  • Patent number: 10118215
    Abstract: Blind rivet setting device and method. The blind rivet setting device includes a housing; a pulling mechanism arranged in the housing; an electric motor structured and arranged move the pulling mechanism in a pulling direction out of a rivet receiving position; a control device, which is structured and arranged to control the motor, including a tear-off detection device that generates a mandrel tear-off signal when a pulling mandrel is torn off; and an operating device that is connected to the control device. When the mandrel tear-off signal is generated, the control device stops the driving of the pulling mechanism in the pulling direction.

  • Patent number: 9574595
    Abstract: A blind rivet arrangement (1) is described, comprising multiple rivet bodies (3, 3a, 3b) arranged in succession on a mandrel (2), the mandrel (2) having a mandrel head (8) with an outside diameter which is greater than an inside diameter of the rivet bodies (3, 3a, 3b). The aim is to provide an inexpensive way to produce a blind rivet arrangement that works effectively. To this end the mandrel (2) and the mandrel head (8) are designed as parts that are produced separately and joined together.

  • Patent number: 8631554
    Abstract: The device includes pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, a switch valve connecting the pneumatic cylinder either to an outlet channel or a pressure supply, and an actuating element to switch the switch valve into a second position connecting a control line, open to the environment until closed by reaching a setting limit, to a pressure supply via a throttle and the switch valve. A pressure control valve having a control chamber connected to the pressure supply is structured so that pressures in the control chamber and the control line act on first and second control surfaces in the first and second switch position directions, respectively. The actuating element relieves pressure on the control chamber to move the pressure control valve into the second switch position to connect a motor line and switch channel of the switch valve to the pressure supply, which switches the switch valve into the first position.
