Riveting is a forging process that may be used to join parts together by way of a metal part called a rivet. The rivet acts to join the parts through adjacent surfaces. A straight metal piece is connected through the parts. Then both ends are formed over the connection, joining the parts securely. The metal work piece used to form the connection may be hollow or it may be solid. Rivets have many uses, such as in the construction and sheet metal industries.
