The present invention relates to riveting machines, and has for its object to facilitate the riveting process and render it more accurate.
The invention consists in providing two feeding devices for the rivetsand in fitting, the plunger with a doubie riveting set while the jaws are arranged jointly or separately on the rivet case which is slidingly connected rwith the set and is pressed a ainst the latter by'a spring. The case of the rivet comprises at'least two parts arranged so that a lateral opening is provided and the rivet can be introduced on the side or at the'lo'wer end of thecase. This arrangement affordsthe ad vantage thatthe jaws can grip the shankor stem of the rivet slightly below its head so that theshankremains visible underneath the jaws and it thus'becon'ies possible to determine the exact spot where riveting is to take place,which is highly important especiall i when double riveting hasto be resorted to.
One embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in
which Figure l is a front view of the plunger and feeding device; Fig. 2, a side view of the same; Pi 3, an enlarged side view of the lower part of the plunger; and Fig. at, a front view of the same.
Referring to the drawing, 1 are the rivets which are, placedin the feed drums 2 and 3' whence they pass through the two rivet 1929. Serial No. 355,512.
