Pneumatic Air Compression Riveter & Rivet Guns

For solid aluminium and steel Rivets , Cherry ,Avdel and Pop rivets

Professional Aerospace and industial tools for high productuion requirements

Tool requirements for riveting are determined by rivet diameter and material type such as copper, steel, titanium, aluminum, monel,            etc., and whether solid or semi-tubular. In the case of captive hardware such as studs, threaded inserts, floaters, stand offs,                  etc., diameter and material type must be considered. Whether your requirements are for the military, aerospace, airline or commercial        you are assured the finest quality and value .

General Pneumatic Tools

General Pneumatic AirTools are light, easy to hold and simple to operate. All are essentially noiseless except for the muffled exhaust. All    General Pneumatic Tools function as squeezers, not as hammers.This squeezing action whether in a hand held or stationary tool  is deemed necessary to produce the vital cold metal flow essential for proper retention of captive hardware. These same characteristics  assure uniformity required to meet the rigid specifications of MIL-403B.
