Precision Cold Heading of a Stainless Steel Solid Rivet for the Electronics Industry
The flat head shoulder rivet shown here was designed for use within an electronics application as an interface switch components. Manufacturing to the customers supplied specifications required the use of our 3/16″ National one die, two blow cold header capabilities. The rivet was composed of 430 stainless steel, and measured .708″ in length, with an outside head diameter of .475″. We performed dimensional testing throughout the run to maintain the ±.0005″ dimensional tolerances required by the customer. The finished product was then passivated and shipped to our customer in Chicago, Illinois in annual orders of 250,000. For more information on this project see the table below or contact us directly.
