The first cordless rivet tool designed for the professional trades, the M12 Rivet Tool simplifies the overall riveting process. Engineered with Milwaukee’s advanced M12 technology, the new tool rivets up to 2 times faster and requires 65% less muscle effort than hand tools, eliminates the maintenance of pneumatic hoses and compressors, and can pop up to 3/16-inch stainless steel rivets.
The M12 Rivet Tooluses a scotch yolk mechanism, which dramatically impacts the tool’s performance versus the ball and screw mechanisms utilized by other rivet tools. The scotch yolk mechanism is much smaller, allowing the tool to deliver a huge amount of force in a more compact and shorter package.
Powered by M12 Redlithium batteries, the M12 Rivet Tool can pop over (250) 3/16-inch stainless steel rivets. The Redlithium Battery Pack delivers more work per charge and more work over pack life, maintaining power under load better. With a capacity of 3/32 inches, 1/8 inches, 5/32 inches, and 3/16 inches, the M12 Rivet Tool can pop a range of materials including aluminum, steel, and stainless steel rivets. Redlink Intelligence hardware and software integrates full-circle communication between the tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging.
For added utility, the M12 Rivet Tool also features a retention nose piece to keep the rivet in place during applications, as well as on-tool nose piece storage and a quick exchange front end for quick access and easy nose piece replacement.
Available in April, the new M12 Rivet Tool joins the largest sub-compact system in the industry, the M12 platform, now offering more than 90 professional cordless solutions focused on power, productivity, and portability. Milwaukee will continue to build upon this system by disrupting outdated solutions, such as hand tools and pneumatic, to provide true innovation for the jobsite.
