If a Rivet T-Nut Machine is the answer, what was the question?

How can we improve production? James Hewlett, Industrial Designer at Repose Furniture, describes the situation before they invested in a Rivet T-Nut Machine. “Each chair has 20-30 T-Nuts. We were using tap in T-Nuts but they could easily fall out during production. So, we also had to staple a piece of card over the T-Nut to keep it in place. Both were manual operations and took a lot of time.”

With the support of David Elcocks, Production & Development Director at Repose Furniture, James looked at ways to improve the production process. He approached JET PRESS and sent samples of the materials to be used. JET PRESS returned them with Sigma Rivet T-Nuts inserted and it was clear a Rivet T-Nut Machine would be right for Repose Furniture.

According to James “Everything went smoothly. JET PRESS had the machine in stock and they came out, installed it and gave us the training. When we needed support the JET PRESS engineer came out despite the COVID situation and everything was sorted out. We are very happy with the process”.
 

Smoother faster production

James pointed out another benefit of the Rivet T-Nuts that we supplied. “These Rivet T-Nuts are flared so it takes the bolt better. No more cross-threading now”.

Repose Furniture are using the Table-Top T-Nut Insertion Machine. This machine is capable of up to 1,000 Rivet T-Nut insertions per hour. Currently Repose use it for the chairs that are made using their Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. This is around a third of their current production. James says “The machines are great. We save at least 5 seconds per insertion and the savings soon add up. They are very easy to use and the training was very simple. Once we start using the machine for all our production we may look at an additional machine”.

Like all our customers, Repose Furniture will benefit from free regular servicing as long as they keep using Sigma T-Nuts supplied by JET PRESS.
