Innovations from Honsel


More than 90 years in connection with a product let it become a real passion. Every Day. The results are paricular specialties and innovations, continuous improvements and developments. Frequently parts and properties of an individually designed product or complete special parts are integrated in our standard range and help to improve this and make it unique.


Many ideas and products are based on requirements for example from the automotive industry or excellent suggestions from our customers out of their daily business. This often leads to the last detail of optimization potential.

Special solutions and adaptations are often the basis for new fasteners, which gets ready to serial production after extensive tests and adjustments.

Multigrip blind rivet nut

One blind rivet nut for all grip ranges. The innovative and patented development of the HONSEL-group was the first mass-production multigrip blind rivet nut. The product has a lot of advantages over the common standard types:

  • reduction of storage and failure costs
  • reduction of delivery times
  • reduction of item diversity
  • no mixing of different grip ranges

Blind rivet nut "Hochfest"

HONSEL's "HIGH STRENGTH" technology enables the carrying capacity of the thread to be increased greatly. This facility ensures that when mechanical overloads occurs, a 12.9 strength class screw ("HIGH STRENGTH" steel) or an 8.8 strength class screw ("HIGH STRENGTH" aluminium) fails much sooner than the HONSEL nut. This provides greater security in all applications where heightened mechanical specifications are required.

Sealed blind rivet CERTO®-PERFECT

The sealed blind rivet for special needs. The strong CERTO®-PERFECT sealed blind rivet forms a large and smooth closing head by its special clamped rivet sleeve. This head makes sure that the danger of pull through in case of oversized bore holes can be reduced to a minimum. Additionally the tightness in standing water is increased significant.

Blind rivet nut with sprayed seal

Based on the increasing demand of gas- and waterproofed fasteners with threads, HONSEL developed a closed end blind rivet nut with an additional seal made out of automotive certified material that combined these requirements with the advantages of an economic and process secure machining.

The sprayed and embedded seal on the bottom of the head guarantees a much better form closure than conventional o-rings. The hexagon shaft avoids any risk of rotation and offers higher clamping forces. An additional large head with a great bearing allocates of the forces on soft materials equally.
