When this stapler first appeared for sale in Italy in 1948, it was assumed to be the kind of office supply you would give to your grandchildren. Sixty-five years later, stapler savants still think of it as an unrivaled device for corralling papers, and the patented anti-jamming mechanism even comes with a lifetime guarantee.
But this plier stapler is not only a model of skillful design, it is one of functionality.
This stapler, with its small head and deep-set fulcrum point, can staple at any awkward angle or edge, and it comes with a box of 6/4 natural wire staples that can hold up to 15 sheets without a jam.
The body of the device, made of iron and steel from Europe, is reinforced with nickel-plated parts, making it rust and corrosion resistant. Enamel paint also coats the metal to protect it from wear.
The company that manufactures this device believes that a stapler is a professional tool which should never leave its user in trouble, which is why if something ever does go wrong, the stapler can be sent to the manufacturer for free repairs.
To load staples
Use the extractable pusher to secure staples in the rear-loading tray.
To avoid jamming the stapler, make sure not to use standard staples. The manufacturer also recommends not stapling without paper.
The stapler comes with a lifetime guarantee of manufacturing defects.
The metal plier office stapler is made up of 40 components. The process starts with iron, steel, and brass bands of different measures which are used to create the components using blanking and restart presses, equipped with moulds. The pins and pivots are made with automatic lathes. Different automatically fed machines weld together some intermediate components. Metal parts are then sent to the painting, thermic and surface-treating departments. Finally, the assembling of the staplers and the packaging.
The painting department, which applies the enamel coating to the staplers, eliminated long ago all lead and cadmium based pigments. Emissions into the atmosphere during the manufacturing of these staples have been purified by modern plants which reduce pollution as much as possible.
The company that makes these staplers, and has been doing so since 1948, was born from the meeting of two Italian families who have been collaborating harmoniously for 89 years. The company offers a life guarantee for manufacturing defects, and repairs their staplers free of charge.
Each stapler is made from raw materials sourced only in European countries, mostly Germany and Italy.
