Presses are supplied by our companies in England, France and the United States and individual BalTec representatives.
Pressing with a non-moving tool can be used to displace material. The protruding section of the rivet is compressed by the forming tool via vertical force. This type of material forming causes swelling deep into the rivet shank, against the wall of the hole. The result is a solid joint, while maintaining the material structure.
Pressing with non-moving tool requires approx. 10 times the force of radial riveting. Typical process parameters are: Tool design, press force and forming speed.
