PR-5 Battery Powered Self-piercing Rivet Machine

We are pleased to offer the PR-5 battery powered self-piercing rivet setting machine. We have added this machine to our range specifically to help our sheet metal and HVAC customers. We feel it will also be of interest to vehicle body shop customers as vehicle bodies are increasingly assembled using Self Piercing rivets.

The PR5-5 can also be used to set semi-tubular, full tubular and solid rivets as well as having rivet extraction capabilities

Because of our long experience in self-piercing and the fact that to many SME’s it is an unknown quantity, the product is only sold after we have proved its capability to potential customers by riveting the application that they have in mind to their total satisfaction

The rivet specification is key to the joint performance when the rivet is set and so the machine will only be sold only when we have set and tested the rivet joint to the customer’s satisfaction, this also acts as a training platform for those unfamiliar with the technology to ensure its correct operation in the field

It is vitally important that the correct rivet is used to ensure a secure joint. Changes in material thickness will affect the performance of the joint. Any changes of this type should always be discussed with us prior to implementation as a different rivet configuration may be required

As well as the machine and tooling the PR-5 comes complete with two rechargeable 18V batteries together with a 240/110 V charger for continuous operation of the unit

Customers interested in purchasing the PR-5 should send samples of the material they intend to rivet together and any associated drawings (to ensure access for the frame of the machine), we will then
