Inspection Gaging - Installation Sequence


Step 1
HUCKCOMP® fasteners for automatic installation in composite materials
The pin is inserted into the hole from one side by the drill riveter machine. The Collar is automatically feed to the pin and placed over the locking groove section.

Step 2
The swage anvil then moves into position and begins to develop clamp-up while swaging the collar. The pin is supported by the upper ram of the drill riveter machine during the swaging action

Step 3
Collar swage is complete when the drill riveter machine reaches the pre-set swage force. At this time clamp force has been generated due to the extrusion of the collar that creates a corresponding stretch of the pin. The retained clamp load developed is over 50% of the fastener ultimate tensile.

Step 4
The swage anvil is ejected by machine ejection force after collar is completely swaged. The installation is complete.
