The Atlas RIV 990 hexcutter tool converts predrilled round holes to hexagonal holes and promotes installation of full or halfhex bodied blind threaded inserts. The tool suits the Atlas-FM product line of full metric blind threaded inserts for attachment applications where only one side of a panel is accessible for hardware installation, such as tubing and extrusions.

The tool operates on 90-psi air pressure and accommodates interchangeable noses to correspond with hole-size requirements. Upon proper hole conversion, a variety of full metric blind threaded inserts can be installed quickly and permanently in aluminum, steel, or stainless-steel panels of any hardness and as thin as 0.020 in./0.5 mm. Inserts can be specified in a wide range of available thread sizes from #8-32 to 5˜/16™š-18 and M4 to M8 and flat, thin, our countersunk head styles.

Blind-threaded inserts offer assembly alternatives to tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, and self-drilling or tapping screws, and can resolve close-to-edge mounting challenges. The inserts can be installed anywhere and at any stage with a single mating screw completing final component attachment.
