Aluminium rivets should not be used in situations where they have to carry tensile loading. The above information refers to conventional solid rivets, In the attachment of sheet metal panels much use is made of proprietary fasteners, which are easy to use and which are suitable for blind riveting (access to only side of the joint). Examples of these are the well-known ‘pop’ and ‘chobert’ rivets, both of tubular form. Pop-rivets come in diameters up to about 5 mm. They can exert a limited clamping action, provided care is taken with plate fit-up during closing, but they do not fill the hole so well as a cold-driven solid rivet.
MIG is the more widely employed, especially for heavier construction, using weld geometries and preparations similar to those in structural steel. TIG is employed for small welds in light gauge material, and also for making repairs to MIG welds. The essential feature in both processes is a flow of inert gas from the welding torch, which shields the arc and weld-pool from the air and so prevents oxidation. The standard gas for aluminium is argon. An alternative possibility is helium, although this has limited application today.
This can occasionally cause problems with the wire kinking and jamming in the tube. 8 mm wire, avoids this problem by pulling the wire through the tube. This adds further to the complexity of the torch. The MIG process has two special attributes. First, it is suitable for posi-tional welding, including overhead. Second, the arc-length is selfadjust-ing. In other words, when the welder accidentally moves the torch nearer or further away from the job, the burn-off rate momentarily changes until the right amount of wire is sticking out again, thus maintaining the correct arc-length automatically.
