KPR1 (Foot operated ratchet press). Do not confuse this press with the "cheap", poor quality items flooding the country on popular "auction style" sites. A foot press is far more efficient than a hand press as it frees up both hands to control the work. Once KPR1 is set you can be confident that every item will be set at the correct pressure, virtually eliminating "failures" and the consequences of customer complaints, returns or worse.
KPR1 is supplied complete on a stand which incorporates two side trays for stud part storage. It is designed to attach most press fasteners, rivets eyelets, jeans buttons etc(see above). It is extremely versatile and can be used for placing piercing trim on textiles or paper and card.

We supply a full range of dies, which are made in the UK of hardened & tempered steel to fit our own ranges of hardware or your existing studs or eyelets. It's fully floating adjustable base allows precision horizontal alignment and exact vertical locking in order to obtain the optimum pressure setting for your item.
Once up to speed KPR1 is rated at approx. 240 studs an hour, thus eliminating the need for expensive and high maintenance pneumatic or electric machinery. Ideal for out-workers, can be easily transported. The "foot-print" is just approx 50cm x 50cm.
All new machines are sold with a 6 months back to base warranty, but anyone who has seen our KPR1 knows that it's solid construction & simple internal design will facilitate many years of faithful, trouble-free service.
