Riveting tool reduces margin for error 12 March 2024

50 year veteran of the fastening systems industry, Rivit, whose extensive catalogue of riveting tools, blind rivets and rivet nuts support users in several sectors, including automotive and construction, has recently confirmed that its RIV938 riveting tool is one of its most popular best-sellers for rivet-nut fastening.

The tool is designed to speed up installation times while maintaining the highest standards of precision fastening and, at an affordable cost, is, the company says, “highly appreciated” by professional users.

According to Rivit, this popular tool is capable of reducing the margin of error during fastening, due to direct and automatic operating adjustment of deformation forces, which avoids damage to rivet nuts during installation. Same time, if a rivet nut is defective, the tool’s automatic unscrewing function avoids ruining the fastening, thereby preventing unnecessary losses and associated costs, which might compromise an entire project and its supplies.

The RIV938 has been designed for the fastening of Rivsert female rivet nuts, M3 to M10, and Rivbolt male rivet nuts, M4 to M10, (both in the company catalogue), and enables quick and secure riveting. The company says it is, “the ideal tool for major automotive fastening applications”, such as the “assembly of new electric vehicle parts, including battery pack housings”. The tool’s maximum stroke reaches 6.5mm, while the motor speed measured in rpm varies: screwing -- 1600rpm, unscrewing -- 2,000rpm; in contrast, the clamping force of the RIV938 reaches 20,000N.

The tool, which is used by leading automotive manufacturers in Europe and worldwide suits industrial machining and mass production, and comes in a strong plastic carrying case for ease of transporting and the storing of riveter and accessory kit, after use.
