Technical details

The AUTORIV A230-BI setting tool is generally designed for automatic processing of blind rivet fasteners. The force is controlled by a hydropneumatic pressure booster and a hydraulic cylinder. The tool is carried by the robotic unit. It already contains partial electrical and pneumatic components. An additional pneumatic box contains all of the electric and pneumatic components used. Furthermore, the hydropneumatic booster is located on the frame of the pneumatic box.

Processing of blind rivet fasteners

The quality of fasteners limits or maximizes the automation possibilities

A fastener that is optimally matched to the automatic processing ensures extremely high availability. For this reason, AUTORIV consistently offers fasteners that are designed to fit the associated automation.

The A230-BI mobile robotic tool stands for a fully automatic, process-safe and high-quality processing of blind rivet nuts and blind rivet bolts with thread sizes M5 to M10 for nuts and M5 to M8 for bolts.

The joining of parts made of thin and thick sheet metal, as well as plastic is possible. The processing of blind rivet nuts and studs of the BI-series is done with pilot hole in the component.

Blind rivet nuts are available with round and hexagonal shaft. The outer diameter or head diameter is min. 10 mm to max. 22, the total height is min. 13 mm to max. 30 mm.

Blind rivet studs are available with a round shaft. The shaft length is max. 30 mm, the outer diameter of the head min. 10 mm to max. 22 mm.

Individual solutions for blind rivet fasteners are possible upon request.
