Flexriv®: Increases functionality, reduces encumbrance 03 April 2017

Rivit Srl has introduced the Flexriv® - a flexible container for spent mandrels, which will enable a riveting tool to go wherever the work is - making easy work of difficult to access spaces.

All riveting tools equipped with a suction device normally have a rigid spent mandrel container, which makes the tool too bulky when you have to work in difficult to access spaces. The eventual absence of the container on the tool, in case you decide to remove it, would expose the operator to the risk that the mandrel jumps toward his face or eyes.

Designed to be used on the RIV503, RIV504 and RIV505 riveters, the patented Flexriv® solves this problem – its flexibility enables the tool to work in any tough condition, and the spent mandrels to be automatically drawn into the container, thus allowing the operator to work in total safety.

With Flexriv, the length of the tool is also reduced by approximately 100mm, and helps the operator stay in axis with the mandrel of the rivet, avoiding any possible uneven breaking, which could cause the tool jamming.
