Installation Tools

For over 70 years, the Cherry installation tools have been used by aircraft manufacturers and repair facilities throughout the world. Ergonomics, reliability and robustness backed by the Cherry Warranty and Technical Assistance are the leading characteristics of our tools. There are four types of riveters also available in a “split” version, in which a light hand held unit is connected by hoses to a remote power unit.
• Non-shifting riveters: only the active piston stroke provides
• Lockbolt Riveters: both the active and the return piston stroke
provide power
• Shifting (Double Action) Riveters: these Cherrylock™ riveters
have two pistons working together to complete the fastener
• Hand Powered Riveters: Operated by hand power, our G800
weighs less than 2 Lbs. and provides up to 5000 Lbs.of pull

We also offer a wide variety of straight, offset and right angle pulling heads, adaptors, tool and service kits. For assistance please contact us at 714-545-5511; we would be happy to help.

Ergonomics is a leading issue in employee health. The design of installation tools from Cherry® Aerospace goes beyond simplistic labels. They offer real alternatives to heavy and/or bulky tools, providing safe and effective performance. The Cherry riveters have an all metallic construction using the best high strength materials available, able to operate reliably in the harshest environments. They are designed for long life, optimum productivity and ease of use. With easy air removal from the hydraulic system (bleeding), fully serviceable, our riveters will provide many years of reliable operation. Extended length, right angle and offset pulling heads, as well as extensions and
adaptors, extend the capabilities of these pulling heads for use across different
riveters and in limited access areas. Split riveters, which separate the heavyduty power unit from the tool head, utilize long hoses to allow installations with
difficult access areas. Replaceable Nosepieces make our pulling heads versatile, allowing the use of the same tool for many types and sizes of fasteners. They also reduce your procurement and maintenance costs. Our installation tools provide the performance and benefits you need, retaining the value of your investment for years to come.
