Our standard range of more than 80 models of riveting machines allows us to offer you the most suitable "Orbital or Radial" assembly technology.ee to the product.
By riveting, we mean deforming a rivet so as to create a head to hold several parts together. The rivet can be an axis or a jog.
Creep riveting makes it possible to produce fixed or articulated assemblies. It also makes it possible to carry out riveting of particular shapes without difficulty (square tube of a ladder bar for example).

They say the radial is “better” than the orbital, is that true?
Each technique has advantages depending on the type of material to be deformed, the hardness, the shape, etc. For example, it is recommended to use radial for hard materials, especially stainless steel, because the deformation of the material is more gradual. and the risk of cracks in the material at the periphery is avoided.
On the other hand, in the applications of tubular rivets, or deformation of tubes (shock absorbers, etc.), the radial must be avoided because the radial deformation moves the material towards the center then outwards, passing through the center again, which can modify the geometry of the part.
GUILLEMIN is the only riveting specialist who has truly mastered both techniques for many decades. This is why we do not promote a technique, but define the best solution for each case.
