  • Grant Riveters recently displayed its latest products at the Assembly Technology Exposition 2006 in Rosemont, Chicago. Thousands stopped by Booth #931 in the Main Hall to witness Grant Riveters rivet two pieces of plate glass together with a steel rivet so tight that the two glass discs would not rotate but did not break. It was something to see! Thank you all for visiting.

  • Grant Riveters introduces its new Monitoring, Control and Real-Time Inspection System At the ATExpo 2005 in Chicago at the Donald E. Stephen Convention Center in Rosemont. Individuals watch Grant Riveters and the Kistler Corporation monitor, control and inspect each riveting and press cycle! Individuals were amazed as we riveted glass so tight that the glass did not break and was so tight that the two pieces of glass won't rotate. Now this is control!

    Ask the competition to demonstrate this. Yeah right!
