One battery system, six riveters 30 January 2020

BRALO has launched a new range of battery riveting tools BET (BRALO Electronic Tool) to provide greater autonomy, versatility and efficiency to the industry, and offer a complete solution without a cable – meeting the fastener needs of customers, both with rivets or with insert nuts.

With a system of interchangeable batteries of 2Ah and 4Ah, and only one charger, the range of BET riveting tools achieves a high-speed of work, together with a high power to cover a wide range of applications in standard rivets. These include structural rivets, S-Trebol or lockbolts, as well as for insert nuts up to M12.

The BET range of riveting tools also has a battery life indicator with LED lights to show the battery charge level; a transparent mandrel collector with quick emptying of the mandrel container to offer greater safety and cleaning of the work area; as well as a reinforced piece for a safe ejection of mandrels.

The BET tools’ hanging rings make them especially suitable for use in assembly lines. The range features a balanced and ergonomic design, and a high sensitivity trigger to achieve fast and quality riveting. The tools’ ergonomic handles also provide a secure and comfortable grip for the operator in any application.

BRALO says its new range of riveting tools is very easy to use and maintain. Its battery system also provides the necessary freedom to access outdoor applications where it is difficult to reach with a pneumatic riveter, or simply benefit from the convenience of not being tied to a cable. Its balanced and ergonomic design provides a conformable use of the tool, with hardly any noise or vibrations, protecting the operator.
