Rivets are a type of mechanical fastener used to join small electronic assemblies and large structural elements. They come in different sizes and materials, and they require access on both sides so that once inserted, the unheaded side can be mechanically deformed.
Here are some common types of rivets:
- Blind rivets – these require access to only one side of the rivet to fasten materials together. Therefore, you can use it to join materials when the other side has limited access.
- Solid rivets – these are the most durable rivet variety, and they’re installed red-hot.
