  • Publication number: 20210138621
    Abstract: A compressed air nailer comprises a working piston connected to a driving tappet configured to drive a fastener. A trigger and a placing sensor are configured to be actuated to aerate or deaerate a main control line to enable triggering of the driving process. A control valve assembly is configured to define a locked position and an open position by controlling a first pressure in a first control space and a second pressure in a second control space. The first control space is connected to the trigger valve and actuation of the trigger valve is configured to bring the safety valve assembly into the locked position. When the safety valve assembly is in the open position, an actuation of the placing sensor valve is configured to bring the safety valve assembly into the open position when the trigger valve is actuated.

  • Publication number: 20200306940
    Abstract: A compressed air nailer comprises a control line configured to trigger a driving process when a valve pin is displaced relative to a valve sleeve into an actuated position. The valve sleeve is configured to move between a triggering position and a locked position. A switching surface is coupled to at least one of a trigger and a placing sensor and configured to actuate the valve pin. An outer sleeve is configured to guide the valve sleeve. The switching surface is positioned at a switching surface position relative to the outer sleeve when both the trigger and the placing sensor are actuated. The switching surface is configured to displace the valve pin into the actuated position when the valve sleeve is positioned in the triggering position. The switching surface does not displace the valve pin into the actuated position when the valve sleeve is positioned in the locked position.

  • Publication number: 20200189078
    Abstract: A pneumatic nailer is provided comprising a working piston which is connected to a driving plunger for driving in a fastening means and which is subject to compressed air when a driving-in process is triggered, The nailer also includes a triggering device for initiating a driving-in process, a safety device configured to switch the nailer from a trigger-ready state to a locked state a control valve to control the pressure inside of the control chamber which includes a control valve member which is moveable along an adjustment path and a damper coupled to the control valve member.

  • Publication number: 20190176312
    Abstract: A pneumatic nailer comprises a working piston connected to a driving plunger that is configured for driving in a fastener, a triggering device, and a switching device. The triggering device comprises a manually-operated trigger, a contact sensor, and a force-transmitting device configured to control a control valve. The control valve triggers the driving process in single triggering mode resulting from an actuation of the trigger when the contact sensor is actuated. The switching device has a first position, a second position, and a control piston that is configured to move between the first position and the second position. The switching device is configured to change the force-transmitting device from a contact triggering mode to a contact triggering position. In contact triggering position, the force-transmitting device is configured to control the control valve when the trigger is actuated as a result of the actuation of the contact sensor.
