FireRex®

FireRex® 2 C WinTech

 

 

The FireRex® is our hydropneumatic setting tool for blind rivet nuts that features an external pressure booster to increase flexibility by some considerable margin.  There is also the option to integrate the FireRex®

in a robot application or equip it with setting process monitoring in the form of the FireRex® 2 C WinTech.

Flexibility

As a further development of the tried-and-tested FireFox® 2, the FireRex® is capable of setting blind rivet nuts at any conceivable angle in industrial manufacturing processes. The external pressure booster makes the FireRex® particularly suitable for use in tight spaces. The FireRex®'s special processing head is ideally suited for integration into manufacturing systems, linear guides and industrial robots, facilitating flexible and ergonomic working procedures in applications with restricted access.

Also available with setting process monitoring

In the production of critical components, the FireRex® 2 C WinTech can facilitate monitoring and documentation of the process results. The basis for monitoring the WinTech setting process is the tried-and-tested TAURUS® C. The setting process is evaluated with the aid of position and force sensors as well as integrated electronic circuitry. Up to three evaluation windows can be configured with special set-up software. A coloured LED on the tool shows the result of setting process monitoring. With a data line, the values can also be recorded and further processed.

Advantages

The FireRex® riveting gun is extremely lightweight and perfectly designed for processing blind rivet nuts in hard-to-reach places. The hose connection has a quick-release coupling and the gun can be detached from the external pressure booster if required without any risk of oil loss or venting. The FireRex® is ideally suited for installation in assembly benches, fixtures or semi-automated workstations. The setting tool can be equipped with almost all FireFox® 2 accessories, including extension units, a mandrel body container or blind rivet nut counter, the setting process monitoring system, the spring-loaded trigger system and remote control.
