RK-MTC
MultiTool Controller
for data exchange
(FreeSet-3 models only)

WIFI Communication • Cordless communication between controller and all FreeSet-3 smart riveting tool models.  Depending on configuration, this device can control up to 20 riveting tools. 

Force and Stroke Data • Can be exchanged between tool to controller, and controller to your PLC or plant control system via Profibus, Profinet, Open Protocol, PFCS, or IPSQ.  Optionally pass/fail can be conveyed using 24V discrete I/O. 

PLC Integration • Can be used to lock down fixtures, count and qualify rivet sets and release fixtured parts.

Trend Analysis • Can be reviewed by collecting the data stored local to the controller. Access to tool configuration is possible using FreeSet Manager software, or IP App. 

Fault and Maintenance Management • Any events that trigger a fault are recorded in the data collected. Tool maintenance reminders can be set using the FreeSet manager software. 

Breakthrough Technologies • The first riveting tool of its kind which can barcode scan, use WiFi to communicate with external systems and qualify the rivet using the load cell.   Measuring forces with a load cell, are far more accurate over time in comparison with transducers, current measurement and strain gages.

Quality & Process Monitoring • Count rivets, qualify the process, communicate with external system, measure your results over time, document them and prevent failures by stopping them before it continues to move through production.

Safer Work Environment • Eliminates trip hazards • Improved ergonomics – no hose to drag around • No hoses to dirty or scratch painted or finished surfaces • Improves air quality by eliminating oil emitted with the air

Increased Efficiency • QuickDraw™ Technology drastically increases tool speed • Cordless tools use 99% less energy than air tools • No pressure drops caused by compressors • No maintenance of oilers • No more supply line leaks

Freeset™ tools with QuickDraw™ Technology are faster than pneudraulic and hydraulic tools. They can detect when a rivet is applied and quickly reset without having to complete an entire stroke cycle. • 18V, 2.5 Ah Lithium Ion battery • 12-month warranty against manufacturing defects • Tool does not come supplied with nosepieces – they must be ordered separately Freeset™ tools have a battery management system that prevents users from starting a job if the battery life is too low. This eliminates the risk of the tool shutting down mid-installation and not setting the lockbolt properly. CAUTION: When operating always wear safety glasses to protect your eyes.
