When the tool makes the difference
riveting with stainless steel rivets

Stainless steel rivets are used when aesthetics and the ability to create a seal against the elements are essential.

For example, they are perfect for market sectors which include industrial kitchen equipment, the manufacture of trains, motor vehicles, boats and wind turbines, for the farming equipment production industry and in precision engineering projects, such as mechanical and medical devices.

Although they are state of the art, stainless steel rivets are quite sensitive to various parameters, such as crimping speed, application pressure and sequence, settings which can be crucial to the final quality of each application.

This is why Ober®, a leader in fastening tool production for 65 years, has created a new tool specifically for riveting which ensures high-quality, precise results.
BTR 170 “Rebel” by Ober® Cordless POWER. Portable and free to move about.
BTR 170 “Rebel” is the first CORDLESS electric-hydraulic riveter in stainless steel, featuring smart electronics and ON-BOARD control of all application parameters.

BTR 170 “Rebel” makes it easy to use rivets, even for applications which involve a combination of metal/plastic as well as other combinations of materials. This versatile tool can also be used in out-of-the-ordinary or difficult situations without sacrificing precision.
