R-N Logo R-N Rivet Nut

The R-N Series® is ideal for applications requiring heavy push out loads such as for the attachment of leg leveling screws to the bottom of equipment.

R-N Series® RivetNut Threaded Insert

R-N Series® RivetNut Threaded Insert features a heavy duty head profile and increased wall thickness in the collapse area. This makes the R-N RivetNut ideal for leg leveling.

R-N Series® RivetNut Threaded Insert can be installed using AVK’s SPP™ Pneumatic/Hydraulic Tools. The R-N Insert’s heavier wall thickness and resulting upset load requires this type of tool be used for installation. The R-N Insert can be installed either prior to or after finish.

The R-N Series® Rivet Nut - Design Benefits

INCREASED PUSH-OUT LOADS are achievable in leg leveling applications when using the R-N Series® due to its heavy duty head profile and thick wall construction.
SUPERIOR THREAD STRENGTH is provided due to our internal rolled thread manufacturing process.
SUPERIOR CORROSION RESISTANCE is provided by our standard cadmium finish (72 hrs. salt spray).
UNIFORM INSTALLATION is guaranteed because of the dimensional tolerances and concentricity tolerances built into our product made possible by our cold forming technology.
AVAILABLE in steel and aluminum. For additional materials, Contact AVK for availability.

 

COLD FORMING TECHNOLOGY™
HOW IT WORKS FOR YOU
The R-N Series® Rivet Nuts are manufactured using state-of-the-art cold forming technology. This provides very precise tolerances. All surfaces of the R-N Series® are FORMED, not machined. This provides excellent quality. The internal thread of the R-N Series® Rivet Nut is roll FORMED not machined. This provides excellent thread strength.

The R-N Series® Rivet Nut - Various Design Types

CLOSED END

Thread area is enclosed eliminating leakage past the threads from either side of the application. Contact AVK for availability.

KEYED HEAD

An underside of the head “key” projection when placed into a matching “keyed” hole design provides additional torque resistance. Contact AVK for availability.

100° COUNTERSUNK HEAD

A 100° countersunk head profile when installed into a matching countersunk hole provides a flush installation. Contact AVK for availability.
