Force Verification
For Rivetnuts

FREESET® is a groundbreaking technology which offers the freedom of battery operated tools combined with smart technologies to provide an interactive riveting experience.  This tool is ECO friendly and considered a Green technology as the battery life is managed by the tools microprocessor and smart charger. This extends battery life for years. In addition, this tool can be used in calculations  to reduce your CO2 foot print.

The concept is simple: Add intelligence to a high performance tool, with a renewable energy source and you arrive with the technology of FREESET®. FreeSet® is a tool offered in a variety of configurations which can meet and exceed the standards of its users. Whether operating without  access to a compressor, decluttering work cells, or incorporating error proofing strategies in the production line, FreeSet® can be configured to solve nearly any assembly problem.

The RivetKing Freeset Model# RK-787-2 is a force controlled model.  Usually tools to apply rivet nuts require either a pull-to-stroke or pull-to-pressure strategy.  The RK-787-2 is pull-to-force model which is an improvement traditional riveting methods.  Rivets are now installed using pull stroke and the tool stops when a desired installation force is reached.  This method is not dependent on any air pressure.  Its an exact installation to the desired clamp load.

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.
