RIVET pins

Analogue of the German pins TungStuds by BETEK

Iron Solutions developed wear-resistant tungsten-carbide RIVET pins in cooperation with Scientific and Production Center Donbassugol LLC for protection of the parts of function elements most subject to abrasive wear. Currently 2 types of wear-resistant pins are produced in batches: Rivet-8 with diameter of wear-resistant insert of 8 mm and Rivet-15 with diameter of wear-resistant insert of 15 mm. Rivet pins may be installed not only on function elements, but also on any other surfaces of various machines and mechanisms subject to abrasive wear.

Main advantages:

  • reliable protection of metal surface against wear;
  • quick welding;
  • increase of efficiency through reduction of service costs;
  • reduction of downtime-related costs;
  • possible application on nonstandard surfaces;
  • simplicity and possibility of selective replacement of worn-out pin components.



  • protection of mechanisms of tunnel boring machines;
  • protection of screw conveyors of cutter loaders;
  • protection of shafts of crushing units;
  • protection of unloading side of loading shovel;
  • protection of work surface of drills.

RIVET pins have been implemented and successfully applied in operating units of the following enterprises: State Enterprise "Anthracite”, DTEK Sverdlovanthracite LLC, Obukhovskaya Coal Mine (Russian Federation) etc.
