    i have query on orlock can this be used for thin sheet application such as 1.5+1.5 mm galvinised
    sheet which grip of 3 mm , in this case conventional riveting method of blind rivet is used
    the customer use a 4×10 mm rivet of steel in this case open ended one , he is using around 2000 nos per day, it quite good volume

    but my query is what is cost benefit if it can be done with orlock of same dia , will the cost come down by reducing the nos of rivet ( normal pop rivet is cost less compare to orlock)
    can there be a thumb rule says that orlock offers x % strength to the job compare to normal pop rivet. can you have some data on that.
