MISSISSAUGA -- Raptor® said its Raptor® polymer finish nails can provide a quick and safe clamping method for holding down multiple layers or small pieces in CNC router operations. The company said that using its composite nails will provide savings on set up and removal down time. In the video above, clamping and routing of a plywood panel using polymer nails is demonstrated.
In other woodworking applications where glue is used, such as door manufacturing, Raptor® nails act as a clamp holding parts together during drying. When Raptor® is utilized, there is no need to wait for the glue to dry before cutting, shaping, sanding and staining and there are no clamps to remove or metal nails to damage tools. Doors can immediately move throughout production without downtime, without tool or sander belt damage and without holes to putty. The result is streamlined production and beautiful end products made in less time with a measurable cost savings in labor and materials.
