Orbital Form Riveting
RTC is proud to offer an orbital riveting production service (a method of joining parts together through forming the end of a rivet). In today’s marketplace, we are one of the few manufacturers capable of offering customers this service. The orbital riveting process results in the formation of a joint that will not allow the rotation of mated parts. Depending on product design, the joint may be formed to become “flexible.” Rivet sizes range from 0.02” – 3”Ø. This process can be used to flare, swage and crown material from 0.02” – 6”Ø.
Having the in-house ability to offer orbital riveting, we are able to drastically reduce lead times on jobs where this process is required.
