Cardinal Components is a Preferred Authorized Industrial Rivet Distributor (for Goebel® and RivetKing®) in the United States (standard blind, structural, multi-grip, and lock bolts). To provide our customers the best availability and variety we also offer non-Industrial Specialty Rivets & Fasteners (including from SI Penn Engineering).

CUSTOMER SERVICE: Our standard is to offer short lead-times at competitive pricing, revert quotes the same day and answer the phone by the third ring.

We can help along each step: design, prototype, PPAP, assembly, installation and issue resolution. Our deep technical expertise is communicated in a way that you can understand it specific to your application.

INSTALLATION TOOLING: If you are looking for rivet installation tools, we offer industry-leading Industrial Rivet installation tools, such as the Industrial Rivet pneumatic RK9000 series (9000S, 9000M & 9000LS) and Industrial Rivet battery tool (RK-401CR). These pneumatic tools are for medium-to-high volume production requirements and install fasteners in about three seconds while being built of the highest quality and reliability. As you know, a good tool = a good install. We stock repair parts for same day shipment and have a tool repair lab with quick turnaround. For low-volume installation tooling, give us a call to learn about the variety of manual tools we offer to facilitate your perfect installation. Did you know we can video conference to troubleshoot difficulties with tools or fasteners? Visit our installation tools page for more information!
