The customer ordered a Model 600 electro-mechanical rivet setter, which is an excellent machine for manufacturers that expect efficiency in a medium-duty model that sets steel, semi-tubular rivets up to 3/16” diameter. Putting aside their usual “battleship grey” paint, National Rivet purchased several gallons of pink paint to complete the customer’s request (naturally, it was a rush job as well) and sent “Rosie” out the door.
National Rivet has always welcomed orders for customized machines. Typically, the customer has a challenging part — an intricate shape, delicate material or complex assembly method — and wants help to ensure that obtaining good quality doesn’t sacrifice productivity or vice versa.
“We’ve custom built thousands of machines since our founding in the 1928, but none of them were pink,” said Bur Zeratsky, Executive Vice President of National Rivet. “Building this riveter became a very important project for employees as many of them know people who have been impacted by breast cancer.”
