Lightweight construction still remains to be a key technology for future cars. However, efficient lightweight construction also sets high standards for multi-material concepts thus requiring innovative fastening technology such as the established RIVSET® self pierce riveting technology from Böllhoff. This technology allows to join different materials in a single production step without pre-punching.
Efficiency was the reason enough for Böllhoff to develop alternatives for the self-pierce riveting technology with semi tubular rivets – RIVSET® Automation E - in addition to the established hydraulic drive.
This assembly system focusses on a robust drive and its functionality and flexibility during use. In combination with maximum availability and minimum maintenance, this is the basis for a successful production.
The highlights of RIVSET® Automation E at a glance:
Smart: modular and comprehensive machine designs
Quick: machine configuration via plug & play
Flexible: remote access to the control software
Powerful: high-performance CPU
Plug & play: mobile panel for more than one control unit during commissioning
