What is a riveter A devise used to install a rivet in order to fasten two object together.
How does a riveter work Rivet guns consists of handles attached to wheels, ratchets, or friction plates that pull the rivet pin into the rivet. When the rivet guns handles are pulled together, this pulls the pin of the rivet into the gun. Causing the rivet to expand in the hole holing the metal. This presses the head up against the gun, flattening it in the process.

Importance of Riveters Rivet and riveters are very important to permanently fasten two object together. Rivets are primarily used in order to achieve a semi-monocoque structure in aircraft, automotive, and construction
History and future of Rivets Rivets were originally used in almost all mechanical fastening applications Early rivets had a high failure rate and were replaced by welding and bolts Recently rivets have been improved and offer a viable means of mechanical fastening that is cheap, strong, and reliable. These rivets are used in conjunction with welding and bolts.
