Jet Press supplies and supports Tee Nut insertion systems to many of the UK’s top furniture manufacturers. During the 1960s, the first four-prong Tee Nut, with its familiar eight sides, was manufactured by Sigma.
One-inch timber Rivet Tee Nuts provide greater strength and pull-through resistance, combined with a large head, allowing for a faster, deeper and straighter Tee Nut insertion, ensuring a superior quality product while maintaining production efficiency. Tee Nuts can be fed efficiently and reliably by machine, thus improving speed, accuracy and productivity.
Tee Nuts are typically used in foot and castor applications, where the extra hold-in is crucial. The metal prongs prevent rotation, and the unthreaded rivet portion flares to increase the holding power of the Tee Nut.
The result is a great lead-in and better retention of the castors, legs or feet, which then screw into the threaded Tee Nut. Additionally, there is the benefit of the Tee Nut resisting push-out, along with easier assembly and eliminating the requirement for over-stapling.
Thanks to the Chancellor’s announcement of a super deduction provision in the recent budget, customers can save 25% off a corporation tax bill when investing in Tee Nut insertion systems – when spending £8000 on a floorstanding insertion machine, customers can save £1976 (but this benefit only applies to purchases made between 1st April 2021 and 31st March 2023).
Jet Press carries a wide range of Sigma Tee Nuts and Tee Nut insertion machines. To learn more about how the company can help improve production efficiency, or the super deduction tax saving, contact the Jet Press team.
