RivSmart Service + Repair
The RivSmart can be registered for the VIP Service within 30 days of the purchase date and a maximum of 1000 rivetings. Registration is only possible in combination with coupling of the riveter with the RivSmart app and completed registration on the Internet. The registration confirmation that must be immediately printed out together with the original purchase receipt showing the date of purchase serve as proof of registration. Please note that the complete VIP Service is not yet available in all countries.
Extended manufacturer’s warranty
The warranty period is 24 months, in industrial or professional use 12 months. The warranty period starts with the purchase by the initial buyer. The determining date for the warranty period is the date on the original purchase receipt. In the VIP Service, this period is extended to 36 months. A precondition for the extended “VIP warranty” is regular maintenance. The RivSmart draws attention to this at regular intervals. Further details can be found in the operating manual. The detailed warranty terms can be found here:
