Battery tool allow portable riveting

The eRiv b10 battery riveting tool from Avdel has been developed for users who require total portability for on-site or field work or who want to eliminate compressed air lines from their workplace to improve workstation access, EHS and production efficiency.

Air line maintenance costs are also eliminated.

Lighter in weight and more compact than other battery tools the riveter also improves manoeuvrability in difficult applications, Avdel claims. The 14.4 V tool, which offers a high pull force of 9 kN and a long stroke of 21 mm, can place breakstem rivets ranging from 3.0 - 5.0 mm nominal diameter and a powerful LED lamp array illuminates the application in low light environments.

The transparent quick release stem collector bottle ensures the spent stem level is always visible while the 1.5 Ah lithium-ion battery has a charge time of just 60 minutes and is equipped with a charge indicator that shows the charge condition.
