Rivets have been used in assembly for hundreds of years. Although the principles have remained the same, the tools we use to install rivets continues to improve. Makita is already the industry leader in providing precision torque clutch tools for the ever-changing assembly environment, and now we have used that experience to develop our latest offering: Cordless Rivet Tools.
Using pneumatics to power your tooling is becoming more and more problematic. Battery operated tools reduce the high costs associated with air systems, increase ergonomics for your operators, and allow for greater mobility by eliminating hoses. Air compressors deliver inconsistent pressure which can greatly effect your pulling force. Makita’s cordless riveter will ensure your quality by maintaining consistency with every fastener and eliminate errors in your assembly processes. Powered by our 18v, 5.0ah battery, there is no job too small for our next-generation rivet-installation tool.
Makita’s brushless motors deliver up to 4,500 pounds of force (20kN) and they are capable of pulling aluminum, steel, and stainless riviets. Makita offers two models with pulling strokes up to 1 1/8” (30mm) that can handle rivet sizes including 1/4” (6.4mm) and below.
Makita is the industry leader in providing manufacturers alternatives to pneumatics, and cordless assembly tools will continue to change how manufacturers approach their assembly needs. Today’s battery tools offer manufacturers huge savings in costs associated with energy, while giving you a technological advantage in your production environment. As manufacturers seek out new technologies to better improve their processes, Makita will continue to offer tooling that exceeds the expectations of our customers.
Although rivets have been around for hundreds of years, you don’t have to use ancient technology. Battery tools are the future in rivet applications. Leave your hose behind and join the 21st century with Makita’s line-up of cordless rivet tools.
