American Pride Industrial Equipment and Knutson Engineering have recently completed a custom fabrication project to assist the setting of aluminum pins into a metal plate.  The current operation was to use a template on a bench and using a hammer and punch to set the pins.  Our semi-automated machine reduces the labor of hammering by using a pair of Honsa (Percussive Tooling - made in the USA) Air Riveters with a custom punch.  We also added a rotating table so two or four people can work at the same time. The operation not only saved time and increased production in the process, but also will help reduce injuries like HAVS. 

The unit is completely portable so it can be used at all job cites. American Pride has the capabilities to custom design machines to your specifications and applications.  To contact American Pride, please see our website at www.americanprideindustrial.com or call our toll free number at 1-877-739-8601.  

Declaring War on Hammers

American Pride Industrial Equipment, a “Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business” is declaring war on the use of Hammers.  We have noticed many employees are still opting to use a hammer to dive in or drive out steel pins and there is a much easier and safer way.  Honsa Ergonomic Technologies has developed a new style of percussive driver which will help reduce “Hand and Arm Vibration Syndrome” (HAVS).  Honsa has developed a propriety polymer used in their handle to reduce the vibration by as much as 90(+)%.  This reduction in vibration not only saves money in insurance costs it also increases productivity and happier employees. Please review our video on HAVS at: http://www.ampries.com/honsa.html
