How to choose suitable riveting machines? The type of riveting machine to choose should depend on the type of rivets to be working, the size of the rivets, the strength of the material being joined, and the production rate required. Ultimately, the best riveting machine for a particular application will depend on the specific requirements of the job. Before choosing a suitable riveting machine, we will clarify the following questions and details first.
1. How many different kinds of riveting machines?
2. Users should provide the following 3 details.
3. How to choose suitable riveting machines accordingly?
Overall, the riveting machine is a cold-fastening technology with great potential for use in industrial fastening. It is capable of joining two components without the need for heat, we can call it a rivets riveting machine, snap button riveting machine, eyelet grommet riveting machine. As well, because of the customary name and marketing needs, we can also call them riveting machine, snap button fastener machines, eyelet grommet machines, etc.
Its versatility and cost-effectiveness make it a popular choice for many industries, including rivets, eyelets grommets attaching, and snap button fixing. The riveting machine is also very easy to use and maintain, making it a great choice for both experienced and novice operators.
Electric mechanical riveting machines are the most cost-effective, and are often working in high-volume production settings. They are less maintenance, durable, and cheaper price.

Pneumatic riveting machines adopts hydro-pneumatic cylinder, which is driven by 4 to 8 bar compressed air, they are low noise, less maintenance, and larger power than electric mechanical riveting machines.
|For pop blind rivets||For hollow or semi-tubular rivets||For solid rivets|
Hydraulic riveting machines offer the largest power than the above 2 types of riveting machines, normally they are working for large-diameter solid rivets. When choosing the driven power, mainly we should consider two factors: rivet sizes, and clients’ needs.
|For larger diameter solid rivets||For door hinges||For multi riveting point|
Solid rivets are the most common type, and are working in many construction and manufacturing applications.
Hollow rivets or Semi-tubular rivets are similar to solid rivets, but have a hollow center.
|Hollow rivets||Semi-tubular rivets|
Blind or Pop rivets are working when access to the back of the material is not available, and are inserted from one side. These kinds of rivets are short, hollow fasteners with a mandrel, or stem, that is inserted into the rivet body. The mandrel is then pulled, which expands the rivet and securely fastens the materials together.

Shoulder rivets are a type of fastener work to connect rack shelves to storage racks. They are a great choice for shelves because they are easy to install and provide a secure connection. The shoulder of the rivet is designed to fit against the shelf, providing a strong and secure connection that prevents shelves from shifting or falling off. The shoulder also helps provide added stability and support to the storage rack.

Double caps rivets are metal fasteners with two domed heads, typically working to fasten two thin pieces of material together. It is widely working in applications including belts, jeans, and jewelry making.

Self–piercing rivets (SPR) that are working to join two or more pieces of material together. They are similar to standard rivets, but they have a special design that allows them to pierce through the material as they are set. This eliminates the need for pre–drilling holes in the material, making them a great choice for quick and easy assembly. Piercing rivets are typically made from aluminum or stainless steel, and they come in a variety of sizes and styles. They are often working in automotive, aerospace, and other industrial applications.
Eyelets and grommets are small metal rings that are inserted into cloth or leather to reinforce holes. They are usually working to lace shoelaces, secure tents, and hold up banners and flags.
|Single Eyelets||Eyelet Grommets|
Snaps are small, round, plastic buttons that are sewn onto fabric to create a secure fastening. They are commonly working in baby and children‘s clothing, as well as for uniforms and sportswear. Snaps are available in a variety of sizes and colors, and can be fastened and unfastened with a simple press of the fingers.
|Plastic snap button T3 T5 T8||Ring snap button||Spring snap button|
Rivets are typically made of stainless steel, steel, aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel, or plastic.
Rivet materials concern machine power and tonnage, generally speaking, we have to consider many factors, including rivet type, material, and rivet body diameter, to decide the driven power of machines. For example,
The riveting points’ location is a concern to the machine die base shape, throat depth, throat height, rivet gun nozzle length, etc.
Consider the production speed you need. Different types of riveting machines can have different production speeds. Clients have many options to get higher the riveting speed, such as,
