Solid Body Rivets and Semi-Tubular Rivets

MW Components offers custom rivet manufacturing in a variety of sizes and styles. Our top rivet products include solid body rivets and semi-tubular rivets.

Solid body rivets, or solid body shoulder rivets, provide a quick and inexpensive solution to join workpieces while allowing for rotation of the riveted joint. They act as a bearing surface when the rivet shank is secured to the non-rotating part of the assembly. They are useful in many settings and are often found in automotive assemblies, scissor lift assemblies, and furniture manufacturing, to name a few.

Semi-tubular rivets offer a 12 point design with up to 21% greater clamp load in an equal size head. Using the cold forming method, this 12 point bolt can be crafted from a variety of materials. Semi-tubular rivets are great for high pressure applications such as turbines, utility infrastructure, and engines in the agriculture, automotive, construction and infrastructure, energy, and transportation industries.
