PowerPoint Weld Pins save time and money because they perform consistently. Each point is precisely formed to provide optimum electrical resistance and each cap and shank assembly is securely swaged so that pins ill feed without jamming, even in older welders. In addition, PowerPoint Weld Pins may be shipped in plastic buckets to eliminate ship damage. The result is continuous production without the expense of clearing track jams or refastening where other pins could fail.
The fastener head, shank and point are manufactured from a special carbon alloy steel. A steel retaining cap is mechanically affixed to the driven end of the fastener.
PowerPoint Weld Pins meet or exceed the latest SMACNA (Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors National Association) standards, published in their 2005 HVAC DUCT CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS - METAL AND FLEXIBLE, for low and high velocity ductwork. They are used by leading air-conditioning, sheet metal and mechanical contractors for ductwork in commercial, residential and industrial buildings.
Better Welds - forged diamond point design creates more electrical resistance for better welds.
Super Sharp Point - the point is the sharpest in the industry and cleanly pierces the toughest duct liner.
Better Plating - zinc and chromate dipped exceeds SMACNA corrosion resistance standards and gives a more professional appearance.
Consistent Feeding - precise assembly of shank and caps along with a smoother plating reduces feeding problems in tracks of automatic equipment.
Retaining Cap - The beveled edge retaining cap is sufficient in size and design to depress the surface of the insulation without tearing or cutting it. The cap does not protrude into the air stream to create noise or interfere with air movement in the duct.
Temperature Range - PowerPoint Weld Pins function properly over normally accepted operating range of temperatures of 320F to 2500F and are not adversely affected at temperatures of 00F to 5500F.
Vibration - PowerPoint Weld Pins will not fatigue or be physically affected by vibrations normally found in high velocity air handling systems.
Environmentally Safe - When used as intended, PowerPoint Weld Pins are non-toxic and safe as defined by current Federal Standards.
Use standard personal protective equipment when applying fasteners at all times.
Insulated Caps Available - PowerPoint Weld Pins are available with dielectric coding on the underside of a galvanized cap to prevent arcing with foil faced insulation.
