Avdel Avex

Avdel Avex RivetThe Avex aluminum rivet is a multi-grip, breakstem fastener with a retained stem. It features good hole fill and a large blind-side bearing area, making the Avex ideal for use in thin sheet materials.

This aluminum rivet has a long and reliable track record in a wide range of applications and industries. Assembly applications include automotive, commercial vehicles, domestic appliances, electronics, electrical equipment, general light industrial, and heating and ventilating.

Avex can be used to fasten metal to metal, plastic to plastic, metal to plastic, and metal rear sheet.

Avdel Avibulb

High strength steel breakstem fasteners with excellent bulbing tail formation. Ideal for thin sheet materials. The Avdel Avibulb also has the advantage of good hole fill compensating for irregular, oversized, or misaligned holes.

Suited for a wide range of general engineering applications. Avibulb is often used in automotive, electronics, and cabinet and enclosure assembly applications.

Available as a special version Earth Tab Rivet which combines a zinc plated and clear passivated steel Avibulb with a brass earthing tab.

Avdel NeoSpeed Speed Fastening System

When you need strong and you need fast – you need NeoSpeed. NeoSpeed is the strongest, most versatile Speed Fastening system on the market. The Avdel NeoSpeed fastening process delivers a throughput up to four times greater than traditional threaded or breakstem fasteners.

Designed and optimized using class-leading finite element analysis techniques, NeoSpeed has a unique splined rivet design that is an industry exclusive. These speed fasteners combine high clamp throughout a wide grip range. NeoSpeed also offers multi-grip capability to accommodate wide variations in material thickness.

NeoSpeed lets you do more with less. It is also about half the installed weight of an equivalent breakstem rivet, and one NeoSpeed rivet can be used to replace several standard grip fasteners.

Most NeoSpeed variations can be supplied as either a paper magazine of fasteners, or a pre-loaded disposable mandrel "cartridge.”
