Features Automated Fastening System

Eletric connector automated fastening system

Electric connector

Our units use a single electric connector for all functions. The connector makes it easy to install and perform effortlessly for maintenance or service disassembly.

pneumatic and electrical actuation

Electric or pneumatic

Our automated fastening systems are available in both electric and pneumatic designs, so they can easily be integrated into your production.

Magazine sensor for automated fastening system

Magazine sensor

The magazine sensor controls the staple loading status. The sensor warns you when the magazine reaches low levels. Furthermore, it allows you to refill the magazine without interrupting production flow.

feeding controller automated fastening system

Feeding controller

This function warns when your automated fastening system is not firing any fasteners. It gives you full control of your staple consumption.

continuous reloading cylinder

Continuous reloading cylinder

Our precision engineered continuous reloading cylinder makes it possible for autonomous staple firing at high speed. The reloading cylinder ensures that reloading fasteners are produced efficiently from the magazine. Only for A1H models.

Split free nozzle automated fastening system A3

Split free nozzle (A3)

Avoiding splits and cracks when fastening wood on wood is a must in manufacturing. Josef kihlberg’s patented split free nozzle solution prevents splits in material when fastening.

Accessories Automated Fastening System
