6 Standard Riveting Forms with Orbital Tooling (Peen)

At Orbitform, one of our specialties is Orbital Forming and Riveting. 

Orbital forming and riveting is a cold-forming process using a peen tool held at a fixed angle to create a sweeping line of pressure around a rivet, progressively forming the rivet throughout the process. 

The peen is crucial to the forming process, making contact with the part being formed and doing the actual forming work. The peen fits into the orbital head and is typically held in place by a set screw. 

A wide variety of standard peens are used with orbital heads, each with a different purpose. Some ensure a specific aesthetic appearance, while others are capable of flaring or crimping. Each peen is designed specifically for each customer part, developed by our engineers to custom fit the specific application. 

The peen becomes the key to forming high-quality parts. Orbitform's Service Team has preventative maintenance packages to ensure that your peens and tooling consistently produce top-quality parts.
