Hand Feed Grommet Press

Midwest Precision Products is proud to offer the value-added capabilities of a hand grommet press for efficient production runs for small-to-mid-range projects. The addition of this economical and versatile hand feed setting machine operation allows MPP to set plain sheet metal grommets, and self-piercing grommets and washers. The press leverages a built-in laser light pointer to easily and accurately locate the center of the setting target area for a perfect grommet hole and secure setting.

MPP’s grommet setting operation features on-site tooling for key basic types of industry standard grommets including:

Webbing Projects

#0: Plain Sheet Metal Grommet & Flat Washers

The #0 (1/4” hole size after setting) grommet is typically used for our seatbelt webbing. Because the webbing is tough, it is a two-step process: We simply punch a hole through the webbing with one set of tooling, then secure the grommet through the punched hole with a second set of tooling.
  • Stocked 2” wide black polyester MPP seatbelt style webbing
  • Stocked in Brass; Nickel & Black Ox available
  • The flange of the grommet is slightly domed & the edges are flat
  • The accompanying washer has a slight cup in it
  • These are the most commonly used grommets

Grommet Flange diameter .545

Banner and Tarp Projects

#3: Self-Piercing Grommets And Washers

The #3 (7/16” hole size after setting) self-piercing grommet goes through thin material–like a plastic tarp used for banners and vinyl.

This is a one step process where the grommet itself pierces the hole, and secures itself in one hit on the machine:
  • Using customer supplied material - assemblies
  • Stocked in Brass; Nickel & Black Ox available
  • Self-Piercing grommets can pierce your material without pre-punching a hole
  • Heavier gauge metal than plain grommets
