KYOCERA SENCO Industrial Tools (SENCO), an industry leader in fasteners and powered nailers, staplers and screw drivers, has introduced its first-ever cordless stapler, the F-LXP. Using SENCO’s FUSION technology, the new stapler feels and performs like a true pneumatic stapler, with no hose or compressor required.
The F-LXP shoots 18-gauge L-wire staples with a 1/4” crown. Ideal for heavy upholstery, cabinet assembly, insulation, soundproofing, paneling, trim, sheathing, underlayment, siding, soffits and more, the F-LXP accommodates staples from 3/8” to 1-1/2” in length and packs the power to sink them in most common materials.
“SENCO revolutionized the cordless nailer industry when we created and launched FUSION cordless pneumatic technology in 2010,” said Eric Bellman, senior product manager for SENCO’s cordless tools. “That same powerful, time-tested technology — which harnesses air power rather than combustible gas or mechanical flywheels to drive fasteners — is now available in the F-LXP cordless stapler.”
Like all SENCO cordless tools, the F-LXP includes a self-contained compressed air cylinder. When the trigger is pulled, the tool’s driver blade is released, driving fasteners just like a traditional stapler. The tool’s 18-volt, lithium-ion battery powers an electric motor that recompresses the air in a fraction of a second, allowing for instant firing with no ramp-up time.
The air cylinder never needs refilling from everyday use. However, like all of the latest SENCO cordless tools, the F-LXP is designed to be service-center friendly. A pressure release valve allows the tool to be depressurized and refilled quickly and safely if maintenance or repair is required.
