Through cold heading, we produce custom shoulder rivets suitable for use in industrial storage racks, bed frames, and other assembling applications. Custom engineered, cold-headed rivets from Anderson Manufacturing exhibit good compressive and shear strength. Our facility is equipped with a full line of cold forming machines to meet your simple as well as complex fastening requirements.
These progressive cold forming machines enable us to manufacture precision shoulder rivets from aluminum, stainless steel, and brass, in wire ranging up to 0.750" in diameter. Depending on your specific fastening requirements, we manufacture shoulder rivets in a variety of standard as well as custom head styles.
Anderson Manufacturing utilizes optical sorters and roll sorting machines to detect any defect in the production lots. Using our cold forming, rolling, trimming, and packaging machines, we meet your custom fastening needs, from start to finish. Our qualified sub-contract partners can handle all your painting, heat treatment, and plating requirements.
A local U.S. manufacturer of household appliances was importing safety-critical stainless steel shoulder rivets from Asia. The company consistently had quality issues with the rivets, and the time difference and long delivery lag created problems when product became unusable.
