Rivet-nut insert

The SFS FLEX-5 tool Series features 5,000 lb (22 kN) of pulling force and 7 mm (0.276 in.) of available stroke. The tool installs rivet nuts from M3 to M10 and 6-32 to 3/8-24 and rivet nut studs from M5 to M8 and 10-24 to 5/16-24. The tool’s design offers the flexibility of both pull to pressure and pull to stroke installation methods. The SFS FLEX-5 can be upgraded from the original base tool to different levels of process monitoring that provide feedback to the operator ensuring each rivet nut is set properly. Upgrades such as conversion to an inline tool and conversion to a split tool with a remote booster are available.

The 4.2-lb SFS FLEX-5 has an all aluminum body and features a single stage trigger and socket-head cap screw mandrel.
