The innovative technology developed by the UK SME is fully integrated into the nail and screw gun mechanism and will automate the process of filling holes left by the guns, reduce labour and as a result reduce the overall cost of the filling task.
Disposable filler strips that contain filler material in individual cells, are automatically dispensed by the indexing system to the head of the nail, either from a roll or fixed length strip. As the nail is fired from the gun it passes through a filler capsule and into the substrate. The filler is then pushed into the nail hole and the surface wiped clean.
The filler strips offer a potentially lucrative and innovative way to
sell pre-packaged bespoke filler compositions for high return.
The technology has been perfected over a period of several years and the SME is now in a position to enter into trade negotiations with a potential partner.
Significant market research has been carried out in the USA, UK
and the Far East with end users and suitable manufacturers.
This company is offering the full license rights in return for royalties to a trade partner with established routes to market and is also seeking manufacturers and/or distributors of automatic power tools and/or filler compounds and powders for nail and screw guns in the industrial sector worldwide.
