Riveters and riveting machines insert fasteners through aligned holes in parts to be joined, then press or hammer them from the insertion side to provide the second retaining head. Riveters and riveting machines are available in a wide variety of configurations, from manually operated hand riveters and handheld riveting guns to multihead automated riveting tools that are electrically, pneumatically (pop riveters and air riveters), or hydraulically actuated.

Who Took Our Poll?Top
Recent advances incorporate, computers, advanced safety, unique anvil design. As labor rates continue to affect competitiveness, greater and more sophisticated automated assembly machines are being considered.
Aerostructure, complicated aerodynamics shapes of aircraft/helicopters. Composites structure ,etc.
Cold welding, projection welding
All which are used in aerospace.
Been the same for years.
J.M. Murphy & Co incorporates all of the technical knowledge that is required for rivet assembly. There are machinery houses that do not get involved with rivet manufacture, there are rivet manufacturers who have nothing to do with machines. There are tooling houses who only do tools. J.M. Murphy & Co. provides Machines, Tooling, Rivets and Design Engineering thus being able to take a project from a concept through production and to support production through any problems that may occur or changes that might want to be made.
Dessouter, Chicago Pneumatic and US tools.
Applications and UseTop
A very wide spectrum including switches, mechanical assemblies, self-piercing, applying tapped rivets, clothing, stainless assemblies, leakproof fastening, shoulder rivet assemblies, automotive assemblies, miniature rivet use and many more.
This Riveting Tool will be used where ever rivets are needed to fasten a workpiece - such as air conditioning /on roofs/ aircraft/ ships/ boats/ buses/ trucks/ etc -- Tradesmen will use this tool , as its much faster than the present method of setting rivets, having to use two tools to set pop or blind rivets.
Building structural assemblies of Aircraft - space and helicopters - from sub assembly manufacture to main assembly build. Joining of sheet metal parts, metal parts and composites parts with overlap and but joint with this means.
Stationary riveting machine for aircraft assembly.
Repair of tractors and trailers
HVAC for ships (ship design)
Riveting of carriers.
Building van bodies.
Most riveting situations are somewhat unique, which is the beauty of concept. Machines can be built in such a manner that they adapt to countless applications, without having to redesign the basic concept. Rivets can be set in the standard "C" press approach. delivered by movable placement heads, set head up or in a wide variety of angles, track fed, tube fed, used with a spectrum of assembly tables.
OSHA would be more than happy to advise people about many serious injuries to bodies that were affected by unsafe use and improper designs.
Danger punch / form tool blow-up, break and fly.
Longer Magna-grip bolts for thicker materials.
Production riveting metal to metal, quiet, repeatable, simple.
We offer services to customers looking for riveting solutions. Our "wish" is to reach as many potential customers as possible.
SAFETY FIRST! Your fingers are a lot softer than the metal getting smashed and spun. Fixture to assure correct riveting. Ridged set up. Make sure cap. correct, throat(reach), punch in good shape. If something feels wrong, stop, double check settings, rivet quality.
