tnut_machineYou can save money when you buy a T-Nut Insertion Machine and keep saving as you use it

You need to check your company’s circumstances, but here is how the new super deduction tax break announced in the March 2021 budget works. You buy a floor standing T-Nut Insertion Machine for £8,000. This is a qualifying investment so you can value it at 130% of the initial investment. This is £10,400. Deducting £10,400 from your taxable profits will save you 19% of the investment, which is £1,976 off your Corporation Tax bill. You can check the details here.

25p off your company tax bill for every £1 you spend

If you invest more - in a Drill, Drive and Rivet T-Nut Machine for instance - you can save even more on your tax bill. And we sell a range of smaller Table-Top Machines and T-Nut Insertion Handtools. If you want to know about the best option for your business you can talk to our furniture lead Kevin Parr, he’s the T-Nut King of the UK!

How to keep saving money  

Almost every major furniture manufacturer uses T-Nut Insertion Machines made by Sigma Machine Tools. Rivet T-Nuts are fast becoming a furniture industry standard for attaching castors and legs to wooden corner blocks. They increase the quality of the finished product and decrease the cost of manufacturing.

A Rivet T-Nut provides an excellent lead-in for a screw or bolt. As a result, you can expect a reduction in cross threading problems. This is very valuable when castors are being attached, especially if you expect customers to do it after delivery. Also, you will find by using a T-Nut Insertion Machine you can achieve greater accuracy and speed. If you ask customers to attach castors after delivery, they are less likely to insert them wrongly leading to costly returns.

Big manufactures make big savings

We recently sold our first double headed Drill, Drive and Rivet T-Nut Machine to a large bed component manufacturer in the UK. The cycle time for the drill, drive and rivet process is 2 seconds, so depending on the complexity of the application up to 1,500 insertions an hour is possible.  

Sofa makers Ashwood Designs have been producing bespoke upholstered furniture in the Welsh valleys for over 20 years. Design has always been at the heart of what they do – design for comfort, design for function and design for beauty. And as part of designing for efficiency they have just bought a second T-Nut Insertion Machine from us. This will allow them to have a machine dedicated to M6 T-Nuts and another to M8 T-Nuts so there is no down time when they want to swap from one to another.

Managing Director Mark Smith and his team have grown Ashley Manor to become the second largest sofa group in the UK. We have contributed to that growth by providing them with Sigma T-Nuts and a total of four T-Nut Insertion Machines.

Smaller workshops making savings

One of our customers makes riser recliner chairs for use in family homes, hospitals, care homes and other specialist environments. People who can walk but have difficulty getting out of a chair can have their lives transformed by one of these chairs. Many have castors, some have a weight limit of 50 stone. Our customer offers a 5-year warranty so you can understand why they invested in a Table-Top T-Nut Insertion Machine to deliver the best quality.

Another customer uses robots in their UK manufacturing facility that take components straight from the plastic moulding machine to the T-Nut Insertion Machine. This results in the pinpoint accuracy and consistent quality valued by their customers.

And it’s hard to think of a product that needs robust castors more than a flight case. These are the large boxes you see wheeled around in airports, exhibition halls and elsewhere. Our customer builds flight cases using Table-Top T-Nut Installation Machines. They insert Pronged T-Nuts into wood covered in a plastic composite.
