- The flare rivet is provided with a cylindrical or conical bore that is aligned with the resilient centering pin of the die.
- When the retaining jaws seat the rivet, the punch presses the rivet onto the centering pin in a self-centering manner.
- The die shape forces the flanging edge.
- Flanging riveting is suitable for rotatable joints and also for fixed joints.
- The flanging forces are lower than the upsetting forces when solid rivets are processed.
