SPEED RIVETINGPosted: June 27, 2018
Currently this is manual. The pallet is designed, ideally, in future, to have an automated robotic assembly and speed riveting system for fast economical production line assembly and fixing. A singular example is in the link below. We would use arrays for simultaneous fast fixing. Sorry the example is not shown in the link so the link is deleted.
Rivets hold airliners together for their service lifetime, 30 plus years. There is no worry.
Nails fall out. Rivets do not.
Deck rivet protrusions are hidden and recessed into the void of the bearers.
Welding is an alternative.
