RIVTAC® High-speed joining
The innovative joining process for numerous materials.
The RIVTAC® technology is particularly suitable for joints of aluminium, steel, plastics, non-ferrous metals as well as for mixed joints, multiple-layer joints and hybrid joints of these materials.
High-speed joining is an innovative joining process with multiple advantages
- Joining without pre-punching in case of one-sided accessibility
- Reduction of joining and cycle times to a minimum
- Joining of high-strength materials
- Flexible application for mixed joints, multiple-layer joints and hybrid joints
- Optimal possibility of combination with adhesion technology
The tack hits the components to be joined at high speed and penetrates the materials of both components.
Due to a short-term rise in temperature in the joining zone and the resulting improved flowabilty, the joining part material can be displaced into the straight knurlings of the tack shaft. As a result, a high form fit can be achieved.
Moreover, for higher-strength steel materials, there is a non-positive connection due to grouting and compression of the material.
Fully automatic system for stored feeding
The new RIVTAC® automation system enables fully automatic joining. It is designed for high volume applications and provides maximum flexibility in production planning.
Further information as well as technical data for the RIVTAC® system are provided in our flyer.
