Smart new features
The company has earned a global reputation for the impeccable alignment of blind rivets, blind rivet nuts and Rivstuds, which is possible because of the quality of its complete range. And these new additions are no exception. Most of our customers will know that setting rivet nuts can be tricky –undersetting of rivet nuts will cause the rivet nut to spin or pull out, while oversetting will damage tool and the rivet nut. But the Firebird Pro has a solution. The new tool features an LED display digital pressure control which provides accurate pulling force and easy adjustment to install M3-M12 rivet nuts. This feature takes the ‘guess work’ out of installing avoiding wasted time and also providing the perfect finish.
Using the innovative LED display digital pressure control
The tool comes with an easy to-understand setting guide for the LED display digital pressure control. You simply choose the rivet nut size and material you are installing in the chart provided, for example, M5 steel rivet nuts, locate the required setting number (for example, 60) and choose it on the panel. It’s important to note though, that this quick setting guide is only a starting point. Depending on the rivet nut manufacturer, profile, material and grip range, fine tuning the setting force may be required. Decrease or increase the setting force to obtain the perfect installation.
The latest tools offer the following new features:
- Increased stroke to 10mm
- Increased setting speed – compared with the previous Firebird model, the setting speed is doubled.
- Increased pulling force to 15KN (the FireBird Pro edition) and 20KN (the FireBird Pro Gold edition).
- The FireBird Pro Gold edition can Install rivet nuts up to M12 in steel. This is a substantive jump, as most battery rivet nut guns only install rivet nuts up to M10.
- Automatic wind-on (after pressing the trigger) and wind-off function shortens the setting time as well.
- The Mandrel storage case means that everything can be well organised, neatly packed and stored away to avoid losing parts.

Tips to set rivet nuts properly
Remember, always select the correct size of mandrel and nosepiece to set rivet nuts. Adjust the pulling force to set rivet nuts, but not oversetting. Check that the hole size in the material as well as its thickness suits the rivet nut’s specification.
