Tesla Approves Pro Spot Riveting System

July 5, 2017
Tesla tested and approved the system for self-piercing rivet installation and removal; flow form hole preparation and installation; and structural blind rivets.

July 5, 2017—Tesla approved Pro Spot's PR-5 Riveting System and the Tesla die kit for collision repairs on Tesla vehicles.

Tesla tested and approved the system for self-piercing rivet (SPR) installation and removal, flow form hole preparation and installation, and structural blind rivets.

Pro Spot's riveting system applies and removes rivets as a cold joining process on heat sensitive materials, like aluminum. The rivet gun comes with a magnetic die kit for applying SPR and solid rivets, removing rivets and flattening. With today's vehicles, and all the different sized rivets used in collision repair, the PR-5 uses magnetic dies to assist in quick rivet changes. The PR-5 Riveter comes with two lithium rechargeable batteries and a charging dock.
