  • Patent number: 5098749
    Abstract: A workpiece-treating system and a related method are disclosed. Workpeices, such as for example coils of collated nails, are conveyed successively into a first container for treatment within a first bath, such as, for example a nail-cleaning bath, out from the first container, into a second container for treatment within a second bath, such as, for example nail-coating bath, and out from the second bath. A carrousel having three workpiece-holding platforms is used to convey the workpieces as mentioned. Means are provided for mounting the carrousel so as to enable the platforms to be conjointly and selectively raised or lowered and to enable the carrousel to be selectively indexed about a vertical axis through a cycle of three working positions when the platforms are raised. Means are provided for rotating each platform about a vertical axis for a selected period of time.

  • Patent number: 4343579
    Abstract: An adhered strip of nails that are held together, including a filament disposed under compression between the nail shanks to maintain the spacing between the shanks. The nails are also adhered by at least one adhesive tape extending across the shanks of the nail, which tape covers the filament and leaves an open area between the nail shanks other than the tape and said filament.

  • Patent number: 3966042
    Abstract: A strip of nails for use in a rapid-acting driving apparatus which includes a plurality of nails with shanks in a side-by-side closely spaced parallel array. The shanks of each of the nails in the array are secured together by a carrier of a single-component, metal-adherent plastic defining uniform envelopes for opposed sections of the periphery of each nail shank. Within the gaps between the shanks, adjacent envelopes form opposed spaced generally V-shaped folds which act as sites for easy shearing of a nail from the strip. The bond between the plastic and the nail shank is greater than the shear resistance of the carrier material between two adjacent fasteners and greater than the resistance of the workpiece encountered when fastener and carrier material penetrate the same, with the result that all the material that holds the fastener together enters the workpiece.
