New Techniques for Joining by Riveting


Article Preview

The paper presents new techniques for joining of materials, proposed for development by ISIM Timisoara. It shows the general considerations and preliminary results regarding two new methods of joining by riveting, methods based on friction processes: - a joining process by riveting with hybrid effect, that means mechanical grip - friction stir welding - a joining process by friction riveting. Experiments for joining by riveting were carried out for couples of metallic materials (rivet and base materials) similar and dissimilar (aluminum alloys, steel, copper). There are presented conditions and requirements for the joining processes, how to form the riveted joint, positive results and limits of the application. Primary technical data on process principle, data on technological parameters, rivet configuration and influence factors were obtained.
