The high-performance BR12PP-8 Smart Rivet Tool from STANLEY® Assembly Technologies, the global leader in precision fastening, allows manufacturers to reduce scrap, optimize the assembly area, and provide real-time process data to the existing plant manufacturing execution system by recording the stem break load and rivet pull distance.

“The product launch of the BR12PP-8, STANLEY Assembly Technologies is the latest development in partnership with the STANLEY® Engineered Fastening to offer the best in smart, cordless, programmable rivet setting technology,” said Deanna Postlethwaite, director of global product management at STANLEY Assembly Technologies.

The BR12PP-8 Smart Rivet Tool offers benefits including:

  • Digitally adjustable force and distance acceptance values
  • Use 1 tool for many rivets and applications for reduced cost of ownership and increased error detection
  • Detects errors in the process, preventing customer returns and recalls
  • Optional integrated force switch
  • Programmable multi-function button provides a simple, flexible way to complete many different tasks with a single button
  • Durable brushless DC servo motor engineered for the high production environment

This programmable, smart-rivet reporting system offers built-in, smart electronics that allow the tool to operate without a STANLEY Assembly Technologies QBE-Series Controller. This saves on setup time and cost. For customers requiring a QBE-Series Controller to connect to an error-proofing system, plant networks, and other advanced features, the BR12PP-8’s built-in WiFi provides the capability to add to a QBE-Series Controller for expanded convenience.

The BR12PP-8 tool’s digital transducer and encoder deliver precise force and distance measurements with memory for 16 preset rivet programs. Use the two, locally stored rivet traces to develop and enhance the manufacturing process, while saving the data associated with the last 500 rivet pull results for full process traceability.
