Cold Heading of a Steel Rivet for the Furniture Industry
A customer in the Southern United States needed a project that required high volume cold heading to create this steel flat head shoulder rivet, for the furniture industry. The customer's specifications called out the use of C1008 steel, with a natural finish, to be used in a furniture application. The rivets measured 1.155" in length, with an outside head diameter of .252", and had to meet tolerances of ÃÂ±.001", along with a circular runout of .010".
We manufactured this rivet on our 3/8" National, two die, three blow cold header. We maintained all of the customer's specifications for tolerances and size, while our high speed capability allowed us to produce such product in orders of 2 million. To learn more about this steel rivet or about the rest of our capabilities, please see the table below or contact us directly.
