Air-powered blind rivet installation tools compress blind rivets to join two pieces of metal. Rivets are placed into a pre-drilled hole, and the tool compresses the end and breaks the rivet mandrel to leave a clean surface. The rivet mandrel is then ejected from the tool. Blind rivets (sometimes called pop rivets) can be installed when there is access to only one side of the workpiece.
Air-powered rivet nut installation tools install threaded rivet nuts (sometimes called rivnuts or nutserts) into metal when a threaded hole is needed and the metal workpiece is too thin for a thread. The threaded nut is inserted into a pre-drilled hole and the riveting tool compresses the back side of the rivet nut to secure it in place. When finished, the insert sits flush with the top-facing surface of the workpiece.
