Quality Process Information



Delivering the right product and at the right time is important, but to Industrial Rivet it is only part of the equation. Since rivets are permanent, they must be of the highest quality, which is why the company uses an advanced computerized quality control system to inspect each and every one of its products in terms of both consistency and reliability.

With a deep understanding of local and onsite management inventory (VMI), Industrial Rivet can add value to your supply chain. Unlike other OEMs that put the burden of inventory management on the distributor, we participate in your VMI programs by stocking and releasing products while also giving you the competitive advantage of higher purchase quantities. In addition to helping you with fastener design and technical assistance, Industrial Rivet also offers a wide range of packaging and kitting services. Plus, our quality control measures go beyond the standard to include the coating on your fasteners with our salt spray testing.
With this technology, we create an accelerated corrosive environment in a controlled chamber to accurately evaluate a part’s resistance to rust – providing you with detailed reports, as well as digital photos, lab reports and more. This added step gives you peace of mind knowing how your fastener will perform over time.

Additional quality control systems are in place for specific products such as the company’s Salt Spray chamber that confirms the effectiveness and longevity of plated material in an accelerated corrosive environment. Shear, tensile and break load testing is also performed onsite regularly to gauge the structural integrity of each inspected product. As a result, Industrial Rivet as a whole has been ISO certified for more than a decade and many of the company’s manufacturing facilities are also TS16949 accredited. The company is also currently in the process of obtaining A2LA accreditation for 2011.
