What are the typical methods used for installing flat head round body rivet nuts?

The installation of flat head round body rivet nuts typically involves a few common methods. Here are the two primary methods:
Manual Installation:
Hand Tool: For smaller-scale applications or when precision is required, manual tools such as hand-held rivet nut tools can be used. These tools are similar to hand riveters but are designed specifically for installing rivet nuts. They often come with various mandrels to accommodate different sizes of rivet nuts. The operator places the rivet nut into the tool, aligns it with the intended installation spot, and then squeezes the handles to set the rivet nut securely in place.
Wrench or Spanner: In some cases, a wrench or spanner may be used to turn the rivet nut onto a pre-tapped hole in the material. This method is often suitable for smaller-sized rivet nuts and is a manual alternative to using a dedicated tool.
Pneumatic or Hydraulic Tools:
Rivet Nut Guns: For larger-scale or industrial applications, pneumatic or hydraulic rivet nut guns are commonly employed. These tools provide more power and efficiency compared to manual tools. The rivet nut gun is placed over the rivet nut, and when activated, it compresses the rivet nut against the material, creating a secure connection.
Hydraulic Presses: In some manufacturing settings, especially for high-volume production, hydraulic presses with specialized tooling may be used for installing flat head round body rivet nuts. These presses can apply consistent and controlled force, ensuring uniform and reliable installations.

How is the strength and load-bearing capacity of flat head round body rivet nuts determined?

Material and Grade:
The material of the rivet nut is a critical factor in determining its strength. Common materials include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass. Additionally, the specific grade or alloy within each material type can impact the overall strength.
Thread Type and Pitch:
The thread type (e.g., coarse or fine) and pitch (distance between threads) play a role in the load-bearing capacity. Fine threads generally provide better resistance to vibration, while coarse threads may offer higher strength in certain applications.
Installation Method:
The method used to install the rivet nut can affect its performance. Proper installation, whether manual or using a pneumatic or hydraulic tool, ensures that the rivet nut is securely and evenly compressed against the material.
Grip Range:
The grip range refers to the thickness of the material to which the rivet nut is applied. Manufacturers specify a recommended grip range for each rivet nut size. Using a rivet nut within its designated grip range is crucial for achieving the desired strength.
Shear and Tensile Strength:
Manufacturers often provide shear and tensile strength values for their rivet nuts. Shear strength is relevant when the load is applied parallel to the plane of the material, while tensile strength is important when the load is applied perpendicular to the plane.
Material Thickness:
The thickness of the material into which the rivet nut is installed can impact its load-bearing capacity. Thicker materials may provide better support and resistance to deformation.
