Pneumatic InstallationWith standard PNEUMATIC RIVETING HAMMERS
Any small, lightweight pneumatic riveting hammer can be used in a production line for the installation of Southco Drive Rivets. Two or three blows of the bit are enough to drive the pin easily and quickly. Blind riveting in high production becomes a comparatively effortless operation.

Hammer installationWith a hammer …
Just insert the rivet, hit the pin. One man, working from one side of the job sets rivets easily and quickly in blind or open applications. Once you drive the pin, the job is done. Sheets are pulled tightly together, and you get a smooth finished head without secondary operations.

Drive Rivets

1. Need the biggest (or the smallest) drive rivets made? Hanson has them on the shelf. Plus plenty in between … from 1/8″ to 3/8″ diameter. Only Hanson stocks all of these sizes.

 

 

2. Hanson’s selection enables you to cope with numerous fastening problems involving tubes, extrusions, odd-shaped housings, and wood panels – thick or thin.

 

 

3. Drive riveting is fast – so fast that it’s often used in place of nuts and bolts. No special tools or power needed. Not even for 5/16″ or 3/8″ diameters. An ordinary hammer will drive a Southco rivet home.
