AP1 The AP1 press is a heavy duty, hand lever operated press, ideal for setting our entire range of curtain eyelets (yes, even the 50mm eyelet!). The AP1 is supplied on its own bench, making it ready for immediate use. It is also possible to supply the press without a bench, for customers who wish to incorporate it into existing workbenches.
The AP1’s moveable hand lever means that it can be placed in the most comfortable operating position for anybody who operates the machine.
Whilst the AP1 machine was originally designed to set our range of curtain eyelets it is also widely used for setting other types of fastener, such as rivets and press studs, making the AP1 a highly versatile machine suitable for use in all types of workroom.
AP2 In line with our continuing product development programme, DTP Supplies are pleased to present our AP2 machine, a heavier duty version of the existing AP1 machine. The AP2 machine is capable of dealing easily with all of our curtain eyelet range, setting all sizes with far less effort than you can imagine. The additional integral strength of the machine makes it easier to close eyelets but also means that the machine is terrifically robust and hardwearing. An option for the AP2 machine is our measuring guide which enables accurate placing of the eyelets into your curtains. The measuring guide allows accurate placing of the eyelet both from the top of the curtain and also from the side. The measuring guide is supplied in conjunction with a sturdy bench for the machine. Another new feature is the very useful handle rest making it easier to retrieve the handle after each operation. Whilst the AP2 was specifically designed to set our range of curtain eyelets it can also be used for setting a variety of other fasteners, such as rivets, press fasteners and cord clips to name but a few. Our in house Curtain Eyelet Setting Service is the quick and easy way for you to get professional results without the need to purchase setting machinery and training your staff.
