Rivet Faster & Easier with 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.

“When you take the time to consider the sheer amount of rivets needed during pre-fab, assembly, and field install work it’s hard to believe that many users still rely upon hand tools that strain the wrists. Moreover, users who aren’t using hand tools are turning to pneumatic and have to deal with the ongoing maintenance of hoses and compressors,” said Bela Berecz, Product Manager for

Milwaukee® Tool.

“The technology behind the M12 System allows us to create viable replacements for outdated solutions like these that have been used for years in certain applications, without compromising on power or functionality. In our research, we knew that we could utilize this technology to disrupt riveting applications by engineering one tool, designed specifically for the needs of the trades. As part of the M12 System, this tool also has the advantage of being completely compatible with the wide range of sub-compact tools available on this platform.”

The M12 BPRT is the industry’s first rivet tool that uses a scotch yolk mechanism, which dramatically impacts the tool’s performance versus the ball and screw mechanisms utilized by 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 aluminum, steel, and stainless steel rivets. REDLINK Intelligence hardware and software integrates 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.

Available June 2018, 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.

Milwaukee® will continue to build upon this system by disrupting outdated solutions, such as hand tools and pneumatic, to provide true innovation for the jobsite.
