The iconic Stimpson 405 bench press continues to be a staple on the busiest of production lines because of its legendary setting quality and ease of use. Proudly made in the USA since its first iteration over 100 years ago, this versatile grommet press features a lightweight but heavy-duty aluminum frame and is capable of setting a variety grommets & washers including self-piercing grommets, eyelets and snap sets. While its operation is manual, the quality of work it produces equals that of large automatic machines.

Weighing in at only 10 pounds, with a height of 12″, and a stroke of 1 3/4″, the 405 bench press, is easily transferable from work station to station to meet Stimpson_405_Grommet_Press_Professional_Grommet_Setting_Machinerychanging production needs. It is easily mounted on a bench using existing screw holes, or it can stand alone when mounted on the Stimpson base plate. Engineered for maximum productivity and to reduce operator fatigue, the 405 grommet press head lever is longer than most and therefore generates additional leverage allowing it to set grommets & washers through the thickest of material. Another advantage of the lever position is that the operator has an increased field of view and accessibility to both the grommet & washer and the material they are set in.  Operators can precisely dial in the appropriate amount of pressure to set the complete grommet & washer assembly using the built-in stroke adjusting screw for the perfect setting every time.

The Importance of Selecting the Appropriate Grommet Machine

At Stimpson, we understand the relationship between grommets & washers, the grommet press and the finished product is an important one. Setting grommets & washers with the 405 bench press improves the functionality of the finished product because the chance for collapsed barrels or split coils is dramatically reduced due to the head lever, stroke adjusting screw, and Stimpson high-quality dies working in tandem to achieve a complete setting.  When setting Stimpson grommets & washers, we recommend that you use our grommet presses and dies since tooling is not transferable from brand to brand.
