The Hand Tool Calibration Unit measures the pulling force for pneumatic and hydro-pneumatic rivet nut tools to ensure the tool is meeting the required setting force to install into the application.
With the ability to measure the pulling force of a tool before performing an install, operators, are assured the tool is calibrated correctly for a perfect install. This will help manufactures and operators improve the quality of their rivet nut installations in real time.
“The development of the Hand Tool Calibration Unit is a direct result from feedback from our customers and manufactures,” said Sherex president, Adam Pratt. “Our customers wanted a tool that could show the pulling force of both pneumatic and hydro-pneumatic tools, and get results in real time. Manufacturers and operators will see an increase in quality, and will be able to better determine if their spin-spin or spin-pull tools need to be calibrated or require maintenance.”
Improving the quality of rivet nut installations has trickle-down benefits that will help manufactures save money, schedule maintenance, and decrease waste.
“This is more than just a calibration unit, it’s a tool to ensure quality,” Pratt said. “Every manufacture that uses pneumatic or hydro-pneumatic tools to install rivet nuts should have this asset at their work station.”
