Impact Riveting Machines

Impact riveting is an assembly process using impact force to permanently fasten components together. There exist a wide variety of rivet materials, rivet designs, and component types which can be assembled using the impact riveting process to join parts quickly, efficiently, and lastingly.

The Milford Model 56 impact riveter is a pneumatically driven modular riveting head, tooled to automatically feed and set one (1) rivet per cycle. This unit is specifically designed for integration with automated assembly equipment, and is well suited for applications requiring single or multiple riveters. The space saving wedge design permits grouping of two or more units as close as 1.0" (25.4 mm) on a common base. The standard unit is supplied without controls, but controls may be supplied as a complete turn-key system if you select the optional bench-top base and controls package. The impact riveting units are commonly used with automotive window molding assemblies, instrument panels, appliance components, electrical devices, brake shoes, and other light duty riveting processes. The cushion squeezing riveting action lends itself to applications such as clinching of rivets through plastic, ceramic and other relatively brittle materials.

Orbitform’s modular Milford Model 313 impact riveter is manufactured and assembled at Orbitform’s factory in Jackson, Michigan, USA. The impact riveting machine is available with many standard features and the impact assembly machine can be customized with options to help monitor, control, and improve the assembly process. Orbitform’s application engineers listen and seek the appropriate answer for each specific assembly process being considered. Orbitform’s team can outline the required upper and lower tooling to conduct the riveting application and, if the customer desires, Orbitform can design and build turnkey assembly machines complete with machine actuation, safety system, fixturing method, error proofing process, and/or other expert assembly features associated with impact riveting machines and automatic assembly equipment.

The robust design of this riveting machine results in machines operating for 50 or more years in continual service.  The Milford riveter's column, base, and frame offer the strength required for the most demanding semi-tubular riveting applications in the world.

  • Multi-Hit

Orbitform designs and manufactures multi-hit impact riveting machines to help improve your productivity, reduce assembly process cycle time, enhance product quality, and save floor space. The multi-hit impact riveting assembly systems from Orbitform start from the basic fixed center Milford riveter and progress to complete automated assembly systems with several riveting heads and other special features including, material handling, error proofing, automated quality checks, and other advanced assembly options.

Riveting 2 Rivets Simultaneously with Milford Fixed Center Machines

Orbitform’s Milford fixed center Multi-Hit riveting machines insert and upset two (2) rivets simultaneously with the rivets being as close as 0.25 inch (6.4 mm) apart when measured from the center of one rivet to the center of the other rivet.

The minimum center distance between rivets is dependent on the size of the rivet heads while the maximum rivet spacing for the Milford fixed center assembly machines is 4 inches (102 mm). Typical applications for Milford Multi-Hit riveters include circuit breaker assemblies, automotive hardware, tools, and ladders.

Adjustable Center Distance Multi-Hit Riveting Machines

Orbital also offers adjustable center distance impact riveting machines for assembly applications where the distance between rivets differs from part to part. The adjustable center distance impact riveting systems are perfect for consolidating multiple riveting machines into one unit, thus reducing floor space consumption and delivering a better return on investment.

Multi-Hit Riveting with Automated Assembly Systems

Impact riveting assembly applications requiring pneumatic, mechanical, hydraulic, or hydra-pneumatic powered riveting machines can be improved with Multi-Hit riveting machines from Orbitform. Orbitform has extensive experience integrating several riveting heads into semi-automatic or automatic assembly systems to help your production process assemble products faster, with higher quality, with fewer operators, and with reduced floor space needs.
