Stanley launches new NB08PT-18 blind rivet nut tool

Stanley hasannounced the launch of its new blind rivet nut tool, the NB08PT-18. The new cordless tool for industrial manufacturing and ground transportation applications is able to boost operator mobility without compromising placement capabilities.

The NB08PT-18 has been designed so that its lightweight, cordless design allows for greater mobility, user comfort and ease-of-access across a broadest range of applications yet, while also eliminating the hazards associated with trailing compressed air lines. Its compact, ergonomic design and in-built LED light also work to offer greater operator function across tight, enclosed or hard-to-reach applications.

With the capability to install up to 900 (M6 steel) blind rivet nuts on a single charge DEWALT 2.0Ah battery; as well as the fast charging times and cross-tool benefits, the NB08PT-18 offers operators unparalleled productivity while cutting unnecessary downtime.

Additionally, the Stanley NB08PT-18 contains a wide range of quality control measures to ensure repeatable, reliable assemblies with every application. The easy-to-use touch screen control panel allows operators to quickly switch between pull to force or pull to stroke settings.

Onboard poke-yoke and cycle counter displays ensure fewer quality issues across all applications; and reduce the likelihood of incorrectly installed or missing fastenings which can often lead to expensive reworks or possible product recall. The touch screen controls are also password protected to mitigate the risk of introducing unnecessary quality issues; as well as advanced connectivity to allow operators to easily download application data from every job.

In addition, the NB08PT-18 incorporates a push-start function that allows the operator to mount blind rivet nuts onto the mandrel and reduce wasted handling time between fastenings. This feature, combined with tool-less, quick-change nose housing and pull to force or pull to stroke capabilities means that Stanley can offer operators a single cordless blind rivet nut tool of supreme adaptability; capable of delivering multiple applications across a wide range of differing plate thicknesses.

Sean McGain-Harding, Global Product Management Director at Stanley Engineered Fastening, said: “With the NB08PT-18 we wanted to offer operators a blind rivet nut tool with complete mobility: a tool that was both quicker, safer and more efficient. Ultimately, we feel we went one better, twinning complete mobility with increased performance and adaptability. It marks an exciting new development in the Stanley technology range of cordless tools.”
