Launched this summer, Bralo’s new BNT range of riveting tools has been created in response to high customer requirements in different sectors and industries.
Each one of the new Bralo BNT pneumatic riveting tools (BNT-1, BNT-2, BNT-3, BNT-4 and BNT-5) are pitched as robust, reliable, and the lightest on the market.
Using tempered aluminium for strength and durability in the tool body, each tool features a reduced weight, largely to meet the needs of the automotive markets and assembly lines. Material and design combine to reduce tool vibration for increased comfort and safety, while ergonomic grips boost operator comfort. A highly resistant gum base provides stability after use and new transparent mandrel collectors have been created to allow timely emptying and avoid jamming.
BRALO BNT riveters also include an adjustable suction valve which, depending on the application, can be activated or not, providing energy savings, cutting tool down time and speeding up production. The valve would be used when, against the effect of gravity, it is required that the rivet is subjected in the nozzle. In addition, this system can graduate depending on the weight of the rivet, achieving a saving of compressed air.
On its outside, it has an integrated valve that cuts aspiration achieving that all the introduced pressure is used exclusively for the riveting process. These riveters do not waste the air in other mechanisms, such as the recovery, or the suction of the rivet, and thanks to this valve, 100% of the possible force is obtained, Bralo says.
- BNT-1 for standard aluminium or steel rivets from 3mm – 3.2mm – 4mm.
- BNT-2 for long stem S-trebol and peeled rivets.
- BNT-3 for 4.8mm stainless steel and structural rivets.
- BNT-4 for 6.4mm Hard Lock, 6mm Hard Grip, 6.4mm steel and 4.8mm structural rivets.
- BNT-5 for 6.5mm structural and 7.7mm S-trebol rivets.
Bralo said the BNT riveters are approved for the most demanding industries, as automotive, construction, infrastructure, ventilated facades, appliances, solar panels, etc, and they have a high performance result where a professional and quality riveting is required.
