European market leader Rapid says it is launching a radical development in force reduction for manual staple guns.
According to the company, the ALU900 series is a revolutionary range, up to 65% easier to fire than conventional staple guns.
This is possible thanks to Rapid's new patented Powercurve technology, which makes the handle's power follow the hand's natural power curve exactly. This means that the gun applies the user's strength optimally, saving energy and reducing fatigue.
Powercurve technology was developed in conjunction with a physiotherapist who has carried out a number of studies into the muscles in the arm and how they are used in the manual stapling action.
