CONTROLRIV4.0: indispensable to keep work under control

The Italian Rivit Srl’s CONTROLRIV4.0 is a monitoring system for blind rivets and rivet nuts, which helps to plan different placing operations, monitor the process of the work, and easily and safely analyse the resulting data.
The system is connected to the riveting tools and, according to the working methods and to the predetermined settings made by the operator, the work of one or more tools is monitored in real time in order to avoid mistakes and deactivations. The results are improved productivity, higher standard of work and reduced waste.
Designed in modules, the system features a Master and 11 Slaves to obtain up to 12 workstations managed simultaneously.
The Master, with a touch screen display and a user-friendly software, can easily interact with a PC, a PLC and download all the data of the work in a very simple way on portable storage drives.
The Slave, more compact than the Master, only manages the operation of the riveting tool by indicating its status on integrated LEDs. Though all the work is managed by the Master, the Slaves – in certain configurations – can communicate with the PLC independently.
Monitoring of the assembling operations develops by the study of the curves, through piece and batch counters, and work lists.
Work monitoring is supported by stored batch data, by all check activities, by implemented work lists and by the recorded curves.
For working phases, visual and sound alerts have been designed to highlight correct or wrong applications, particularly the lack of air in the latter case.
In addition, in order to have a clearer and more visible reference from afar, a three colour luminous tower with alarm siren is also available.
Every single unit features a pneumatic valve that turns compressed air on and off, to safely secure the system; best distinguish the working phases from the configuration ones; and prevent further errors in the event of a wrong application result.
CONTROLRIV4.0 works with tools for rivet nuts RIV912, RIV938, RIV939, RIV949 and RIV916B, and with tools for blind rivets RIV503, RIV504, RIV508, RIV511B and RIV300.
RIV938, designed to place female Rivsert from M3 to M10 and male Rivbolt from M4 to M10, is particularly for use in serial production and in industry.
It features a single trigger for both deformation and unscrewing of the rivet nut, thus shortening installation times.
RIV938 is equipped with automatic stroke adjustment; this device allows you to have control over the correct fastening of the rivet nut at any time. In other words, the operator does not have to worry about changing the stroke of the tool when the thicknesses vary, as it is the tool itself that adjusts the stroke automatically, to always obtain the optimal fastening.
Furthermore, with RIV938 you are sure that no piece will be damaged, not even at the end of the work because if one same rivet nut was to be pulled twice by mistake, the tool recognizes the error and does not deform the rivet nut twice, thus avoiding unnecessary expenses and waste of time.
The automatic rivet nut unscrewing function, was also designed to prevent a defective rivet nut, or a screw that remains inside the rivet nut, from compromising the installation work and slowing down or damaging the processing.
CONTROLRIV4.0 with RIV938 will be presented at Lamiera fair; come and see us in Hall 15, Stand F42.
