The System's stronger yet detachable fasteners are ideal for whiskering and prewashing operations that give a faded or vintage appearance to jeans.

The Fastener Division of Avery Dennison Retail Information Services has developed a fast, highly versatile Plastic Staple system with advanced productivity, maintenance-related and energy-saving features. The system's Plastic Staple fasteners present a more attractive appearance and are easier to remove than metal staples, thread or other fastener types.

The product, called the Plastic Staple ST9500 System, attaches tickets and tags to apparel items using Plastic Staple ST9500 fasteners, improving productivity in apparel-finishing operations, especially those involving “bottoms” such as men's and women's jeans, casual pants, dress pants and shorts.

The Plastic Staple ST9500 System consists of the ST9500 Attacher, two needles available in Fine Fabric and Ultra Fine Fabric versions, and ST9500 Plastic Staple fasteners.

“The new Plastic Staple ST9500 System can speed up finishing operations, which have traditionally been an apparel-manufacturing bottleneck” says John Earley, Worldwide Business Development Manager for Avery Dennison Fastener Division. “The system can increase fastening productivity dramatically compared with other products on the market today.”

The Plastic Staple ST9500 System is a semiautomatic, operator-actuated system featuring a low-maintenance direct-drive motor. The technology utilized in the Plastic Staple ST9500 System is protected by existing Avery Dennison patents and additional patents are pending.

ST9500 Plastic Staple fasteners used with the system have greater tensile strength than standard Plastic Staple fasteners, yet can still be easily removed by hand. Fasteners are dispensed from a continuous reel containing 25,000 ST9500 Plastic Staple fasteners.

“In addition to fast ticket attachment, the ST9500 System is also ideal for whiskering and prewashing operations, which give a faded or vintage appearance to jeans, increasing their perceived value” says Earley. “This is not the case with existing products, introduced over 18 years ago, because they were designed solely for attaching waistband tickets and pocket flashers, not for 'whiskering.'

The stronger ST9500 Plastic Staple fasteners can hold multiple pleats of denim tightly together during the washing process. Later, they can be easily removed by hand.

“Also, the needle spacing is adjustable so that with just one staple size (12 millimeters) the needles can be set widely apart to secure thinner denim layers, or set more narrowly to secure thicker layers.”

The Plastic Staple ST9500 System has a top speed of .25 seconds for a full insertion cycle, much faster than the top speed of its predecessor, the Plastic Staple ST9000 and that of most competing ticket attachers. Speed can be adjusted up or down in .03- and/or .05-second increments to fit different application requirements. Cycles as slow as .60 seconds can be selected to process thicker materials.
