RIVKLE® solutions for electric vehicle battery packs 06 July 2022

Battery packs in electric vehicles must be sealed to protect the internal components from external damage and protect the exterior from the risk of toxic fumes in the event of failure. Böllhoff has therefore developed the RIVKLE® range of blind rivet nuts and studs with integrated and captive sealing function for battery pack applications.

When using the RIVKLE® range, the resulting assembly is robust and fluid tight. The entire range also meets the most stringent sealing quality requirements, including ISO 20653, IPX7 and automotive quality requirements.

In combination with Böllhoff’s automatic setting tools, the range is optimised in terms of cost and speed of installation, with an unprecedented level of validation of the quality of the implemented product.
