Nichol Industries are suppliers of pinstamping and other permanent identification machines.
The Telesis TMP1700 pinstamper is rugged and requires low-maintenance. A further option is now available to make the handy unit more flexible for manufacturers of large assemblies or sub-assemblies.
A handle/trigger assembly, depicted Hand-Held Tooling with Part Number 40721, converts the TMP1700 from a fixed piece of equipment into a fully-portable pinstamper and allows operators to carry the lightweight unit to any sizeable job and mark it accordingly in a generous window, up to 1-1/2 by 2-1/2 inches, in materials from soft plastics up to hardened steel — Rc60.
The handle kit includes an ergonomic handle with StartPrint pushbutton, flat-faced standoffs that maintain a preset distance between workpiece and pinstamper with pin stroke adjustment feature, plus an eyebolt for suspension of the TMP1700 from a cable balancer.
No special equipment or computer software is necessary to convert hand-held to machine-mounted or back, and common workshop tools are all that are needed for the quick change-over.
The Hand-Held Tooling kit is suitable for manufacturers who mark large parts that are difficult to move around the factory or for cost-conscious businesses that require the flexibility of a fixed/portable marking system.
