The time and cost saving advantages of blind riveting are quite simple to understand. The materials to be riveted only need to be reached from one side, which explains the term "blind" riveting. The actual installation process is quick, simple and repeatable without the need for skilled labour.
Structural rivets are high strength rivets especially designed for heavy duty applications, such as in the automotive, construction industries or wherever strong, vibration resistant joints are required. In short, everywhere, where high loads are combined with a need for reliability.
Qonnect offers a range of rivets with features designed to solve particular assembly problems. If your assembly is not straightforward or the materials you are using are a little unusual you may find a suitable solution here
The Qonnect range of blind rivet nuts includes a selection of blind rivet nuts in a range of materials and body styles. Installation is from one side using a simple hand or power tool as you prefer.
Q-Split-Nut is a high strength, wide grip rivet nut particularly suited to plastics, composites and thin sheet materials.
These inserts feature special load spreading flanges which are folded out during installation. Versanuts offer exceptional pull-out, high torque, thread strength for thin sheet materials of most types.
Q-Bolt is a blind rivet bolt providing an externally threaded stud and is available in 4 different thread sizes and two different lengths. All Q-Bolts can be set with a rivet nut tool equipped with modified nose equipment and serve a grade 8.8 strength class.
Q-Rubnuts are ideal for the quick installation of threads into a variety of materials without the need for special setting tools.The Rubnut is simply pushed into the pre-prepared hole in the panel. The mating component is offered up and a screw is then engaged with the thread on the Rubnut.
The Q-Fold-Nut threaded insert is an economical blind fastener designed for assembly-line use in thin, soft, or brittle materials. When tightened, the body collapses to form four legs which grip the inside of the mounting surface, leaving a permanent, reusable thread.
