Blind Rivet Nuts

Using one-piece blind rivet nuts (BRN), load-bearing threads can be inserted into thin sheet metal elements and hollow materials.

These blind rivet nuts can be installed ‘blind’ from one side; access from both sides is not required. They are used in railway technology, the automotive industry, and in the entire mechanical and system-engineering sector, where due to thin-walled component designs, no thread cutting is possible.

A mounting hole suitable for the blind rivet nut must be inserted into a carrier material for installation. The blind rivet nut threaded onto the machining tool is then inserted into this opening. The machining tool ‘braces’ the blind rivet nut between a mandrel screwed into its thread, and the head of the blind rivet nut
