Blind Rivet-The Mock-up-Orlock Rivets

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

This video illustrates the importance of assembling a “cut-away” mock-up to
evaluate a new Orlock blind rivet solution. The Mock-up is essential to use because it is a 3 dimensional representation of what “could be” in terms of a new and improved design. A new rivet, in this case, that saves time, money and improves product value or makes it safer.

Pop Rivet Style and Orlock Stuctural Rivet

Thursday, March 25th, 2010

I love the invention of Pop Rivets aka blind rivets. They can provide superior fastening solutions. This orlock rivet has taken some great features from the Pop brand of “blind rivet” and done something new and innovative. This  rivet, which is called and Orlock blind rivet, has a back side flange. Notice how it forms a washer-like flange on the back, providing a large “footprint” on the blind side of the workpiece. Revolutionary idea because distributes the clamping load of the rivet over a wider surface area, like a nut and bolt can. All this, even if you can’t see or reach the blind side to put the nut on. Cool.

“Orlock Rivet” Before and After Pics

Thursday, August 27th, 2009
Why Blue Pneumatic will make a difference: The story continues . . .
Recently, we set out to solve a rivet problem, that until 6 months ago, could not be solved. We were faced with
a reputable, internationally know, Bus manufacturer  who had major leaking in the “drip rail” of  the bus. Let me show you how we approached and solved the rivet problem. By the way, the problem started because the customer was using inferior, multi-grip ( Avex sylyle rivets) in this application.  A good rivet but incorrectly applied.

After
Consistent “Orlock” rivets with backside
flange and positive pin retention sealed

Positively retained pin can be visually inspected from outside the workpiece!

In short, this excerpt in an engineering summary. I invite you to share your stories relating engineering challenges that you may be facing, or are facing now!

It used to be…I love it but how much?

Friday, June 20th, 2008

It used to be… Wow that tool puts in nutserts that fast and easy?  Well how much are they?

The aswer was: aaaah well they’re about  $1000.00 each. Of coarse  there would be a pause and then a “well it is cool but I have a hand tool”.

Now…. It goes like this: Thats awsome(check out the video to see for youself), how much? Answer: Well, they used to be #$%@#, and now they are…(smiley face<see you local distributor for deatails>). “I can’t afford not to have one”. And the rest is history.

The moral of the story is: There is no reason that any shop that uses even a few nutserts/rivetnuts at a time should be without this “Must Have” tool.
