Gesipa® GAV automatic riveting systems

Gesipa Logo

As the leading provider of innovative riveting solutions, Gesipa® has revolutionised industrial riveting with its advanced GAV Automatic Feed Riveting system. The GAV system is designed to streamline and automate the process of riveting, improving efficiency and productivity in various industrial applications.

The GAV Automatic Rivet Gun system consists of a combination of hardware and software components. Using the rivet gun variants, it can be operated manually or integrated into robotic systems.

There are three different installation guns available:

A standard rivet gun with a hose assembly fed from below

The standard rivet gun is used for manual operation. It is compatible with vertical and horizontal riveting alike. It is the most economical variant, which can be fitted with an additional handle to improve ergonomics. This is particularly beneficial in a vertical riveting process application.

Standard Robotic Rivet Gun
Overhead Robotic Rivet Gun

The overhead rivet gun is designed for applications when the hose assembly is in the way of the operator’s legs or when it might contact sensitive surfaces. It is also available with contact pressure monitoring.

The robotic rivet gun can be used as part of fully automatic manufacturing systems and those operated by robots. It can be configured with an additional handle (with a trigger button) for manual operations.
