Our D Series Commercial line of fastening, punching, and extracting equipment can easily be adapted to your particular application. Our R&D department has adapted this equipment to punch as small as 2mm DNA samples for genetics laboratories and up to larger 1/4 inch sizes to fasten plastic ID cards together for hotel guests, to string ID tags on apparel at ski resorts, for medical dose slide calculators, and another example of eyelet usage for the U.S. Army M4A1 Nuclear Yield Calculator to name a few. If we do not have a standard D series product that will fit your needs, we may be able to adapt a standard unit. E-Mail us for about any questions you may have about your application needs. The Bates Eyeleter line of fasteners are for basic light applications for the desktop environment. Eyeleters are not designed to punch holes in your work. Many have been able to insert eyelets in thin lightweight work like three to ten pieces of paper or the equivalent.  It is always recommended however, to supply a receiving hole in the work if you expect a clean or pristine setting operation from your eyeleter. Most legal and financial firms have certain letterheads used for wills and financial reports drilled by the ream by a printer to accommodate the eyelet.
