Taking the effort out of riveting

Many lever riveters can only be operated with a great deal of force. The process of fitting several blind rivet nuts one after the other then becomes a tiring exercise.

The new Tectool TF 608 lever riveter from Tecfast Verbindungssysteme reduces the force required to set blind rivet nuts by 30%.

Having to set the right level of pull is frequently a hindrance to getting the job started quickly. If you are working with unfamiliar materials, the adjustment is often forgotten or incorrectly set. With the TF 608 you no longer have to worry about it. Laborious adjustment of the length of pull is no longer required.

Thanks to the spring-back effect and the positioning of the upper handle, the risk of overloading the lever riveter is a thing of the past. Preventing any overloading of the thread in the blind rivet nut also eliminates the risk of breaking the threaded mandrel in the tool.

The TF 608 lever riveter for blind rivet nuts is designed for use with M5 to M10 blind rivet nuts and M5 to M8 blind rivet bolts. The riveter is supplied in a plastic case that also includes nosepieces for M5 to M8 blind rivet nuts. A nosepiece for M10 blind rivet nuts and nosepieces for M5 to M8 blind rivet bolts are available as an option.
