Common rivets
Commonly used are semi-round head, flat head, semi-tubular rivets, solid rivets, countersunk rivets, blind rivets, hollow rivets, which are usually connected to the riveted parts by their own deformation. (Generally, cold riveting is used for those smaller than 8 mm, and hot riveting is used for larger ones.) But there are exceptions. For example, the nameplate on the three-ring lock is riveted by the interference between the rivet and the lock body hole.
Rivet use
Half-round head rivets are mainly used for riveting occasions with larger lateral loads, and are the most widely used.
Flat cone-head rivets are corrosion-resistant due to their fat heads, and are often used in riveting occasions with strong corrosion such as ship hulls and boiler tanks.
Countersunk head and 1200 countersunk head rivets are mainly used for riveting occasions where the surface must be smooth and the load is not large.
Semi countersunk head and 1200 semi countersunk head rivets are mainly used for riveting occasions where the surface must be smooth and the load is not large.
Flat head rivets are used for riveting occasions with general loads.
Flat head and oval head rivets are mainly used for riveting metal sheets or non-metallic materials such as leather, canvas, and wood.
Large flat head rivets are mainly used for riveting non-metallic materials.
Semi-hollow rivets are mainly used for riveting occasions with low load.
Headless rivets are mainly used for riveting non-metallic materials.
Hollow rivets are light in weight and weak in nail heads, and are used for riveting non-metallic materials with low load.
Tubular rivets are used for riveting non-metallic materials without load.
Sign rivets are mainly used for riveting nameplates on machines and equipment.
