continuous feed with cycle times as low as 1.5 seconds.
A feature of Speed Fastening is its controllability. Careful selection of mandrel and nose equipment allows the fastener to be set into the most fragile material, irregular hole or limited access position. Alternatively the clamp up can be increased where a higher clamp load is required.
NeoSpeed is a brand new product development within the Speed riveting range. Designed to replace all other types of blind rivet NeoSpeed offers an unparalleled multi-grip capability hole tolerance flexibility and strength when compared to other blind rivets.
Briv is a multipurpose fastener, suitable for use in most materials including steel, stainless steel aluminium and plastics. Briv rivets have bulbed ends, which give superior clamp up for high strength joints.
Chobert is especially suited to the assembly of thicker materials, up to and including blind holes. Featuring less clamp-up than Briv, Chobert also lends itself to applications that will not take the stress of normal riveting.
Grovit is suited to the assembly of low-density materials either to each other or to metal. Typical applications include fixing wood or board panels onto metal frames, attaching metal fitments to GRP or electrical connector blocks to bracketry.
Designed for the quick attachment of DIN 41612 connectors (plus coding bars if required) to printed circuit boards, Avtronic is suitable for the assembly of a wide variety of plastic and aluminium components.
Speed Fastening is a concept unique to Avdel. The system uses pre-loaded cartridges which are loaded into especially designed air powered tools. These tools are available in various forms from hand held versions for larger applications to a variety of bench mounted versions for smaller products and PCB assembly. Speed Fasteners come in sizes from 1.6 millimetre (1/16") to 6.4 millimetre 1/4") diameter.
