There is a wide variety of fasteners available, and it is important to choose one that is suitable for the job at hand, meaning that it is simple to install and will result in a strong joint. For this reason, rivet nuts are commonly used as a fastener in the field and in production settings.
Rivet nuts are versatile fasteners because they may be made in a broad range of configurations to suit a wide range of needs. Regardless of the kind of rivet nut you choose, they all provide the following advantages:
Rivet nuts create a threaded, detachable joint in any material. A rivet nut provides a solid foundation for a screw in bolt or other type of threaded fastener. They are particularly versatile in that they may be installed in virtually any material. For use with hard metals, for instance, they provide a permanent threaded nut that will not pull out. They work well with wood, fiberglass, and plastics, making them a popular choice for applications like furniture, boats, and even consumer electronics that need to be taken apart and put back together with little effort.
Rivet nuts are blind fasteners, so they have the advantages of being reliable, robust, and resistant to vibration. Blind fasteners are widely used in industries such as the automotive and aerospace sectors due to their convenient installation from a single side. Additionally, the design creates a lasting joint that, in contrast to nuts and bolts, cannot work loose even when subjected to continuous vibration. Permanent fastening is achieved by using rivet nuts.
Rivet nuts are well suited for mass manufacturing and may assist reduce installation costs. Rivet nuts function well on an assembly line, making them ideal for factory or assembly line applications, where they may cut production time and costs.
