GESIPA® Speed Rivet Technology 14 August 2014

GESIPA® has added a new member to its vast product range – GESIPA® Speed Rivet Technology.

Speed rivets are the ideal connectors for all applications with low strength requirements and fast rates. They are used in the switch cabinet building, lighting, electrical engineering, household appliance building and lightweight constructions industries, among others.

Alongside the cost-efficiency achieved through the use of the tried and tested GESIPA® TAURUS® modular system, GESIPA focused on user safety and convenient working. The standard safety lock relieves tension on the chuck jaws, allowing mandrels to be replaced safely. GESIPA points out that the optional cut off valve and tool-less access to the chuck jaws also makes maintenance and repairs especially fast and convenient.

The extremely lightweight construction of the TAURUS 1 Speed Rivet (pictured right) – the device weighs just 1,800g – and the automatic rivet feed means that the worker always has a free hand and therefore a secure hold on the work piece. The large diameter of the device base also guarantees secure standing.

The TAURUS 1 Speed Rivet offers low vibration and is sound insulated. Its ergonomic construction and comfortable softgrip areas also make working pleasant and fatigue free even for longer periods.

All mandrels, speed rivets and nosepieces common on the market can be easily adapted to the GESIPA TAURUS 1 Speed Rivet. However, with occupational safety and process reliability in mind, GESIPA recommends using GESIPA speed rivets and GESIPA disposable mandrels.
