Process monitoring

Measurement of Z-axis:

Length measurement of the overall dimensions (length) of the rivet bolt. Initial length Z1 and finished length Z2, their tolerances and riveting pressure are decisive parameters for exactly reproducible and economical rivets.

Measurement of H-axis:

Projection measurement of riveting bolt to the component: Starting with value H1, the riveting process is completed when end value H2 is reached. A significant advantage of this measurement for riveted multilayer joints is that incorrect or faulty components as well as critical tolerance combinations can be identified.


Alternatively, the riveting process can also be carried out with a delta measurement. In this process, a defined delta value from the initial length Z1/H1 is used for the rivet.Combining both measuring systems enables extended monitoring of riveting process parameters.
