IN airframes of all‐metal construction an exceedingly important part is played by the riveting; e.g. no fewer than 250,000 rivets arc needed for the construction of a Focke‐Wulf “Condor.” It will be understood therefore why, with the increasing demands being made on the rate of aircraft production, the question of riveting methods receives such special attention. The object is, to save man‐hours, and thus to increase the rate of production.
