Blind rivet nuts

Blind rivet nuts have become an indispensable part modern installation engeneering. They allow to:

  • - install bolt threads of different types into ...
    ... thin or low rigidity components
    ... hollow sections or other components not accessible from both sides
    ... components which already have a coated surface,
  • connect different components to each other at the same time and
  • attach additional parts.

The continous development of new types, forms and dimensions documents the nearly unlimited fields of applications. The HONSEL-Group has been one of the leading companies in this progress for decades.

How does a blind rivet nut work?

Head designs

Flat head

  • universally useable type of nut with a high level of availability and a wide material spectrum
  • used with dry and grease-free components

Small countersunk head

The countersinking of the borehole is not normally necessary when machining blind rivet nuts. If technically necessary, the countersinking is to be carried out so that the countersunk head protrudes by min. 0,1 mm after setting.

Countersunk head

For the machining of blind rivet nuts with countersunk head, the component is only to be countersunk to a depth at which the countersunk head protrudes by min. 0,1 mm after setting.

Round shaft blind rivet nuts

  • universal nut type with high availability and broad material spectrum
  • use with dry and grease-free components

Blind rivet nuts with hexagonal shaft (Hexatop / Hexaform)

  • shaft design with positive locking antirotation device
  • preferred use with coated components
  • high rotationresistance even with insufficient setting device height
  • suitable for multiple screwing

Installation

1. Blind rivet nuts are distinguished by simple and rapid installation.

2. To set the nut, it is screwed onto the threaded mandrel of the setting tool, inserted into the component borehole, and set through the tool stroke. This causes the closing bead of the nut to form. After the threaded mandrel is removed, the components can be screwed tight.

3. For installing the nut, various tools are available with which the procedure can be carried out carefully. Setting tools operated by muscle power or by pneumatic hydraulics which can be selected.

Processing blind rivet nuts

Special tools are needed for processing blind rivet nuts. These tools have to be chosen on the basis of the rivet type, the field of application and the processing volume.
