Fastening gun and part marking

The Amtak fastening gun is used for fastening 'Metal Tack' and 'Punch Pin' self-piercing rivets into all types of metal without having to drill holes in the base metal.

Available from Network Fasteners the gun uses compressed air - between 4 bar and 6 bar - to force the rivets in. "They are used in the fastening of identification plates, cable holders, and other parts on to different types of metals and castings thereby improving productivity and saving time and money in the production process", explains managing director Michael Churchill.

The company also is promoting direct part marking which, says Michael Churchill, is becoming more popular, particular where the use of identification tags is not an option. "We have developed an adaptor for use with the Amtak tool that allows it to be used for direct part marking by stamping letters, numbers, logos, and other markings on metal parts."
