Conference paper


To achieve effective control of the riveting force in the electromagnetic riveting system and improve riveting efficiency, a theoretical analysis of electromagnetic riveting force is given. The Ansoft Maxwell 2D finite element software was used to establish the coil coupling model and circuit model respectively, and the numerical simulation of the influence factors of electromagnetic riveting force was studied. The results show that the electromagnetic force is perpendicular to the slave coil and is non-uniformly distributed in the radial direction, moreover, the maximum value is located at half the slave coil radius. The voltage, capacitance, inductance, and resistance in the discharge loop have a great influence on the electromagnetic force, but their effects are quite different. To verify the numerical simulation results, the electromagnetic force was actually measured and compared with the simulation results. The results show that the simulation results are credible.
