What Tools Does an Aerospace Engineer Use?

The tools that an aerospace engineer use on the job are one of, if not the most important part their job. Over the past 100 years engineers from all over have experienced work related injuries due to the vibration caused by their tools, and Honsa Aerospace Tools has committed to change that with their line of riveters and low vibration bucking bars to help engineers reduce or eliminate injury on the job. Let take a close look at the tools of the trade that an aerospace engineer uses. 


An example of a riveter made in the USA by Honsa Aerospace

A riveter is one of the integral tools of an aerospace engineer. Airplanes are manufactured with riveted joints where two components of the airplane are held together with a fastener known as a rivet. Having an effective riveter is a must. Honsa offers a line of riveters that are lightweight, comfortable, and will get the job done effectively. Most importantly, you can reduce harmful riveter vibration without sacrificing power and performance. For an aerospace engineer, their riveter is an extension of themselves, and a very important part of their job. 

Bucking Bars

Bucking Bars are essential to the riveting process

Bucking Bars are essential to the riveting process. They are used in “driving” also known as “setting” rivets. They are made in different shapes and sizes depending on the exact specifications of the job they are meant to accomplish. Honsa manufacturers over 300 types of bucking bars to fit the needs of aerospace engineers. They are made out of the highest quality materials, each bucking bars is made from either:

  • Tungsten
  • Hardened steel 
  • Stainless steel

Honsa bucking bars are made to work in tandem with our riveters, and provide a low vibration experience for hardworking aerospace engineers. Reducing or eliminating on the job injuries. 

Honsa Makes Ergonomics a Priority

At Honsa Aerospace, our passion centers around making tools safer and more comfortable for engineers to use. We understand that vibration associated with riveters causes injury when using a typical riveter and bucking bars. Giving aerospace engineers the tools they need to get the job done, and get it done safely is our goal.
