Arconic Fastening Systems offers a wide variety of high performance blind rivets. Blind rivets are ideally suited for use in structure where access is limited. However, their reliability and ease of use make them a great alternative to solid rivets in many different applications. Arconic Fastening Systems’ heritage exceeds over 70 years in providing a large selection of high performance blind rivets that are the fasteners of choice for countless applications.
The Unimatic® blind rivet system is a general purpose blind rivet for aerospace applications. The bulbed blind head, mechanically-locked spindle, and unique hole-filling features provide higher reliability and strength than comparable blind rivets. This system meets or exceeds all of the rigorous design and performance requirements detailed in NAS1900, NAS1919, and NAS1921 specifications. The simplified single action installation of these blind rivets permits the use of lightweight, reliable installation tools. The all-aluminum version of this system provides extremely lightweight high performance, while the Monel® alloys and stainless steel versions of this system provide high strength performance even at elevated temperatures, as well as superb corrosion resistance.
The HuckMAX® blind rivet system is a general purpose blind fastening system that combines important features of structural integrity and installation convenience. The system meets or exceeds all applicable requirements of industry specifications NAS1686 and NAS1687. In addition to high performance, the design of the HuckMAX® blind rivet system is such that only one tool is needed to install any diameter. This reduces the cost of assembly, and makes this fastener ideal for repair and modification use as well as new designs. A variety of materials and head styles make this blind rivet suitable for almost every application.
Huck-Clinch® blind rivets are precision-made aerospace fasteners produced to the requirements of MIL-R-7885 and NAS1686 procurement standards. The internal, integral lock makes them ideal fasteners for high-vibration, FOD critical applications. The enhanced hole-fill and sheet take-up capabilities of these fasteners provide superior static and fatigue strength for the most demanding blind rivet applications. As with the HuckMAX® blind rivet system, one tool installs all diameters.
