Orbital forming is a cold forming process using a peen tool held at a fixed angle to create a sweeping line of pressure around a rivet or tenon. This movement progressively collapses the rivet or tenon shank down onto the upper material with each rotation, permanently forming a rivet head in the process. Orbital forming creates a low profile, aesthetically appealing finish, and allows for joint articulation. The final rivet head form is determined by the type of peen.

Orbital riveting is a low force cold forming process. Using a peen tool positioned at a 3, 4, or 6 degree angle and mounted on a rotating spindle, it maintains a line of contact on the workpiece and gradually kneads the material to a desired form.Contact Us
Orbital Staking uses a sharper tool. With Orbital Staking, material is peeled away from the substrate to form over the part it is retaining at 360 degrees.Contact Us
