Milwaukee®’s New M12™ BPRT
Milwaukee® Tool continues to deliver portable productivity by expanding the largest sub-compact system in the industry, the M12™ platform, with the new M12™ BPRT.
Designed for the professional trades, the M12™ BPRT simplifies the overall riveting process. Engineered with Milwaukee®’s advanced M12™ technology, the new tool rivets up to 2x faster and requires considerably less muscle effort than that required for hand tools, eliminates the maintenance of pneumatic hoses and compressors, and can handle up to 4.8mm stainless steel rivets.
The traditional pneumatic machines and hand tools currently being used to rivet are time-consuming and costly with ongoing maintenance problems stalling projects. Considering the growth in pre-fabrication, assembly and field installation work, the introduction of Milwaukee’s new M12 BPRT could not have arrived at a better time.
The M12™ BPRT is the industry’s first riveter tool that uses a scotch yolk mechanism, which dramatically impacts the tool’s performance versus the ball and screw mechanisms used in other rivet tools. The scotch yolk mechanism is much smaller, allowing the tool to deliver a huge amount of force in a more compact and shorter package.
Powered by M12™ REDLITHIUM-ION™ batteries, the M12™ BPRT can rivet over 325 4.8mm stainless steel rivets. The REDLITHIUM-ION™ Battery Pack delivers more work per charge and more work over pack life, maintaining power under load better.
With a capacity of 2.4, 3.2, 4.0, and 4.8mm, the M12™ BPRT can rivet a range of materials including aluminium, steel, and stainless-steel rivets. REDLINK™ Intelligence hardware and software integrate full-circle communication between the tool, battery and charger to protect them from overloading, overheating, and over-discharging.
Whereas other non-powered hand tools of its type require the user to apply force consistently while using both hands, the single trigger engagement of the M12™ BPRT significantly reduces the muscle effort required to complete a rivet. This overall reduction in force and muscle effort may help decrease user injuries.
For added utility, the M12™ BPRT also features a retention nose piece to keep the rivet in place during applications, as well as on-tool nose piece storage and a quick exchange front end for quick access and easy nose piece replacement.
The new M12™ BPRT joins the largest sub-compact system in the industry, the M12™ platform, now offering more than 70 professional cordless solutions focused on power, productivity, and portability.
