Abstract

1. ABSTRACT Today, Hi Lite and Hi Lock Rivets are used for structure assembly in vehicle assembly. For installation of these rivets you need access from both sides of the vehicle (inside and outside). This installation is done within two steps: 1. The rivet is driven in by using a hammer from outside 2. The collar / the nut must be installed from inside This installation is inconvenient and time-consuming. The idea is to use Rivet Bush. The installation can be done from outside the vehicle, no access from both sides is necessary. The Rivet Bush is pre-assembled and will be set into the hole by hand or tool, it will be fastened by using a hammer or specific tool like an air-nailer gun. The installation from one side has the advantage that it can be automated by using robotics. It is also possible to disassemble the installation by using a screwdriver or tool.
