Press release date: January 11, 2013

The new ATLAS® RIV 990 hexcutter tool is uniquely engineered to convert pre-drilled round holes to hexagonal holes and promote reliable installation of full or half-hex bodied blind threaded inserts.  The tool ideally suits the ATLAS FM™ product line of full metric blind threaded inserts offering solutions for attachment applications where only one side of a panel is accessible for hardware installation, such as tubing and extrusions.

The tool operates efficiently and cost-effectively on 90 PSI air pressure and accommodates interchangeable noses to correspond with hole-size requirements.  Upon proper hole conversion, a variety of full metric blind threaded inserts can be installed quickly and permanently in aluminum, steel, or stainless steel panels of any hardness and as thin as .020” / 0.5mm.  Inserts can be specified in a wide range of available thread sizes (from #8-32 to 5/16-18 and M4 to M8) and head styles (flat, thin, or countersunk).

Blind threaded inserts introduce practical assembly alternatives to tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, and self-drilling or tapping screws, and can resolve close-to-edge mounting challenges.  They can be installed anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field with a single mating screw completing final component attachment.

Detailed profiles, specifications, and capabilities for the RIV 990 tool and all ATLAS fastening solutions are available in the Atlas Catalog, which has been updated with a “Tool Selector Guide” to assist in determining the correct tool for an application.  The Catalog is available for downloading at www.pemnet.com
