How Does a Pneumatic Nutsert Tool Work?

June 5, 2019

A pneumatic nutsert tool is air-powered. The air pressure supplied by a shop air compressor forces the hydraulic oil in the tool to create enough force to upset/install the fastener.

  • Step 1: The pneumatic nutsert tool operator spins a rivet nut onto the tool’s threaded mandrel tip. Rivet Nut USA’s tools have “automatic” spin-on technology, saving an operator 1-2 seconds per install.
  • Step 2: The nutsert tool operator pulls the trigger and enough pneumatic/hydraulic pressure builds to collapse/upset the rivet nut body. The rivet nut is now securely connected/fastened to the frontside & backside parent material.
  • Step 3: The nutsert tool spins out the installed nutsert, again using “automatic” spin-out technology, saving the operator another 1-2 seconds per install.

Air-powered nutsert tools are ideal for medium-to-high volume industrial applications that require repeatable high-quality installations.

Pneumatic nutsert tools facilitate a fast rivet nut insertion process, and reduces operator fatigue associated when compared to using manual tools. Compared to electric tools, air powered nutsert guns are often lighter/smaller and can be paired with ergonomic accessories that Rivet Nut USA stocks. (A pneumatic tool can also be made ultra portable when driven by compressed carbon dioxide stored in small cylinders, or using a light on-the-go electric air compressor.)
