Riveting Applications


Rivet squeezers are often heavy, bulky, or both – yet riveting requires a high degree of precision. zeroG® can help.

Our zeroG® mechanical arms can transform a 15 lbs., 25 lbs. or even a 35 lbs. rivet squeezer into a fraction of its actual weight. This delivers a range of benefits:

  1. Productivity Boost
    • An operator can use his rivet squeezer for longer periods of time, due to less fatigue
    • By making even heavy rivet squeezers effectively weightless, zeroG® enables our customers to upgrade to heavier, more powerful equipment
  2. Reduce Injuries
    • Even light-weight rivet guns can place the body under tremendous strain – zeroG® eliminates that strain
  3. Improve quality
    • Taking the weight out of a rivet squeezer allows the tool’s operator to use more of his fine motor skills (because he is “guiding, not lifting” the rivet squeezer)
