When we refer to industrial finishing work, manual machines or automatic machines quickly come to mind, but what about the pneumatic buttonhole machine? What does it consist of? Perhaps you have heard of it or have heard of it, but you don't know it in depth.

Today we will answer your questions. In this post we will answer the most frequently asked questions about pneumatic eyelet machines and their current importance in the footwear, PVC canvas, textile and graphic arts sectors.

What is a pneumatic eyelet machine and how exactly does it work? 

Pneumatic machines are known for their comfort, efficiency and power, very productive in industrial works. They are powered by compressed air, originated by a compressor and usually come with a foot pedal or button that the operator presses to position the eyelet comfortably. This allows the hands to be free to hold the material and focus on the quality of the finish.

JOPEVI's pneumatic machines incorporate a laser pointer option to ensure that the eyelets are placed in the right place, which is very practical and not all of them have.

How do pneumatic machines differ from automatic machines? 

Generally, pneumatic eyelet machines are smaller and lighter. Their ergonomic design makes them easier to move and transport to other parts of the workshop where finishing work is required. In addition, they offer more power, can be in full operation all day long, and are capable of punching and setting the eyelet at the same time by simply pressing the foot pedal.

What are the advantages of pneumatic machines over manual machines? 

Manual eyeletting machines focus all their attention on the operators, requiring much more physical effort and putting all the weight and pressure on them. Pneumatic eyelet machines, on the other hand, are more agile, perform the finishing work effortlessly, and can handle a higher level of production thanks to their greater power and consistency throughout the day.

What types of pneumatic machines are there? 

There are 3 different types of pneumatic machines you can find:

  • Automatic pneumatic machine 
  • Semi-automatic pneumatic machine
