With a 26-year history of providing production line quality tooling to North America, S-B Industries, Inc. introduces the newest in innovative cordless riveting technology from Lobster® Tools, models R1B1 and R1B2. The newest installments of the Lobster brand, the R1B1 and R1B2 untether operators from compressed air lines.
Using cordless technology, Lobster Tools provides the ultimate in convenience and total portability. For both factory and off-line field work, the R1B1 and R1B2 offer a high quality alternative to pneumatic blind rivet tools. With 1,911 and 2,922 lbs. of traction, respectively, Lobster’s new cordless riveters are capable of setting the majority of blind rivets. Both models are powered by a 14.4v, lithium-ion battery that fully charges in less than an hour.
“The R1B1 sets up to 3/16” standard rivets and the R1B2 sets up to 1/4” standard rivets providing a complete cordless choice to the industrial market,” said Michael Mervis, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for S-B Industries, Inc. “Lobster has always been a market innovator and their new series of cordless riveters continues that trend.”
Both tools have an ergonomic, well-balanced design and a comfortable grip. The R1B1 and R1B2 have a high capacity mandrel container that conveniently collects spent mandrels, with a built in safety feature to prevent spent mandrels from escaping the tool without the mandrel container attached.
A built-in LED spotlight illuminates the work area to help in dimly lit or narrow applications. An electronic digital counter will enable the user to manage rivet usage.
Designed and manufactured by Lobtex in Japan, the new cordless riveters are packaged in a molded plastic carry case for convenient transport. The R1B1 and R1B2 are shipped with a complete set of nosepieces, charger and battery back.
