HOT RIVETING

The art of hot or pneumatic riveting is something of a dying art, however it’s a skill here at McEwen’s that we have gladly preserved and practise regularly today.

We have found over the last few years that we have been asked on a frequent basis to provide quotations to carry out hot riveting both on-site and at our Pennine workshop.

With a large collection of riveting equipment at our mercy, and personnel who have been taught the skills from apprentice level, we can offer a solution to virtually any riveting problem.

CASE STUDY: HOT RIVETING ENGINEERING PROJECT
CLIENT: WALTER WATSON Hot Riveting Project
JOB: CARRYING OUT HOT RIVETING TO STRUCTURAL STEELWORK

SCOPE OF WORK
We were asked by Walter Watson’s of Northern Ireland to carry out hot riveting to approx 15 steel beams that were to be installed within the new Apple Store on Princess Street in Edinburgh.

This totalled around 2500 rivets which were sourced locally and then put by our team at our works. The work itself was hot and heavy but thoroughly enjoyable and a real change to working on industrial boilerplant.

The project itself was done over about a four week period through the middle of winter and we were glad of the rivet heating furnace to keep us all warm from the deep snow and ice.
