There are many applications of blind rivet nut in our daily lives, and there are many types of blind rivet nuts, such as flat blind rivet nuts, stainless steel blind rivet nuts, and so on. But even if I have seen a lot of blind rivet nuts, many people are still not clear about the installation of blind rivet nuts.
Whether the rivet nut is a blind rivet nut or a pressure rivet nut, it is best to require installation tools. For example, we can press the hexagon head into the preset hole of the thin plate through a press to plastically deform the periphery of the hole, and the deformed part is squeezed into the undercut groove of the pressure riveting nut column so that the pressure riveting nut column is riveted on the thin plate, To form an effective fixed internal thread on the thin plate. Of course, because the working principle of the nut is self-locking by the friction between the nut and the bolt. However, the reliability of this self-locking will be reduced in dynamic loads. On some important occasions, we will take some anti-loosening measures to ensure the reliability of the nut locking. The lock nut is one of the anti-loosening measures. When we install it, we must use a drill to drill the hole, then screw it in with an inner hexagon, and then apply glue before screwing. This method is also possible.
A blind rivet nut, countersunk head rivet nut , or other rivet nuts can all use the above installation methods, and most of them are similar.
