What is Rivet Packaging?

Rivets in a strip

 

The goal with the AutoFast Riveting System is to increase productivity and lower the cost of production by reducing labour cost and raising throughput. The AutoFast Riveting System consists of the self-loading rivet tool and the rivets packaged onto continuous feed strips. Rivet packaging refers to the process of installing rivets onto a continuous feed strip.

Shipping options

Once the rivets have been placed on the continuous feed strip they can be bagged or boxed in quantities that best suit the customer's application.

The type of rivet (material and size) will also determine whether the packaged rivets can be bagged or boxed.

Shipping options are shown below.
