New Atlas® RIV949 Hydropneumatic Tool Enables Quick and Easy Vertical Installation of Blind Threaded Inserts

Press release date: Oct 06, 2014

The new Atlas® RIV949 hydropneumatic tool enables quick and easy installation of blind threaded inserts by eliminating any need to reposition work pieces from their typical horizontal orientation.  This innovative tool allows users to install all types of Atlas steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass inserts in a wide variety of applications.

The Atlas RIV949 tool installs blind threaded hardware without requiring access to both sides, making it ideally suited for tubing, extrusion, and similar types of applications.  Upon installation, the inserts provide strong and reusable threads to accommodate mating hardware for final component attachment.

The tool is engineered with two different systems of regulation for insert installation – pull-to-pressure or pull-to-stroke. The pull-to-pressure mode in particular results in more consistent installations, especially in materials that vary in thickness within the grip range of the fastener, and prevents over-installing or double installing of the fastener.

The Atlas RIV949 tool can be equipped with unified or metric nose assemblies for installation of blind threaded inserts M3 to M12 / #4 to ½” or blind threaded studs from M4 to M8 / #8 to 5/16”.   The tool operates on 90 PSI air pressure and can develop 4721 pounds of pull force.

The new tool is introduced in Bulletin RIV949 and the entire line of Atlas tools and blind threaded insert products is profiled in the comprehensive Atlas Catalog.  Both the bulletin and the Catalog are available for downloading at www.pemnet.com
