Flexco driver suitable for aggregate industry use
Flexco pneumatic single-rivet driver now compatible with BR rivet solid plate for use in abrasive conditions
FLEXCO have announced that their pneumatic single-rivet driver is now compatible with Flexco BR rivet solid-plate fasteners and installation tools. When used in conjunction with these fasteners, the driver speeds installation by up to 33%.
The single-rivet driver features a dual handle for balance and ergonomic gripping, a heavy-duty drive rod for high-quality splices, and pneumatic driving power for a robust installation.
A single trigger pull per rivet saves both time and reduces worker fatigue, whilst collated rivets with washers and a specially designed steel guide block ensure that each trigger pull contributes to a consistent splice.
‘The pneumatic single-rivet driver really takes the guesswork out of rivet driving to give users a uniform, long-lasting splice every time,’ said Patrick Mukushina, product manager at Flexco.
‘The tool allows for more compression of the fastener plates which results in a smooth and consistent splice that is compatible with conveyor components.’
The air-powered, heavy-duty tool is built to last in even the most abrasive conditions and is protected by a portable carrying case that also makes it easy to transport.
Flexco’s BR solid-plate fasteners are well suited for use in sand and gravel, limestone, crushed rock, sand and gravel, hard rock mining, and cement.
The driver tool is also compatible with Flexco SR rivet-hinged fasteners, which are used in surface mining, coal, hard rock, asphalt plants, sand and gravel plants, and other demanding applications.
